Diep At Home


by Bill O'Sullivan
09th Apr 2014

Having organized an evening dinner to watch Boys Don’t Cry with a few of my friends who share my Chloe Sevigny obsession (it’s nice that), ‘make Diep? was suggested upon finding me sipping white wine and guzzling crisps in front of a gaping empty fridge. There were five of us and we decided that ordering starters and mains for four was the solution – for variety and sharing purposes. There was one vegetarian among us, and our friend Jeremy, who upon being asked if he was vegetarian replied ?Yeh, I eat everything.?

Beginning with the starters, the aromatic duck pancakes won out for me, as I love how the hoi sin flavour is counterbalanced by the cucumber. The vegetarian spring-rolls were also a favourite. Predominantly we were drawn towards curries. I went for a Panang with chicken, whilst Jeremy went for the naturally more virile choice of Rendang (after just having scoffed a platter of the sticky ribs), a spicy beef curry, which is served with coconut rice. The vegetarian ordered a Phad Thai Tofu and Vegetables, which was gorged upon by all the meat eaters with little to no regard for her.

We gorged and it was good. Boys Don’t Cry also worked out, revealing itself to be the pippin of movies. Jeremy enjoyed it so much he missed the last bus and took the couch for the night. Had the night been a success due to the magnetic force of my personality? Or was it the Diep?

For those of you who like us enjoy Diep but have the skills, here’s a quick recipe from Diep Le Shaker. And to order go here

Sea Bass with Ginger?(cooking time 15- 20 minutes)?
