My friend Sebastian, who by now you know is very fond of Vietnamese cuisine, found a new (to us) place to try at the MLC Centre. Bun Me‘s menu looked suspiciously similar to Roll’d‘s (are double apostrophes allowed in English?), including the option to add extra meat to anything for $2.
We both chose salads as per usual, a prawn & pork papaya salad with extra meat for me, and a BBQ pork salad plus an egg omelette rice paper roll for him. From the photo below you can see the difference in size of the two salads.
Sebastian said his salad was very light on the meat; I was glad I ordered extra. Vegetables were fresh and crunchy, and I did get a ton of papaya, but the dressing lacked flavour. I rarely dump my whole container of dressing on my salad but this time I had to.
BBQ pork salad ($9.6)
Prawn & pork papaya salad ($10.6) + extra meat ($2)
The rice paper roll, according to Sebastian, was quite ordinary. Nothing like the low carb, veggie-filled soldiers at Roll’d IMO.
Egg omelette rice paper roll ($3)
