These pink chairs were calling my name πŸ’—

I want to branch out with the kind of restaurants I go to, and try something new and different. My sister is a big fan, and recommended Banana Tree, which is Indochinese cuisine, so I was really looking forward to trying it.
We ordered a range of starters to share, and a main meal each. For the starters we ordered;
Menkong Crispy Prawns, which is deep fried to a golden crisp and laced with mixed herbs, nuts & lime. Served with a sweet chilli dip. I must say it was much nicer than I expected! I generally am a fan of prawns, but they usually taste more or less the same everywhere. These however, had such a different flavour, and the batter was perfect, not soggy/cheap tasting, and not too crunchy or overpowering. And the nuts weirdly complimented them so well! Loved them.
Vegetarian Spring Rolls, that were average, nothing special, but nice. I must say the portion of spring rolls was three per serving, which I think is way too small for the price. The plate was filled with lettuce, and other stuff making it seem full.
Mekong Pulled Duck Spring Rolls, once again same issue with the portion. It was my first time trying Duck though, its so hard to find halal Duck, so I was excited to try it. I was pleasantly surprised as it wasn't dry like I heard it can be, and wasn't bland. With the lettuce wrapped around it, plus the dipping sauce, I loved it.
Spiced Chilli Beef, why not? Seeing as everything was halal on the menu. Was especially looking forward to this because it said "spiced and chilli". My sister did warn me though, that nothing was spicy on the menu. It was a disappointment, super dry, and tasted more like lamb than beef tbh πŸ€”

Lastly of the starters, Sticky Thai Wings. Marinated and tossed in our house special tamarind, garlic, sweet basil & chilli sauce. I didn't expect to like these as I'm not a fan of sweet and savoury things, but gave it a try anyway. As I expected, I didn't like it. (Continued in the comments)

Seurou Ndiago ✨ This beautiful cloth is hand made in the South of Senegal, Casamase. Highly valued in the Senegalese culture, so usually used for special occasions such as; weddings and birth ceremonies. Its expensive, and is commonly bought and gifted to the bride when getting married, or to in-laws when a baby is born.
My Mum's niece gave her what was once hers, when my Mum was leaving Senegal about 25 years ago. Everyone was giving her leaving gifts and she wanted to give her something too, so gave her this. How cute πŸ˜‚β€οΈ The other one is from a family friend 😊
