Bawai's Vietnamese Kitchen: Vietnamese Specialties in the Heart of BGC.

Bawai's Vietnamese Kitchen is one of BGC's best kept secrets when it comes to Vietnamese cuisine. Its ambience, charm, and food never failed to excite me due to my long-standing love for the culture.

Upon arriving, I was treated to these specialties:

The Guoi Cuon was their starter serving of fresh spring rolls. It had big pieces of shrimp slices, pork, lettuce, and vermicelli. I didn't prefer it that well; but I appreciated the effort in making it.

Bawai' House Salad at Php 345 was their delectable mix of cocount sprouts, pork, shrimp and special vinaigrette. It was an excellent starter for a meal.

A fine selection of their dishes.

The Tom Rang Me at Php 590 is composed of large tiger prawns fried with Tamarind sauce, herbs and sesame seeds. I must say that it was easy to eat due to the way it was cut.

Pho Bo. At Php 360, this dish is the quintessential Vietnamese pho. It has the all too familiar rice noodles, tender and thin beef strips, leeks, and the steaming hot broth that serves as the seasoning. The taste perfectly mimics the traditional preparation.

The Ban Da Lon at Php 80 was composed of pandan cake, mung bean, coconut paste, and sesame seeds. It tasted like our local kakanin.

Their Mint Cucumber shake was a tangy mix of mint and cucumber. It wasn't too sweet and it had a herby flavor.

The Bawai Garden Salad was notable for its arugula. It also had the typical mangoes and lettuce in the mix. This was a more conservative version of their salad. 

Com Suon Cha at Php 435 was deep fried pork belly. It was truly delectable for its soft, fall-off-the-bones texture. I enjoyed every bite!

Lastly, the Goi Ga was their version of chicken salad. It had cabbage, carrots, herbs, and steamed chicken. I liked it for its restrained yet full flavor.
