First, it comes with two deep-fried spring rolls despite it being a noodle dish. Even more amazing, some places pack their spring rolls with the rice noodles too and a whole melange of prawn and herbs – Thai basil and coriander, mostly. Secondly, I love how fish sauce changes the flavour profile of a dish so drastically, from zilch to fab. You get this burst of savouriness and amazing zing of umami from the drizzles of sauce you add to the dish alongside the deep-fried shallots – both out of frame. Lastly, you get an illusion of healthy eating because all you get are clean flavours as well as the generous addition of herbs and vegetables (both fresh and pickled), and lean protein from the grilled beef tenderloin which is typically studded with roasted ground nuts for texture. Ok, that's all.
