An Uong is created by Richard, Zico and Lee. A combination of chef, hospitality expert and business man. They focus on bringing the taste from north, south and central Vietnam. Transforming authentic Vietnam food to a tapas style food with wholesome flavour yet remain light.

I decided to visit An Uong on a weekdays lunch time with my mom and my baby. I was greeted by a super friendly and warm waitress. She is the only one that day and she work hard while maintaining her smile to all the customers. We started our meal with a cold Vietnamese Coffee and Young Coconut.

Betel San Choi Bao - prawn, lemongrass, chilli, lime with betel leaf ($6). This was the highlight of our meal, as you can guess our lunch start with a high node. The seasonings was strong and delicious, matched really well with the betel leaf.

Crispy Eggplant - tempura eggplant chips with sweet and spicy sauce ($15). I was excited about this dish but sadly the batter was a bit too thick so the eggplant was kinda loss in it but the seasonings was quiet nice.

Beets Duck Salad - beetroots, confit duck, herbs with rice cracker ($19). I did not like this dish, the beet jelly was a bit too strong for my taste but the duck was tender and the rice cracker was super crispy without being to oily.

Chicken Spring Rolls ($12/6pcs). The spring rolls was thin, crispy on the outside and pretty moist on the inside. I would like stronger flavour on the sauce and the fillings but the vegetables with spring rolls is always a nice match.

Pho Bo - beef broth, black angus beef brisket, ox tail and raw flank served with bean shot and herbs ($16). I requested to try their pho but sadly I left a bit disappointed. The beef was nice, tender and delicious but the broth was too salty and I wanted more depth of flavours.

Mum's Thit Kho Tau - caramelised pork belly, free range eggs, coconut juice served with pickled greens ($29), taro crisp ($3) and jasmine rice ($3.5). The pork belly was super soft and tender, we love them. The egg was beautifully made, I would eat it everyday.

Banh Flan - Vietnamese creme caramel with burnt figs ($12). This was my second favourite of the day and my mom's favourite. Must try! Sweet but not overly sweet with smooth texture. What's not too like?

An Uong has a warm hospitality from the beginning to end, that I appreciate so much. It has plenty of street parking but it could be challenging since Bridge road is almost always busy. It begins with a flavoursome starters and ends with delicious smooth dessert.
