Review: Nguyen on Erskine (Sydney CBD)

Another Vietnamese lunch in the CBD! Is it getting boring? I hope not, because I’m really enjoying it! This time Sebastian and I went to a small sort-of-hidden but packed-full restaurant opposite Per Kilo. This place is called Nguyen on Erskine and although I hadn’t noticed before I remembered reading about it. Turns out that Simon had already reviewed it a couple of years ago and I had entered a comment! Go figure.

I liked the fact that the menu is stuck on the wall outside of the restaurant. Makes it easy to decided whether to step in or not.

There’s canteen-style hot food but we decided to go with something fresh(er).

The flat rice noodles tossed with garden vegetables and eggs in tamarind sauce with roast duck were okay, I guess. Sebastian thought they were pretty bland despite the extra chilli on top, I thought they tasted like standard Chinese takeaway.

The beef pho wasn’t that much better. Same story here, the broth didn’t feel particularly rich and the beef was of dubious quality.
