We wanted to try a Vietnamese restaurant we haven't tried before, so we decided to walk into the fresh, slick looking Vietnamese restaurant: "Bau Truong" next to the Commonwealth Bank on John Street in Cabramatta.

We wanted to try things that were different to what we usually order....we flicked through the menu...it was long and varied...providing lots of choice.

We tried a nice seafood Vietnamese lotus salad; tamarind crab, 7 flavours of fish, 7 flavours of beef and fried eel....

Seafood Vietnamese lotus salad: this was nice and refreshing and the salad dressing complemented the salad well.

Tamarind Crab: this was a different variation to the usual ginger/shallot traditional way of cooking crab, it tasted pretty good, though I personally found it a bit too sweet and overpowering, taking away a lot of the natural taste of the crab.

7 flavours of fish: All 7 "flavours"/dishes of the fish came out on one big platter dish, it was quite novel to have it all on the one platter. However, when it came to taste, the fish salad dish was a standout but all the other 6 fish dishes were pretty average.

7 flavours of beef: Once again, all 7 flavours came out on the one platter, the cubes of beef dish was the best tasting one, however, all the rest were quite average.

Fried Eel: This was definitely the best dish of the night, the soft texture of the eel was encased in a light crispy coating....just delicious!
