New section at Macquarie Centre means new food adventures! There’s a whole new fresh market that just opened up about a week ago, and the sight is something akin to Asia. Swarming with people, lines everywhere and invasion of personal space. At night time the bustle seems to die down a little to give some breathing space. We wondered around and settled on The Foodie House! It is a mix of Malaysian and Vietnamese cuisines.
Pork Heaven, $13.90
Marinated minced pork and prawn with soy sauce, pepper, garlic, then deep fried until golden brown and served with vermicelli noodle. I assumed that because of the pricing that this was a main sized meal, so when the dish came out, I was terribly disappointed. I guess even the Gods know that I am supposed to be cutting down on portion sizes. The little balls were very flavoursome and they were delightfully crunchy. They were like little pork and prawn doughnuts, and because of the hole in the middle I was able to stuff if full of pickled veggies and vermicelli. :)
Roast Duck Noodles, $13.90
The soup was thick and full of flavour and the meat freshly sliced off the duck when the order has been placed. A sprinkle of fresh chilli into the broth and this makes for a fitting meal on a cold winters night.
There were many other awesome drinks and dishes that are definitely on the to-eat list for our next visit when the crowds die down a bit.
