It was retro celebration of my birthday at Le Soleil. It offers Vietnamese cuisine with a touch of Asian fusion. Fanny and I finished work to arrive at Tsim Sha Tsui East. Outside was a bit drizzle. Inside was warm and cosy. Tables were not crowded together. It's a soothing environment for friends' chat. Good pick, Fanny!
We started with an appetiser combination. It consisted of spring rolls 春卷, deep fried shrimp cake 越南蝦餅, rice paper roll with pork fillet 燒豬柳米紙卷, steamed rice flour pouche 越南粉包 and cabbage and chicken salad 牙車快沙律. All were tasty!
In between came our summer drinks. They are refreshing in the high summer and after a day of tired work. Our cod fillet was served with mango sauce which gave it a distinct flavour versus the Japanese grilled version with a dressing in the direction of soy. The fish was soft and tender. Very nice!
The quail cooked with rum in fire in front of us was fabulous! It was dramatic. Flame burnt the bird and then served on our plates. It retains the rum flavour, very fragrant. The succulent meat. Oh my God!
