Head to Palermo Hollywood for a true Eastern gastronomic sensation. The well-established and popular Vietnamese restaurant Green Bamboo balances the five essential elements of sweet, salty, bitter, spicy and sour tastes in a way that?s likely to keep even the most sophisticated palate interested. Tuck into a seafood-based menu of starters including prawns fried in sesame seeds and curry, and ginger and sweet chilli squid, then get stuck into the fish of the day marinated with tamarind, basil and shallots wrapped up in a bamboo leaf and barbecued. For a refreshing aperitif to bring your mouth back to life, give the Green Grass cocktail a try. With your stomach thrilled by the spicy delights, the bar area will keep your eyes amused with what some might describe as kitsch tat, all under the watchful gaze of Ho Chi Minh.
