Melbourne is truly a great place for foodies. As it’s known as the City of Immigrants, there is a huge range cuisines from all around the world. Today, I would like to introduce one of the famous traditional Vietnamese restaurants in Melbourne – Pho Dzung Tan Dinh.
Today I ordered the ‘Hue Traditional Vietnamese Style Spicy Noodle Soup’.
And Salt ordered Special Beef Combination Noodle Soup.
According to the staff, the soup is cooked for 4-5 hours everyday, which is probably the reason why this restaurant is so famous. Not many places these days spend so much time and effort in preparing soup for customers so it’s very exciting for me when I come across restaurants such as this one.
The soup is very flavoursome and tastes even better by adding basil, bean sprouts, lemon and chilli.
If you like coffee, you should also try the Vietnamese Coffee here. It’s basically a shot of very strong coffee mixed with condense milk. It tastes quite different from normal western coffee – it’s much more sweeter because of the condense milk but also very strong in coffee flavour. I actually quite enjoyed it.
There are 2 chains of this restaurant – the first and main restaurant is located at 208 Victoria st., Richmond. The other is located in the CBD, on corner of Russel st. and Lonsdale st. Although many people have told me that the food at the main restaurant tastes better than the CBD restaurant, I personally think as long as it’s Pho Dzung Tan Dinh, the food is always good. If you are in Melbourne, this restaurant is really worth a visit.
