Green Peppercorn Restaurant Fairfield

 Lorenza and I shared a great meal with our friends Terence and Sandar to celebrate both Sandar and my birthdays which are within a few days of each other. We had wanted to find a reason to visit the Green Peppercorn Restaurant at Fairfield since they opened a few months ago.

The promise of some great Lao and Thai food, enjoyed in a contemporary, chic environment was well lived up to. The food was delicious and nicely presented. The service was prompt and friendly. We had to wait a while to get a table because on weekends they only take advance bookings for groups of 10 or more. the wait flew by as we joked with some kids playing on the tuk tuk that is part of the decorations.

We had Lao and Thai style green papaya salads (Tam Mak Hoong and Som Tam), it was fun to compare the two flavours together. The Yum Ped (roast duck salad) with lychees and salad greens was a great mixture of sweet and savoury. "Mum's sauce" was great with the marinated BBQ beef and the Lao sausage, the sauce was a spicy dippy sauce with lots of chilli. The crunchy rice salad (Nem Khao) was tasty too.

For dessert Lorenza and I went with some suggestions made by the staff, and we were glad we went with this. Lorenza had fried ice cream and I tried the pandan creme brulee - yum! Sandar had the sticky rice with durian and Terence the pandan waffles.

By the end of the meal it was hard to get up and leave, we were all full and very happy. You can find full details of the Green Peppercorn restaurant at their website here.
