Hanoi Home Cooking menu set
At first, you may think Hanoi food is bland. However, there is an art to combining dishes and finding the balance in the meal in Hanoi cuisine to create the contrast and harmony in flavours.
Prawn and sweet potato fritters served with fresh herbs and dipping sauce
Who doesn’t love anything that is battered and fried? The orange colour is from the natural flesh of the sweet potato. This Hanoi delicacy can be found in the street stalls but we love it the way mum made it for the weekend lunch better. We like ours with a minimum of batter to glue everything together, and a tonne of sweet potato and Australian prawn.
Grilled Wagyu beef betel leaves
In Hanoi, this dish made with pork is another version people like to cook bún chả at home. Betel leaves have a fleeting fragrance when grilled, they blister and char beautifully, imparting their delicate perfume to the wagyu.
Pandan congee, lemongrass and turmeric chicken clay pot and soft boiled egg
Congee is light and comfort so Hanoians like to eat it for breakfast or supper. The homemade version is much more indulgent. We love how mum cooks the frog or eel porridge with the golden turmeric. Here in Melbourne, we can't find such ingredients so chicken is used to make the lovely clay-pot braise with fragrant spices. A flavour that will give your taste-buds a wake-up call.
Vegetarian menu set
Typical Vietnamese cooking is already characterised by the use of a vast array of fresh herbs and vegetables. We actually draw inspiration from the peasant food to create this menu. Enjoy the vibrant and tasty Asian flavours with many of Vietnamese dishes now with a vegetarian twist.
Vegetarian Pho with grilled tofu and mushroom
In Vietnam, pho stock is always meat-based. After a lot of trails, we decided to let the winter vegetables sing, adding just the right touch of spices and savoury notes to the delightful sweetness of veggies. Paired with fresh soft noodles, grilled mushroom and tofu, it’s a bowl of goodness and comfort.
Tracey's Sweet Potato, taro and turmeric croquettes
Another example of peasant food making its way back onto city plates. Reminiscent of French potato croquettes, these make a wonderful snack.
Saute mushroom sticky rice with mung bean and fried shallots
We love the rich and wonderful textures of this dish - the crunch of fry shallots against the smooth of mung bean and mushroom as well as the chewy sweet texture of the sticky rice.
