Travel to the streets of Vietnam without leaving Sunnybank at That Viet Place, a restaurant that seeks to emulate the flavours and soul of Vietnamese cooking.
Peruse the menu at the restaurant and you’ll find all the usual Vietnamese suspects from warming pho to fresh rice paper rolls and flavoursome vermicelli noodles. The restaurant’s traditional home style Vietnamese dishes are cooked and served by wife and husband team, Quang and Mai Dinh, who have been passionately working in the restaurant industry for the past 20 years. The couple spend hours in the kitchen perfecting their recipes. Mai is well known for her homemade fish sauce, which is based on a secret family recipe that’s more than 20 years old. The fish sauce is so popular, diners even buy the sauce to take back to Hong Kong and Vietnam. While Mai invents her own recipes based on what she can see and taste, her husband Quang uses logic and science to put together the dishes that he experiences. The result? An explosion of flavours that can’t be found anywhere else in Brisbane.
Tantalise your tastebuds with That Viet Place’s flavoursome crab and pork noodle soup, which arrives on your table heaped high with fresh Vietnamese mint and bean shoots. Or sink your teeth into the eatery’s freshly made rice paper rolls filled with fresh prawns, noodles, cucumber and mint.
And the must tries? Steaming special beef pho is an obvious favourite, comprising a large bowl of flavoursome broth, rare sliced beef, beef balls, tripe, beef tendon and rice noodles served with fresh bean sprouts, coriander, spring onions, basil and lemon. The pho broth is simmered for 12 to 24 hours with different herbs and spices. Need more noodles? The eatery gives free second refills, so those still hungry can get their fill.
