Bun Bun Bakery, Springvale

I’m a Nhu Lan kinda gal when it comes to banh mi thit so when someone says to check out a Vietnamese pork roll joint, my mind instantly goes into using Nhu Lan as the standard. Bun Bun Bakery wasn’t too busy when we got there. Like every other Banh Mi joint, it doesn’t have seating and it’s a quick in and out kinda place.

Pho Village – Brandon Park Shopping Centre, Wheelers Hill

It’s lunchtime at work and we ventured out to Brandon Park Shopping Centre for a bit of Vietnamese food. Well, specifically pho for Ms Curly Fries and for me, Bun Bo Hue (BBH). We headed to Pho Village in the Brandon Park food court and yep, it’s crowded but the service was real quick. For only $11 you can get a steaming bowl of pho. Unfortunately I didn’t get a photo of the pho but it was pretty good pho. It was light, had all the right flavours and it was enough to me safe and warm. Definitely a recommended dish.

I went for the BBH and boy was that a mistake. It didn’t have the right flavours and it tasted very diluted which was a shame.

Bun Bo Hue – $11

If you’re in the area and want a pretty decent pho from a food court, I’d definitely recommend Pho Village. However, just keep in mind to just get the pho and steer clear of the BBH.

Verdict: 🍷🍷🍷
Food: 🍷🍷🍷
Service: 🍷🍷🍷
Value: 🍷🍷🍷

Minh Minh Saigon Soul, Richmond

Richmond is known for all their restaurants and good food and on the main street sits Minh Minh Saigon Soul. Opened for such a long time and having undergone a new facelift. The decorations were oh so cute and the mural on the wall was beautiful. However, the tables and chairs didn’t really suit the restaurant but that’s another story.

Che Vietnamese Desserts, Melbourne

Having grown up in a Vietnamese family, I am very familiar with the words che, the vietnamese desserts that can be served hot or cold, vibrant and full of flavour. So having heard that Che Desserts have opened up late into the night, I had to drag one of the triplet babies along to check it out. Stepping inside, the decor was bright and vibrant and just makes you smile. On the walls are different parts of Vietnam with people on motorbikes and of course, its quite instagram worthy.

Gingerboy, Melbourne

The traveling couple had given us a voucher to Gingerboy (been totes wanting to try this out) for our engagement and we decided to cash it in because, well, it was going to expire soon. I’ve been wanting to check this place out for a while and now there wasn’t an excuse as to why we couldn’t go. Gingerboy, as expected is located in a lane way and when you step inside, you’re greeted by smiling faces. We got to our table, got our game face on and waited for the food to come out.

Thuan Phat, St Albans

St Albans, my local eats and the go-to place when I’m craving for something mum can’t make and my wallet is crying and waiting for payday. My usual eatery was Quang Vinh but that’s gone downhill so Miss Pandan suggested Thuan Phat and it’s always chock-a-block with locals which is always a good sign. Luckily for us, we got there at 6PM on a weeknight and there were plenty of tables to spare.
