Last month, I had the pleasure of trying the all-new 123 DZO as their guest! 123 DZO is a Vietnamese restaurant and bar, serving up authentic Vietnamese tapas and dishes, along with a great selection of cocktails, beers and wines. The decor of the place is so beautiful and they offer daily specials like ladies’ night sangrias on Thursdays and beer tower specials on Saturdays. They are located in Laval, in the part South-East of the 440 and the 15, on Boulevard le Carrefour. Here are the dishes we had the pleasure of trying:

  • Pork imperial rolls
  • papaya and dried beef salad
  • Mango salad
  • Clams in a lemongrass and basil broth
  • Grilled calamari with a satay sauce
  • Shaking beef with red rice
  • Chef’s choice brochettes: grilled chicken, beef & pork wrapped in betel leaves and grilled shrimps
  • Fried banana with coconut cream
  • Ice cream with coconut cream
  • Saigon : Jim Beam bourbon, passionfruit syrup, lime, iced tea, tamarin juice
  • Ladies’ night sangria

Overall, we enjoyed an amazing dinner, full of delicious Vietnamese tapas. Everything was very good but my favorites were the starters, which I thought were all executed on point. With that said, my favorite dishes of the night were: pork imperial rolls, papaya and dried beef salad, grilled shrimps. I loved everything about these three dishes: taste, flavours, textures and presentation. If you go, I highly recommend trying these three!

The rest of the dishes and cocktails were great too and I really liked the Ladies’ night sangria with lychee liquor in it. The presentation of all the dishes was very beautifully done and on point too. If you’re looking for a nicer Vietnamese dining experience with great food and cocktails, I highly recommend 123 DZO.
