Northern Beaches venue, Harbord Diggers is fast becoming the mecca for dining with the recent opening of Vietnamese restaurant, Bau Truong.

Michael Thai and his family have run famed Vietnamese restaurant Bau Truong in Cabramatta since 1995. Serving a range of home-style dishes that are inspired by the flavours of the old Saigon markets, Bau Truong is delighted to now bring its delicious offering to Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Bau Truong has become synonymous with quality, refined Vietnamese dining, boasting flavourful mains, exotic entrees, elegant desserts and a selection of cultural beverages. The delicacies served at all Bau Truong restaurants are safely guarded recipes which stem from the fond childhood memories of Vietnamese migrant, and Michael’s mum – Bac Cang Nghieu.

For this latest venture, Bac Cang and Michael are bringing some of their classic dishes and traditional favourites to the shores of Freshwater. “The Harbord Diggers menu has been developed with the coastal location in mind,”explains Michael. “With a number of fresh Vietnamese salads and noodle specialities joining with traditional curries and seafood stir fry dishes.”

“Popular dishes from our Western Sydney restaurants will also be included such as our pork and
taro spring rolls, roast duck dumplings, beef and green mango salad, as well as our delectable
golden fried soft shell crab in tamarind glaze,” he adds.

With a focus on fresh flavours that stem from Bac Cang’s upbringing, Bau Truong at the Diggers also promises to cater for vegetarians and vegans as well as those with gluten intolerances. “Many of the dishes on our Diggers menu cater for those with dietary requirements, with our okras in garlic and chilli, taro curry and vegetarian Peking pancakes some of our favourites and many of our entrees and mains are designed to be shared,” says Michael. “In time for the approaching warm weather we also have a great selection of Vietnamese beverages such as our fruit shakes and whole coconut that are perfect to enjoy with a pho or noodle dish for a light lunch.”

Bau Truong follows in the footsteps of other successful restaurants, AcquaFresca by Pilu and Teddy Larkin’s Seafood and Steakhouse, as well as DD Collective Café which are all located at the Diggers.

“Despite all that has happened globally this year, we are delighted to welcome Bau Truong to the Diggers to bring the flavours and dishes of Vietnam to the Northern Beaches community,” says Mounties Group CEO Dale Hunt. (The Mounties Group not only own Harbord Diggers, they’re responsible for its incredible makeover.) “Bau Truong is a much loved restaurant and we know that Michael and Bac Cang will bring their traditional flavours with a twist to ensure our members and guests can get their own slice of Vietnam right here on the Beaches.”

Bau Truong is now open seven days a week for lunch and dinner at Harbord Diggers. To view
