The perfect balance of flavours

Considered one of the healthiest cuisines in the world, Vietnamese food embraces fresh, sweet and hot flavours that are truly hard to resist. With plenty of recipes overflowing with flavours, Vietnamese food is a standout amongst other cuisines.

Let’s begin by emphasising that there is more to Vietnamese food than a variety of ingredients to make a delicious meal.  There are five elements that correspond to tastes, organs, colours, senses and nutrients, which form the basis of all Vietnamese recipes.

At Bun Mese, we make sure to balance out the flavours to encompass all these elements. If you’ve ever wondered what brings the perfect balance of flavours to our banh mi’s, it’s because all our baguettes encompass all five fundamental taste elements in all ingredients used – spicy (chilli), bitter (daikon), salty (meats and soy sauce), sour and sweet (pickled carrots and daikon).

Not only that, but our rolls will also appeal to your five senses. Your eyes will find them appealing, take a bite and you’ll hear the freshness of our ingredients and taste our spices, you’ll smell the aroma of ingredients, and last but not least, you definitely won’t need cutlery to tuck into this fun and tasty Vietnamese street food.

Our baguettes are a great example of traditional Vietnamese cuisine which combines flavours and textures perfectly. Excite your senses and head down to Bun Mese for a little taste of Vietnam!

 

Bun Mese Back to Basics: Pâté

In this week’s edition of Bun Mese Back to Basics, we’re looking at the flavour hit that can make or break a banh mi roll: pâté! Traditionally made from pork liver with a pungent aroma, our Bun Mese version is refined and moreish. They are delicious when eaten just with one of our baked-daily baguettes or on a pork roll, both of which we have tried many a time.

Our smooth and rich pâté is decadent with the secret touch of our creamy mayo that enhances the pate to another level, ensuring all of our banh mi have a rich and velvety pâté. So what will you try it with? An Ol’ School, Cha Cha Chicken, Disco Beef, Pigsy, Peaking Duck, or the Vege? We dare you to try them all, because that’s how we roll.

Bun Mese back to basics

Bun Mese-Pork roll

At Bun Mese, we’re taking you back to the banh mi basics. This week’s edition is the building block of all good Vietnamese rolls, bread! We believe a great baguette is the single most important ingredient for delicious banh mi, and without fresh, fluffy, and crunchy bread, we’re left with sad, chewy and lifeless rolls – not fun for anyone!

After tasting our way through Sydney’s pork roll shops, and testing bakeries city-wide, we decided that the best way of producing the ultimate banh mi was to bake fresh in-store, so our customers would get an ultimate banh mi roll. After an extensive period of recipe testing (and many bread comas), we finally created our ultimate baguette – crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside, ready to be loaded up with different flavour combinations. Pop down to Bun Mese and put our rolls to the test. Our Ol’ School, Cha Cha Chicken, Disco Beef, Pigsy, Peaking Duck, or the Vege are the perfect match to a fresh and delicious roll. Yum!

Banh Cuon – steamed rice rolls (No Longer Available)

Feeling a little peckish, but not hungry enough for a big meal? Our special steamed rice rolls will hit the spot!

Banh Cuon- also known as Vietnamese Steamed Rice Roll, is a dish from North Vietnam. The word Banh Cuon, translate to mean ‘rolled cake’ – here’s a great video on how it’s made:

The rice sheet in banh cuon is extremely thin and delicate. It is made by steaming a slightly fermented rice batter on a cloth which is stretched over a pot of boiling water. It is a light dish, and is generally eaten for breakfast everywhere in Vietnam.

You can get our Banh Cuon for only $8. The choice of filling is yours; you can select Pork and Mushroom, Prawn, or Vegetarian.

Winter Special – Bo Luc Lac (No longer available)

Bo Luc Lac – also known as Vietnamese Shaking Beef – is a widely popular Vietnamese dish and is the meaty option for steak lovers. Bo stands for beef, while luc lac refers to the shaking or tossing of small pieces of beef back and forth in the wok after it’s been seared. Filled with delicious flavours, cooking Bo Luc Lac is easy and almost requires minimal effort to make. Due to this, there are many variations on how Bo Luc Lac is served and the ingredients used to make the dish can vary between restaurants, and if cooked yourself, can depend on ingredients readily available and personal tastes.

Don’t miss out on our Winter Special for Bo Luc Lac at Bun Mese. You can get our Bo Luc Lac (Shaking Beef) with Rice for just $9. See you soon!
