As much as I wanted to enjoy Vietnamese Cuisine, it is difficult to find establishments offering them here in Manila. So when I heard about that Market Cafe's Distinctly Danang offering where will serve authentic Vietnamese dishes from September 7 to 16, 2012, I couldn't pass up the chance. For this special event, they flew in Chef Ho Thi Tin and Chef Le Hoi Tuong from Hyatt Regency Danang Resort & Spa,Vietnam.
The Vietnamiese dishes are spread all over the buffet selections similar to the Jose Rizal selections before. I was delighted to see that there were many choices from Appetizer to Dessert.
I've had the pleasure of enjoying Thai Pomelo Salad before but I never encountered the Vietnamese version of it. This is one of the best Pomelo Salad that I have ever had. It is a salad topped with sesame seeds, carrots, pomelo, mint leaves, dried shrimp and fish sauce. It had a nice and refreshing twist having a sweet, tangy, salty and fresh flavor.
