EAT | VIET HOA (Northbridge, WA)

You're starting on Monday, so order all the things

I'm a firm believer in starting on a Monday.  Monday not only marks the mourning of the weekend, but it brings that pretty sparkle of hope to start anew with a whoooooole juicy week do things right. I have uttered those words … I'll start [enter new obsession] on Monday … so many times even I roll my eyes.

The latest obsession is to tighten up on dining out.  Work gets cray, the social calendar plumps up and the fridge grows bare, evenings at bikram turn into nights at Brika, Monday comes round and we've been out every night.  It gets exhausting and there is only so much kombucha a girl can drink before she needs to slow down a little on the degustations.  I'm not saying there will be a gastronomic drought or that you won't find new blog posts each week, just going to spend a little more time in.  My aim for the new year to get back into the kitchen, find my inner yogi and spend more time enjoying the sunshine (and not in a beer garden somewhere enjoying pizza, okay well that's a lie).

So with this on my conscience, as anyone in my position would do, I crammed in as many eating adventures as my digestive system could handle before Monday rolled in.  It had been a long time between stuffed chicken wings so we thought Viet Hoa in Northbridge would be perfect for lunch.  We ordered all the things (well except the stuff chicken wings) cos I'm starting on Monday.

 Sang chow bow chicken - I love adding mountains of chilli and then eating half the chicken before wrapping it up it like a little lettuce sandwich.

 Bun bo xao - braised beef with lemon grass and rice vermicelli.  I found the rice noodles a little too thick for my liking. The crispy roast duck with peking sauce ain't got nothing on Good Fortune Duck House across the road.   Considering we paid only $53 for the whole meal, you can't     really complain.  I love this about Viet Hoa - if you want cheap and cheerful it always delivers.

 Com ga hai nam - Hai Nam chicken rice is a pretty healthy dish if you want something simple and light. The best chicken rice I have ever eaten aside from my Nanna's cooking is  Tian Tian Chicken Rice  in Singapore.  If you are looking for chicken rice in Perth, then  Tak Chee  on William Street is the answer, followed far behind by  Singapore Chicken Rice  at the Coventry Markets.
