La Petite Camille, Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine

People have constant craving to explore new flavours and dishes from different parts of the world. I always enjoy the opportunity to experience culture, diversity and ethnic differences through their foods and practices. It’s really fun and enlightening for locals to try a traditional by going to different restaurants and experiencing the diverse flavors, spices and dishes.
A visit to a classic Vietnamese restaurant named La Petite Camille in Greenbelt 5 Ayala Center, Makati is an awesome experience.
Vietnamese cuisine encompasses the indigenous food and beverages of Vietnam heavily influenced by French cuisine, due to its previous status as a French protectorate, as well as Chinese, Indian, and Thai culinary influences.

Regular ingredients include fish sauce, shrimp paste, soy sauce, curry, rice, fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables.  Vietnamese recipes commonly use lemongrass, mint, long coriander, & Thai basil leaves.
Vietnamese cuisine is ranked as one of the healthiest in the world. The Vietnamese have a strong vegetarian tradition influenced by the deep seated Buddhist values of its people. Most common meats used in Vietnamese cuisine are fish, chicken, pork, beef, and a variety of seafood. Traditional Vietnamese cooking is greatly lauded for its fresh ingredients, minimal use of oil, and reliance on fresh herbs and vegetables.

La Petite Camille in Greenbelt 5 Ayala Center, Makati was opened last December 17, 2012 by the same group that has brought in concepts such as Super Bowl of China and Yomenya Goemon Japanese Spaghetti House in partnership with Mama Fong, owner of La Petite Camille in Millbrae, California.

We have tried the specialties of La Petite Camille like Grilled Pork Imperial Rolls, Beef Look Luck, Summer Rolls Combination, Fresh Vegetarian Rolls, Green Papaya Salad Prawns, Pomelo Salad, Virmecelli, Beef Stew Noodle Soup, Camille BBQ Chicken, Saigon Style BBQ Pork Chop, Fan Fried RC Noodles Prawns, Prawn Fried Rice and Chicken Fried Rice.

Mama Fong’s own personal family recipes are used for the marination of the different dishes as well as the preparation of the variety of sauces.
As such, only La Petite Camille carries these Vietnamese flavour combinations and variations due to the personal touch that Mama Fong has infused each dish with.
I always crave for dessert! We have Pandan and Yellow Mung Beam, Vietnamese Jell-O and Deep Fry Ice Cream! 

Had a wonderful day at the Authentic Vietnamese Restaurant, La Petite Camille. Thanks to Mr. Roberto Vallar, Marketing Manager of East Orient Fine Dining Corporation for having lunch and chat with him.

Enjoy the wonderful world of La Petite Camille!
