A while ago I saw here doing a competition on their Instagram account, I never win anything my luck isn’t that good but I thought lets try it and see what happens.

It was to win a £20 voucher.

I did what needed to be done to enter and thought nothing else, until I was closing up for work and I got a notification on my phone and woohoo I won. I was very shocked as I said I never win anything, most I’ve ever won was £1 on the lotto so this was very cool.

It took me till now to actually go and use it, but was it worth the win and wait? continue reading to find out.

The Food :

Today I was drinking a lot of water, and had a late lunch so I didn’t order too much.

Banh Phong Tom £1.80
Prawn crackers

I am a fan of prawn crackers from any place, so this as a little snack while the main gets made is perfect.

The darker crackers are Thai crackers, these are amazing and packed with a nice slightly spicy flavour and have more of a crunch to them.

The dip that came with them was a nut dip, I couldn’t take this as I can’t take nuts but am sure it would be nice if you are a fan.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 4

Pho Hai San £10.75
Seafood Noodle Soup : King Prawns and squid in either chicken and lemongrass or vegetable broth

This for me was a very random option, I would never order this normally but since I had a voucher I thought lets give it a shot.

When it arrived it looked nice, but it really smelled good…my only issue was chop stick! not Kris friendly or should I say Kris isn’t friendly with them….I really need to learn so I used the big spoon and tried my best.

To be honest apart from the struggle to eat it for me (but thats me), there wasn’t really a strong fish taste to this dish.

The broth part and noodles were very nice.

Overall this was good and very filling, would I get it again…maybe but only once I learn chop sticks.

Saigon 4.9% £3.95
Light amber beer

I tried the other 2 beers last time so this was last to check out.

It was a very light beer, and an easy to drink beer.

Overall :

Finally I got round to using my voucher, and I tried a dish I normally wouldn’t have so it was a good evening.

I would like to thank Hanoi again for the win, it was very much appreciated and well used 🙂
