Phamish: Prawn Cakes, Vietnamese, Darlinghurst (20 Oct 2009)

Shop 109, 50 Burton St, Darlinghurst NSW 2010

Oh no, pancake faves sold out!

When my favourite Duck and Prawn Pancakes are sold out it's a sad affair but luckily they still had the Chicken and Prawn Pancakes on the menu which are slightly cheaper and still very good. I can recommend the Prawn Cakes as well which are tasty deep fried morsels of goodness. The Vietnamese home-style pan-fried rice flour dumplings are interesting although are packed with garlic chives which does tend to linger on the breath. I think I'd prefer them to be balanced with something else inside like mushroom but then it probably wouldn't be traditional. The simple stir-fried Ginger and Shallot Chicken is nice to get your balance of broccoli and wood-ear mushroom.

The pancakes look lovely - I like the way you can see through them. The mushrooms look cool too.
