お店は豪華な造りで気分を盛り立てます。生春巻きと揚げ春巻きを注文したいのでセットをやめてアラカルトにしました。生春巻きは麺でかさ上げなどせず、香草でしっかり巻いてから薄い米皮で包み、濃厚なピーナツペーストにつけて頂きました。もう生春巻きの真打を味わった今、もう他の店で注文する気になりません。しかし直もっと感動したのはマンダリン特製の海老一匹をまるごと包んで揚げた三角春巻き。絶句するほど美味しかったです。鴨のオレンジ煮もフランスのラペルーズの看板料理を更に香ばしくソースにマンゴまで混ぜたのではないか?と思うほど旨味が濃縮してありました。 I started to yearn for a beautiful and clean looking place after string of street food stands. Mandarine is one gorgeous looking establishment in Saigon. It would have saved us a lot had we opted for a lunch set menu, but as we wished...More
