Vietnamese Restaurant – Le Tournesol

I recently got addicted to the tv series Madmen… and now whenever I look at my mate (the one who introduced me to the tv series) – I realise that he looks like Don Draper (so from now onwards… he shall forever be nicknamed Mr Draper 🙂 and yes – he is THAT goodlooking!).

Mr Draper and I went exploring… ok … in all honesty, there was no exploring…. it was a Tuesday night before our public holiday and it was hot… and we both just wanted to grab a quick and cheerful dinner out (and I wanted to rush back home to catch a few more episodes of Betty, Don and Peggy… not to mention Joan!).

This place is definitely in the *cheap and cheerful* category…. situated on Vleurgat in Ixelles, it offers a Vietnamese menu well within the reasonable dinner category range.

I opted for the chicken noodles,

while Mr Draper ordered the chicken rice…

and within 5minutes (I kid you NOT), we were being served plates piled high.

The food was ok – nothing spectacular… we both added a bit more flavourings ourselves (I added Soya Sauce while he tried the chilli paste – both condiments were already found on our table) and the pieces of chicken were a bit sparse… and although I can’t say that it was a memorable dining experience, it was cheap, cheerful and edible.

Would I go back again…. hmmm.. maybe as a take-away option.
