HOT: Mama’s Buoi, G25 Postal Lane, Melbourne’s GPO, Melbourne

Mama’s Buoi is a contemporary Vietnamese restaurant and bar tucked away in GPO Lane beside Melbourne’s GPO/H&M.  The venue is inspired by Mama Hoang, the mother of one of the owners and an excellent home cook. It takes traditional Vietnamese cuisine and gives it a modern, Melbourne twist in keeping with its laneway setting. For […]

HOT: Qua’n 888, Shop 24, Little Saigon Shopping Centre, Ryan and Leeds Streets, Footscray

Thanks to a tip-off from the on-the-pulse Footscray Food Blog I dropped into Qua’n 888 on my last grocery shop to Footscray’s Little Saigon market.

HOT: Xuan Banh Cuon, 232 Hampshire Rd, Sunshine

Eating out in multicultural Sunshine can be a little overwhelming if you don’t have a recommendation.

Add my voice to their chorus because the banh cuon […]

In fact, I think some of their dishes are better than their original meaty versions. Bo De Trai is a restaurant which is linked to the […]

HOT: Rice Paper Scissors, 19 Liverpool St, Melbourne

Rice Paper Scissors is a small South East Asian hawker-style eatery tucked away in Liverpool Street. I call it ‘Longrain-lite’, due in part to the postage stamp sized venue and its menu of Vietnamese and Thai street food. We visited Rice Paper Scissors early on a Saturday night, when it was rammed to the rafters and […]

HOT: HM Quan, 5/68-82 Hopkins Street, Footscray

There are loads of Vietnamese eateries on Hopkins Street Footscray yet HM Quan still manages to stands out. Mainly because of its crazy, Hawaiian-tiki inspired decor and toddler-sized furniture (for kids and adults alike). Step inside and you’ll be bombarded by a party of fake grass, indoor straw huts, tiny knick-knacks placed on every bit […]
