Buddha Taste – Blackheath

This place is my cuppa (bubble) tea 🍵 {press meal}

Bloomin’ ‘eck. Blackheath is a sexy part of town isn’t it? If I lived there, I’d 100% be a regular at the new veggie Vietnamese cafe there: @buddha_taste 🇻🇳

Here’s what I ate:

🥖 Nil-beef baguette w/ pickled salad, lettuce, cucumber, coriander & chilli
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? No. Nice & fresh but a little dry. Needed some kind of sauce

🍜 Bun Sa – rice noodles, lettuce, cucumber, pickled salad, mint, coriander, “fish” sauce, lemongrass nil-chicken & nil-pork
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes, this is right up my street. Loved the sauce. Would be nice if they made vegan spring rolls to go with it though

🍜 Cha La Vong w/ pan grilled nil-fish cake and homemade sauce
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes, quite unusual but I liked it. The dill stands out the most

🥟 Crispy gyoza
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes, really nice

🍄 Katsu curry w/ mixed mushroom patty, lettuce, cucumber, slaw, edamame & rice
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. They use apple in the sauce which is so unique. Loved the patties!
🏆 Fave dish

🌶 Hot glazed coated tofu w/ a fiery sauce, spring onions, coriander & ginger
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes! So dreamy. Lovely heat 🔥
🏆 Fave dish

🍚 Sweet & sour pulled nil-chicken w/ lemongrass, onion, lettuce, cucumber, pickled salad, coriander & rice
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? No – just preferred the other dishes but did enjoy the sauce

🍹Bubble tea
💰£3.70 – £5
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes, love bubble tea and they’ve nailed these
🏆 Fave dish
