Rice Paper (Invited)

Rice Paper restaurant sits in the busiest part of the city. The restaurant it self was quite spacious, fits in around 30 people with the front section dedicated to take away spring rolls, rice vermicelli rolls and more takeaway variety food. It had an ordering system similar to Pappa Rich, where you have to fill in a from with number and quantity to order. Then the staff will put in the order for you then straight to the cashier after meal to pay.

I was given $35 Rice Paper voucher to have a taste of their Vietnamese Street Food. I went in on a wet, windy, cold Friday and I'm dreaming of hot soup to warm up my body.I started with Soft Shell Crab Bao ($5). The bao it self was a bit dry and needed to be fluffier and I was expecting amore soft shell crab. The taste it self was well seasoned.

Beef and Beef Balls Pho ($12). It comes in a pretty generous portion and meat. The noodles were slippery, smooth and tasty. Out of all this is the best dish of the night. The soup had a pleasant tasty taste from herb rather than beef broth.

Lemongrass Chicken with rice ($13). The chicken was pretty decent and juicy but there was nothing special or outstanding anyway. It comes in a generous portion for a $13 meal.

Freshly Pressed Sugar Cane juice on ice ($6). I really like sugar cane juice and really excited when I saw it in the menu. But sadly this one was way too sweet for my taste.

The service was fast, pretty friendly and the meal was substantial enough for the both of us, we even take some of the chicken home.
