The pho restaurant, not the musical.
If you find yourself in the vicinity of Hurstville and in the mood for some Vietnamese tucker then I highly recommend Miss Saigon. It's your basic hole-in-the-wall eat'n'run kinda restaurant, very popular, usually busy and appears to have a legion of dedicated regulars, I guess I am one of them.
Love those pho fixins, I particularly like the chili sauce here, mixed with some hoi sin, oh yeah.
I've been here about ten times but I have only tried the pho, it's dang fine. The menu is packed with street food standards such as bun thit nuong but I'm always in the mood for pho when I get here.
BACK AGAIN IN JUNE 2012...
Bun Rieu - about $10. A lovely rich fishy broth with tomato. Tiny crab rissoles with a nice lemongrass kick and pork slices. A new favourite. Highly recommended.
Shawn's had man flu which is ten times worse than lady flu, and needed a noodle soup cure. Egg noodle soup with crispy chicken on the side. The chook and the broth were great. The noodles were cooked well but coated in something salty. Not a favourite rendition of this dish but for $10 we can't complain. Even though we just did.
We've got a real soft spot for this place, we've been dropping in for years and it's always pretty busy. A great place to sit outside and watch the world go by. For sweeties there's a Chinese bakery a few doors down that does great pandan cake. The bakery across the road gets a queue for their Vietnamese rolls.
Miss Saigon is at 185c Forest Road Hurstville.
