A delicious fiery kick into Southeast asian cuisine
Let me introduce to you Mekong Baby Restaurant & Bar, situated in Ponsonby, this place is an ideal location for lunch or dinner! They offer Southeast Asian cuisine in a decadent, authentic way…meaning the chefs do not hold off on the spices! There is a certain modernity about Mekong Baby with its clean yet colourful interior design. I am an advocate for trying something new each time, so to start we ordered Betel Leaf, Crab, Kaffir Lime & Chilli ($6 each.) I must say that this small indulgent mouthful was truly a flavour bomb inside my mouth and the presentation was exquisite (as seen in the picture!) I could taste the fiery chilli, the mellow crabmeat and the kaffir lime. Other "Small Beginnings" include the Quail Egg Dumpling ($6 each) and the Khmer Beef Skewers. Read more on my blog!
