The verdict

Lower Mekong is plating up quality Vietnamese street-food in Kensington Street, Sydney’s multicultural dining precinct.

And why is this a great thing? Because we love street-food eats. And why do we love them? Because street-food is damn tasty, fast and practical in two senses; easy to eat and satisfying to the max. Aaaaand it's probably pretty cheap too.

Located at the entrance of Spice Alley in a glass and steel building, the latest venture from rising star Asian chef Tiw Rakarin has a distinctive take on traditional dishes niched within Vietnamese and Thai street food.

Give your tastebuds a little snippet of the flavours of Saigon in its casual dining sphere with entree-sized dishes, mains and traditional desserts (we suggest the banana sago or milo creme caramel… or both). Fill your bellies up with chewy pork belly buns, rice paper pancakes or lemongrass smoked duck chilli served on an authentic Vietnamese betel leaf. 

Our favourite soul-warming staples make an appearance too with steamy bowls of beef and chicken noodle soup, fresh salads, curries, fluffy-bodied broths and kick ass spices!
