Cost: $7.90 – $35
Overall Experience : 10/10
There are a few restaurants in Brisbane that I wish I could eat at everyday. Green Tea is one of them. Located in the heart of China Town Mall, only a stones throw from the Valley Station, Green Tea offers healthy, fresh, Vietnamese dishes at an affordable price. Out of the total 8 dishes that I sampled, I have zero recommendations. There was nothing at all that I could find fault with.
Yes, the food was amazing, but the service was even better. Welcomed, with warm smiles, and genuine care from staff, a rare trait to find in restaurants in these days.
Now to the menu; here are the dishes I got to sample:
SAN CHOY BOW
Usually designed to share, this is the ideal way to indulge without packing on the calories. Fresh, and healthy with textures and flavours that are out of this world. This dish is usually priced at $13.90 and I would definitely recommend it as an entree to kick off your meal.
That quail though. Spicy, but not too over bearing. Just the perfect size. It was cooked to perfection and worked really well with the crispy bed of lettuce below.This is amazing dish as well as most options on their menu is gluten free and dairy free. $14.90 for 2.
These bad boys come as a set of 4. If there is one thing you take away from this post, let it be this; next time you are in the valley order a few servings of this and have it with beer. Life is made. This is all I need to make me a happy woman! $7.90 to keep me happy, what a bargain!
VIETNAMESE CRISPY CREPE
My favourite dish on the entire menu, served traditionally. This interactive dish is best eaten in cos lettuce with your choice of condiments. The sauce accompanied with the dish is heavenly. Price $14.50.
All of the 3 mains served were perfect. As you can tell from the pictures, they were all accompanied with fresh vegetables as well a serve of tomato fried rice (not featured). The rice was absolutely delicious ans has been altered specifically for Green Tea.
