Restaurant: Miss Chu
Location: Regent Place, Lower level, 501 George Street, Sydney
Finally, after much anticipation we managed to finally pop by and try the trendy little tuck shop. Everything about this tuck shop is screaming of novelty, and it makes me all giddy with excitement.
What to eat on a cold and wet night that was preparing us for winter … Candice and I knew exactly what we were going to have – the beef and ox tail pho!
|Beef and Ox Tail Pho - $14|
Being all hopeful for a nice and hearty noodle soup we were only left with disappointment when it was only luke warm. However, the soup did indeed hold flavour of your average pho. I would have loved the beef slices to be more towards the thinly sliced – but I know if I want pho, I will need to go to your more traditional pho joints.
|Traditional seafood hanoi spring rolls - $6|
There was no way we were passing off some fried goodness so we ordered the spring rolls, and boy, were they good! Yes, size could be slightly bigger but mmm~ hello delicious crunch!! The fish sauce comes in a small cute plastic container that you can just pour out rather than “double dipping”. Not that you will need to double dip.
|Roast Pork and pate rice paper rolls - $10|
Feli and her beau ordered the roast pork rice paper roll, it was beautiful - the mint wrapped within the roll gave a nice and refreshed feeling along with the mouth watering pork.
|Chicken hanoi curry with rice vermicelli and herbs - $15|
The curry was so flavourful with very tender chicken.
|Atlantic Salmon with XO sauce with fish sauce (gluten free) - $14|
The salmon marinade was simply divine! The salmon was succulent and it always makes us happy when there is enough sauce for us to thoroughly enjoy it with the vermicelli. This could be served with either warm rice vermicelli salad or steamed rice and greens.
If it wasn’t because of Feli telling us about how well her choices were, I may not consider popping in again to try Miss Chu. However, I think I am willing to give them another visit, but maybe not just yet – as there are too many things on my list right now!!
Until next time,
