The Rice Hut Opens – Yeah!

I have been waiting for these girls to open their new Vietnamese cafe in Kenmore, Brisbane. Every week I visit them at the Farmer’s Markets at the Powerhouse, New Farm and their food never disappoints!

My favourite foods for Saturdays at the markets are Vietnamese Chicken Salad – which can be made gluten free for Summer and Pho for Winter. Then I have a standing order for 2 chicken rice paper rolls for hubby and myself for lunch. Both of the sauces they provide are divine and we are always sorry when we finish them.

Today is opening day and hubby and I made sure we were there. The menu is fantastic with quite a few options for us GF people.

As you would expect with Vietnamese cooking ingredients are fresh on the day and prepared to order. We opted for a Belly Slaw (to share) and couldn’t go past a Shredded Chicken Salad to go with it (we really can’t resist this!). They were as usual, sensitive to our dietary needs and checked to see how we went with chillies! Yes we are whiteys!?!

Who could not love these two infectiously friendly ladies. I hope they have wonderful success with this venture as I am planning to get some late week dinners (takeaway) for hubby to bring home after work on occasion.
