Northern Beaches venue, Harbord Diggers is fast becoming the mecca for dining with the opening of Vietnamese restaurant, Bau Truong.
Michael Thai and his family have run Bau Truong since 1995 and its Cabramatta restaurant is considered one of the most popular Vietnamese restaurants in Sydney. Serving a range of home-style dishes that are inspired by the flavours of the old Saigon markets, Bau Truong is delighted to bring its offering to Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Bau Truong has gradually become synonymous with quality, refined Vietnamese dining, boasting flavourful mains, exotic entrees, elegant desserts and a selection of cultural beverages. The delicacies served at all Bau Truong restaurants are safely guarded recipes which stem from the fond childhood memories of Vietnamese migrant, Bac Cang Nghieu.
For this latest venture, Bac Cang and her son Michael are bringing some of their classic dishes and traditional favourites to the shores of Freshwater.
“The Harbord Diggers menu has been developed with the coastal location in mind, with a number of fresh Vietnamese salads and noodle specialities joining with traditional curries and seafood stir fry dishes,” explained Michael.
“Popular dishes from our Western Sydney restaurants will also be included such as our pork and taro spring rolls, roast duck dumplings, beef and green mango salad, as well as our delectable golden fried soft shell crab in tamarind glaze,” he added.
With a focus on fresh flavours that stem from Bac Cang’s upbringing, Bau Truong at the Diggers also promises to cater for vegetarians and vegans as well as those with gluten intolerances.
“Many of the dishes on our Diggers menu cater for those with dietary requirements, with our okras in garlic and chilli, taro curry and vegetarian Peking pancakes some of our favourites and many of our entrees and mains are designed to be shared,” continued Michael.
“In time for the approaching warm weather we also have a great selection of Vietnamese beverages such as our fruit shakes and whole coconut that are perfect to enjoy with a pho or noodle dish for a light lunch,” he concluded.
Bau Truong follows in the footsteps of other successful restaurants, AcquaFresca by Pilu and Teddy Larkin’s Seafood and Steakhouse, as well as DD Collective café all located at the Diggers.
“Despite all that has happened globally this year, we are delighted to welcome Bau Truong to the Diggers to bring the flavours and dishes of Vietnam to the Northern Beaches community,” said Mounties Group CEO Dale Hunt.
“Bau Truong is a much loved restaurant at our Mounties club and we know that Michael and Bac Cang will bring their traditional flavours with a twist to ensure our members and guests can get their own slice of Vietnam right here on the Beaches,” he added.
Bau Truong is now open seven days a week for lunch and dinner at Harbord Diggers. To view the menu or book visit www.harborddiggers.com.au
