Tan Viet Noodle House, Cabramatta

Cabramatta is not a place I go very often, its far and well.. its FAR! However, it has been a very long time since my last visit (a good 5 years?) and thought it was time for a revisit! I have been craving for good crispy chicken with tomato rice and my parents who are frequent visitors suggested Tan Viet – first time that they have ever suggested somewhere to eat!

Tan Viet is a popular restaurant in Cabramatta, you can’t miss it as I was told there is always a long queue outside! Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait for long, the turnover is quite quick and we were seated immediately.

Pretty much everyone on the table was here for one thing, the crispy chicken! Some wanted it with noodles, where as I wanted it with tomato rice. It was served with a bowl of soup and a side of pickled vegetables. The crispy chicken was indeed crispy and the flesh juicy, tender and absolutely wonderful! Definitely satisfied my cravings and secretly I would have happily eaten another serving – the chicken that is, not with the tomato fried rice!

My brother, F, ordered it with dried noodles which were served with a bowl of soup on the side.

My sis-in-law, O, prefers noodles with soup but she also had it with crispy chicken.

Dad ordered the deluxe pork chop rice, (which I forgot to take a photo!). He thought it was ok, the pork chop was not that great, it was a little hard and said that the crispy chicken was infinitely better.

Service minimal, turnover quite quick so don’t be put off by the queue. It does move relatively quickly and the restaurant is quite big.

After lunch, we had a stroll around Cabramatta and I couldn’t help but get myself an avocado and durian juice – it was absolutely fantastic! I know some of you may not like durian but I am a HUGE FAN and the juice totally hit the spot! Exactly what I needed after all that fried goodness!

Of course we got some delicious durian – hello delicious!

I am definitely keen to hit Cabramatta again, this time for some pho!

    I think the chicken is pretty amazeballs and it’s a very good quick fix. Love eating egg noodles dry. There’s one now opened at Canley Heights on Canley Vale Road 🙂

    Yes Cabra is far from the city but it isn’t as far or as dirty as some places in Vietnam can be and as for travel expenses will only cost you a return trip on the train or in the car, best to visit when you have an entire day to explore this wonderful little town.
