So, the best kept pho secret? Well, its in footscray- an area of Melbourne that peeps are realising more an more te sheer scale of amazingness when it comes to international cusine.
Traditionalist will argue that Victoria St Abbotsford/Richmond is the spot for Vietnamese cuisine. But being a westie born & breed, I have to say Footscrazy is the way to go. Not so much because I’m a local but for the fact that along the infamous Barkly street, you’ll find some of this city’s best Vietnamese, Indian, Colombian, Ethiopian & Chinese restaurants – all ridiculously affordable.
So, back to the best kept pho secret: Hung Vuong Saigon. Or, as my boyfriend likes to call it, the chicken in the cow.
It’s probably not so much of a secret anymore but still I’m sure there’s a whole gang of Melbournians curious to start their pho experience & at a loss where to begin.
So definitely start here.
