I’ve been to Tramsheds a number of times since it opened. The variety of cuisines is good, parking is easy, and you can finish off any visit with a gelato from Messina!
I’ve been to Mama’s Buoi in Crows Nest, and enjoyed it. The menu at the three Sydney venues differs slightly and I liked the look of some of the Tramshed dishes (the Small People are also getting into Vietnamese), so off we went.
As you’d expect with Vietnamese there are lots of herbs, lots of vegetables, a bit of spice. Service was efficient if not particularly friendly. The pricing is also very reasonable for the serving size. My picks were the duck pancakes, the salt and pepper squid, and the fragrant beef with the greens.
