Named after a humble mother who’s love of authentic Vietnamese cuisine has been brought to Melbourne Cô Hạnh delights Melbournians with home style Vietnamese cuisine made from traditional family recipes passed on and serving the way it is meant to ay home.
We loved visiting Cô Hạnh to sample their Vietnamese BBQ offering – a unique experience that very few eateries in Melbourne offer. Cô Hạnh’s take on the Vietnamese BBQ was absolutely stunning. The skewers were of particular note – perfectly marinaded and bursting with flavour – Think spicy satay chicken skewers, sweet soy marinaded pork belly skewers, Nem Nuong seasoned sweet caramelised pork and soy and lemongrass marinaded beef skewers.
For the main affair, the seafood banquet is our top pick. Served with traditional sides such as fine woven vermicelli, pickled veggies and apple slaw, expect wonderfully fresh seafood. The scallops and the sugar cane shrimp were especially good.
Dessert time continues to please at Cô Hạnh. We loved the battered banana fritters which had been fried to golden perfection and was served with coconut ice cream, pandan wafer and palm caramel. Just yum!
