Nha Trang, Taikoo Shing, Hong Kong

I have been to the Central branch many times now. You truly can’t miss it. It is on Wellington Street and there is always a long queue by 12.15pm. However, on this day we went to the Taikoo Branch. I didn’t even know they had one until ‘The Mother’ pointed it out. It was relatively empty when we went. From memory it was the Chinese New Year weekend and everyone were either away or still asleep!

‘The Mother’ really likes this place – he always gets the same thing! Beef pho – he claims that it is the best pho he had in Hong Kong. I beg to differ but then again he is more of a pho expert than I am. I have yet to take him to chom chom so he can’t really make a comparison just yet.

It was certainly a generous serving of beef pho – lots of noodles, and beef. The soup had lot of flavours which was nice.

He was so hungry that he decided to get the banh mi. I’ve not had good banh mi for a while now. Unfortunately the banh mi was pretty ordinary, especially the bread! The filling wasn’t great either which was disappointing. No one does banh mi like Marrickville Banh Mi! HA!

I couldn’t go past braised pork belly in coconut juice. The dish took a while to come out. ‘The Mother’ was done eating his pho before this came out. However, it was definitely worth the wait! Tender, melt in your mouth pork belly – it was delicious and the coconut juice wasn’t over powering.

The limesoda was refreshing and great for a hot day!

‘The Mother’ absolutely loved the Vietnamese coffee.

Service was efficient and quick. It wasn’t busy so we sat there for a while. I know when they are busy, they tend to rush you and leave as soon as you have finished eating. I’ve had the pomelo salad and the skewers and I have to admit it is not bad. Lots of options for everone.

    Appreciate that they served the ca phe sua da with the filter. At least you know it’s been done properly!! That bread roll does look a bit sad. It needs the outer crust!

    That banh mi looks very sad & sick compared to the legitimate ones from Sydney! Soon you’ll be back & eating it once more!
