Silk is ostensibly serving Vietnamese cuisine. While I can't speak to the authenticity, the food is outstanding, and well beyond the typical pho noodle selection. We started with crispy vegetable rolls which were a deep fried version of the fairly typical spring rolls in rice paper. The ingredients were fresh and flavorful, and the dipping sauce was some variant of soy and fish sauce, but quite tasty. That was followed by the banana blossom salad containing a mixture of greenery, jimica, cabbage, grapefruit, and the aforementioned banana blossoms all served up on a banana leaf. The flavors were distinctive and refreshing. The whole thing was light and unique. The salad was followed by a clay pot ginger chicken quite savory with a little heat and lots of fresh ginger, mushrooms, and haricots vert. Again the seasoning and flavors were just different to make an ordinary dish interesting. Everything was washed down with lots excellent lotus tea. If you've saved room for dessert, they make creme brulee and a bread pudding in house, along with a selection of pastries from a local bakery. We'd recommend the banana bread pudding loaded with coconut and served in a sweetened tapioca sauce, and course sprinkled with peanuts. It was an excellent finish to a wonderful meal. No complaints about the service or ambiance. Definitely worth a visit. We'll be dining at Silk again.
