When you want it fast, flavourful and flashy…then dive right into Ho Chi Mama, a bustling modern Asian fusion joint in the centre of town.
Nestled in one of Melbourne’s coolest laneways, with outdoor tables spilling out onto the street, it is the perfect fusing of Melbourne and Saigon…well, with a bit of Japan, China, Sth east Asia thrown in…
Their menu is made to share, with copious quantities of urban cocktails on the side, so just head straight for the shared option which is super value and pumped out so fast, your head will spin – 2 small dishes, 2 larger dishes and a side for $65 for 2.
I can vouch for the Hanoi spring rolls, the crunchy tempura prawns, Japanese salmon ceviche, crispy chicken bao, roast duck wonton, grilled pork belly and soft shell crab noodle salad. It’s all fresh, fun and flavoursome.
Great spot for Friday night catch ups or pre theatre chow down.
Ho Chi Mama for me!
