The Ambiance is spectacular at shiro indoor and outdoor seating its perfectly decorated creating a tranquil zen like atmosphere.


The event kick started with the master class energetic and Handsome Chef Hung showcased the very famous Vietnamese spring rolls/Goi Cuon which I totally love and prepare all the time at home. He Prepared these rolls with his own twist by adding a few extra ingredients like caramelized onions and a sauce made with coconut cream chillies and basil. All that we need is good quality rice paper. First dip the rice paper in luke warm water and place it on a cutting board start stacking with leafy veggies meats, fish or fried tofu along with thinly julienne carrots and so on then tightly snug and wrap into a roll and serve right away.
