Fodor's Expert Review Red Lantern on Riley
Owned by Vietnamese TV chef Luke Nguyen, this restaurant is popular with his legions of TV fans. Diners should always start with the country's great export, rice paper rolls. Here you can have them filled with roast duck, enoki mushrooms, and herbs; or prawns and pork. Another ultra tasty dish is go chien don—crispy skinned chicken slowly poached in master stock with ginger, shallot, and oyster sauce. An unusual but yummy dessert is the black sesame seed dumplings with black sesame seed ice cream. For the full range of flavors, there's a tasting menu of nine dishes starting at A$70 per person (desserts an extra A$10).
