T`s Vietnamese Classics - Preston Martket, Preston
Busy ass place rubbing elbows with all nationalities competing for a table, cheap meats, fruits and vegetables. Be prepared to push and shove your way around this place. It is a great market no doubt, I have always preferred this over Vic Market for its price and freshness so when I saw a Vietnamese takeaway opened up I was pretty excited. Specialising mostly in other Vietnamese cuisine like Pho or other rice and noodle dishes, I was here for one thing. A shame no cold cuts on offer but the BBQ`d pork more than suffices. I was aghast when the lady put lettuce in this shapely offering and was tempted to throw it straight at the ground and stomp on it, but everything else looked so tasty and the lettuce was only minimal. A good spooning of a sweet fish sauce sealed the deal for me, with chilli seeds and and carrot floating in the bowl, it forgave the lettuce and turned out to be a tasty number although the bread was a let down.
Overall 7.5/10 Viet pigs swimming in fish sauce
