How was it?
Whenever D* or I suggest going to Canley Heights for lunch, we mean 'let's go to Gia Hoi Vietnamese restaurant for their famous/special noodle soup - bun bo hue'.
Iced Coffee $3.00
Nothing beats the Vietnamese version of iced coffee, where 1/4 of the glass is filled with condensed milk, making it very sweet!
Bun Bo Hue Dac Biet $10.00
Special Pork & Beef with Rice Vermicelli Soup (Hot & Spicy)
Mmm... Hot & Spicy
Bun bo hue is so perfect for the winter months. It's a whole lot of comfort in one huge bowl. The servings are massive, and we probably could have shared one and still had leftovers! I love this soup because not only is it very flavoursome and chilli, but it doesn't feel too heavy in the stomach afterwards.
The service here was typical of a Vietnamese diner - fast and efficient. We were chatting away for a couple of hours, without even realising it, until we started to get looks, and we thought we'd better leave! But it had been a couple of hours, so fair enough!
A cheap and cheerful eatery, that's worth travelling for (they've opened a new restaurant in the City - so much more convenient for all you city folk). I almost always get the bun bo hue noodles, but they also have many other great dishes on the menu. Definitely a popular eatery with the locals and definitely worth a try.
