Our Luncheon Group comprises some 30 people who get together every 2nd Friday of the month to enjoy different dishes at different cafes and restaurants in the surrounding areas of Nillumbik. So far, the lunches have been mainly restricted to the typical Australian cuisines. But the pattern was broken on Friday, 13th October, when the decision was made to have a completely different menu, from an Asian restaurant. So, lunch was held at the Diamond Saigon (Vietnamese) restaurant at Diamond Creek. Some members started with the entrees of Vietnamese spring rolls, dim sims, or soups to warm up the appetite on a very cold day. The main courses included curry beef, scallops in ginger, garlic prawns, and chicken in lemongrass and chilli, and stir fried chicken and vegetables. Most people decided to share the different dishes on the table. The service was very efficient and the dishes arrived on time. The atmosphere was happy and relaxed. Even the restaurant owner, Ian, was very happy with the event. The final judgment: absolutely delicious!
