Sunday evening seems to have settled in as my most likely time of the week to peruse takeaway menus. Following my latest contemplation I decided it was time to give local Vietnamese place Seasons a go.
This Seasons is not to be confused with Seasons on Broughton Street, the Scandinavian-influenced tasting menu restaurant. Or the Seasons in Melrose, of course. Popular name.
Anyhoo, a brief look at the Seasons menu showed that it covered many of the familiar Vietnamese bases. Accordingly I kept things simple with fresh spring rolls to start then beef pho to follow. With delivery charge it came to £16.40.
The delivery man arrived a little ahead of schedule and was full of effusive charm. I was soon tucking in to both dishes.
The spring rolls were really good packing lots of fresh crunch. They were a very pleasing start.
The pho came in two parts with the piping hot broth kept separate from the noodles, meat and whatnot during delivery. With the soup poured over I commenced splashing things all over my shirt.
The stuff I managed to actually get in my mouth was very good. The broth was light and fragrant, the meat flavourful, with the noodles giving things good substance. It was a satisfying eat.
So overall, Seasons did a good job of addressing Sunday evening hunger. I’d be happy to order from them again next time Vietnamese is what I’m craving. I’d recommend you do likewise.
