Tra Vinh Australia: Southern Vietnamese Cuisine (Banawe Quezon City)

Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines

It has become quite obvious for me that it has been a long time since my first time to visit Banawe and tried Kao Chi because I had no idea that it is now replaced by Tra Vinh Australia.

I almost didn't recognize the place because of the total make over.

Tra Vinh feels very clean, spacious and bright.  I was amused by their Asian-conical-hat-shaped lamps.

I first wondered the sign said Tra Vinh Australia... only to find out that one of the partners is the owner of Tra Vinh Australia.  Tra Vinh is actually a name of a province in Vietnam.  

I was fortunate to meet one of the owners Michael who oriented me with some of their dishes.  Michael explained that just like any other cuisine, Vietnamese Cuisine has different versions in each region.  Thus, I was very intrigued as this is my first time to try the interpretation of the Southern region of Vietnam.

Prawn Pomelo Salad (240 php)

For starters, we had the Prawn Pomelo Salad.  This is the most bountiful Prawn Pomelo Salad I have ever encountered.  I could tell by the looks of the huge orange prawns that they are fresh.  Eat this by placing a piece of pawn and some pomelo bits on the crackers.

Fresh Spring Roll Special (180 php)

The Fresh Spring Roll Special with prawn and pork is hands down the best one I've tried.  The key to this dish is its fresh and quality ingredients.

Combination Beef Noodle Soup (180 php -S / 230 php - Reg / 299 php Lrg.)

Never ever leave this place without trying their Combination Beef Noodle Soup.   You can see the meat partially raw and being cooked by the hot soup.  This gives you a sweet juicy beefy flavor upon indulging yourself with their tender beef slices.  I swear I couldn't help but close my eyes and savor the wonderful sensation.  Winner talaga!

Vietnamese Iced Coffee (100 php)
They use authentic Vietnamese coffee beans for their Vietnamese Iced Coffee.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
If you love light tasting food like I do, then you will surely appreciate the wonderful balance of flavors that Tra Vinh Australia has to offer.  Everything for me was perfect!  Although it is distant from my home, I will surely bring the family here on my next visit.
