Who doesn’t love fresh Vietnamese hawker style food? Just biting into a crispy spring roll or succulent steamed dumpling takes you right to the streets of Ho Chi Minh.
Thanks to misschu a.k.a. the queen of rice paper rolls, there’s no need to board a plane anymore, her little eclectic kitchen and restaurant has finally popped up in Melbourne’s CBD.
misschu (real name Nahji Chu), formally a Vietnamese refugee opened her Sydney café six years ago has since gained cult-like status for her delightfully perfect rice paper rolls, Peking duck pancakes and coconut crush drinks (with an optional dash of vodka post 5pm).
The hip cafe speedily dishes up a delish selection of Vietnamese food with a slight twist like sashimi tuna, and roast duck and banana rice paper rolls; English spinach and tofu, and scallop and prawn steamed dumplings; traditional pork Hanoi deep friend spring rolls; and warm vermicelli salads.
So whether you pull a crate up out the front, dine alongside her enlarged entry Visa replica mural indoors; or simply take-away (electric bike deliveries soon) you’ll be forayed to a far away land courtesy of rice paper royalty.
