Of all the regions I have 'travelled' to on my round the world foodie tour of London, I like Asia the best. So when I was invited to come and review Vietnamese MOC Kitchen in Charing Cross, I could only answer with a big fat 'Yes'.
My friend and I had picked a very rainy evening to go and eat at MOC Kitchen and when we both arrived there cold and wet, the welcome we received couldn't have been warmer.
We got out of our wet clothes and warmed up with our bottle of red wine, which wasn't actually Vietnamese, but very nice nonetheless.
I didn't really need to look at the starters on the menu as I already knew that I wanted a portion of the summer prawn rolls which didn't disappoint. We wanted to try something new and the waitress recommended the 'la lot' rolls which are betel leafs rolled around lemongrass infused beef. What a great recommendation that was.
My friend went for a mixed bowl dish with rice noodles with seafood. bean sprouts and ground peanuts.
The portions were pretty generous, so I'm afraid there aren't any pictures and opinions on the desserts. Maybe next time.
