We have been to Mama’s Buoi in Surry Hills and enjoyed the food and the experience. This time we visited their Crows nest location. Mama’s Buoi is Vietnamese restauatant doing traditional Viet home cooking with a modern twist. The service is fast and friendly and have a good drinks list with alot of nice cocktails. They are open for lunch and dinner. There is plenty of room with indoor and out door seating.
This restaurant has has a Banquet menu ay $49 to make it easy. They have also released a new specials menu called Mama’s Pigout, with each dish containg porcine inspiration. How good is pig as an ingredient!!! Be it bacon, porkbelly, pulled pork, braised or BBQ pork, bacon.
We were here with a group so the pigout menu worked. A great menu to share with plenty of delicious options.
All of the dishes were good including the crispy pork belly bao, the lemon grass pork spring rolls(a decent size), the crispy pancake with grilled pork(like viet tacos), crispy egg tofu in pork and mushroom XO sauce(fluffy tofu, with more of a Chinese flavour). With my favourites being the braised pork curry and the sticky Vietnamese pork ribs. Both super tender with delicious sauce.
For Dessert we had candied Bacon with fried peanut butter fig ice cream and cream cheese, a nice flavour combination well presented.
Check this place out for some nice cocktails and a flavoursome Vienamese feed with a modern touch. Better yet get some pork on your fork with the Mama’s Buoi pig out menu. #invited
