Huong Viet (Revisited)

An Viet House
12-14 Englefield Road
N1 4LS

A's parents were in town and expressed interest in trying out our local Vietnamese restaurant, so A and I introduced them to it on a busy Friday night. Surprisingly, we managed not to over order this time, though we were still very full by the end of the meal. Starters included the crispy duck with pancakes and chargrilled squid pictured above. We also had summer rolls with prawn and A's dad ordered a small soup with tofu and greens. After we tore through those, the mains came out: steamed sea bass with chili, spring onion and ginger, lamb in a lemongrass and chili sauce, tofu with garlicky greens, and tofu with aubergine in a dill sauce. Everything was delicious and I liked the sauces so much I even ate a bit of white rice topped with nothing but sauce. Service was a bit of a shambles as usual, but at least they're apologetic for it. Thanks, S&C, for a nice meal!
