Mango Mango Review
A spinoff of the original Mango Rooms in Old Town, this Vietnamese-fusion restaurant is located along the river directly across from the Japanese Covered Bridge. Owner-chef "Duc" has created an innovative menu of modern-Asian-meets-the-world, inspired from his 20-plus years of travels abroad. The seared tuna served on a bed of mango, tomatoes, and cilantro is remarkably flavorful, and the snapper coated in cashews is about as fresh as it gets. Duc goes to the local market to find ingredients like giant prawns, which he bathes in a sauce of white wine, passion fruit, and bitter chocolate. Many of the dishes stay true to classic Vietnamese cuisine such as the spring rolls, crusted duck, and fried rice wrapped in banana leaves.
