Viet Hoa, Woodville Gardens

ADELAIDE | Viet Hoa was started by Sam Nguyen in the Adelaide suburb of Woodville Gardens several years ago, after he decided that an career in accountancy wasn’t for him. When Joel Baylon from Shobosho recommended I check the place out, I knew that I had to get on it.

Viet Hoa is Sam’s homage to his two favourite Vietnamese dishes – pho and com tam. The menu is limited, with Sam choosing to perfect a few variations of these two things. And his dedication to the craft pays off.

I went for a bowl of the pho dac biet. A fresh, light and vibrant bowl of noodles filled with beef fillet, flank, tripe, tendon, meat balls. No need for superlatives here, it’s just an excellent bowl of pho that hits all of the right notes. Along with a glass of iced Vietnamese coffee, I was all set for the afternoon ahead.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
