"Mum's cooking is the best," says Huong Vu of the Vietnamese food at her family's restaurant VIETSENSE
When Food is Love
“Mum’s cooking is the best,” smiles owner Huong Vu of her family’s Vietnamese restaurant Vietsense.
“When Food is Love” is their motto as all the food is prepared by the family matriarch with the same passion and love that she puts into the food her family eats.
Huong Vu oversees the floor, and she is the mastermind behind the modern white walls and the atmospheric photos from Vietnamese streetscapes.

Fresh Food with Very Little Fat
“Vietnamese food is quite modern,” Huong Vu says, “as it is mostly fresh greens and herbs, and it is very low in fat.”
“If you are new to Vietnamese food you should definitely try the starters,” she enthuses, “that way you get to try a bit of everything.”
Two of the most popular dishes are the Lotus Salad and the Vietnamese spring rolls.
Huong Vu explains: “The spring rolls are based on a secret family recipe which ensures that they absorb very little oil, just enough to make them crisp and tasty.”

Huong Vu recommends the desserts made by her brother-in-law.
“He is of Chinese origin but trained in European cooking, and every week he makes a new delicious dessert. This week it is Mango truffle with coconut cream.”
Possibly not quite as low in fat but definitely made with passion …
