MELBOURNE | SenStorm Noodle Bar & Grill is a Vietnamese restaurant on Smith Street located in the space that was previously home to Po Boy Quarter. Owners Ryan Pham (head chef) and Quyen Nghiem (front of house) focus is on traditional Vietnamese dishes presented in a modern, approachable way.

The space is bright and welcoming, with lots of soft colours, and light timber furnishings, seats, and tables. Cartoon-style Vietnamese artwork dotted around the venue adds to the warm feeling of the venue.

Noodles and grilled items are a key part of the offering at Sen Storm. There’s a diverse range of noodles from across Vietnam, and a variety of dishes cooked over charcoal.

Nem lụi, a dish that originated in Hue, is a highlight. Two grilled pork mince skewers are served atop a bed of pressed vermicelli noodles with nước mam dipping sauce. It’s a simple dish, and the skewers are beautifully charred. The xúc xích, or spicy sausage, is also very tasty, and served simply with pickles.

From the noodle section of the menu, the bánh canh chả cua, another Hue dish, really stands out. It’s a bowl of thick wheat noodles, similar to udon, with crab balls and prawns in a complex, flavour packed seafood broth. A less intense broth can be found with the Hanoi-style combo noodle – vermicelli with shredded chicken, egg, dried mushroom, daikon, pork loaf, and green onion in a fragrant chicken broth. Also tasty is the southern Vietnamese noodle dish bún bò nam bộ, a flavoursome combination of vermicelli with stir fried beef, mixed herbs, lettuce, peanuts, fried onion, and nước mam.

For drinks it’s a decent selection of local wine and beer, and an assortment of Vietnamese inspired cocktails full of tropical, fragrant ingredients.

Sen Storm is a welcome addition to Smith Street. Yes you can get fantastic Vietnamese food for cheaper in Melbourne’s Vietnamese areas, but in a Collingwood context the food is well priced and most importantly, tastes great.
