Morning Glory Express by Taste of Vietnam Overview

For a taste of authentic Vietnamese street food without leaving Windsor, visit Morning Glory Express by Taste of Vietnam on Green Street. Popping with bright colours from wire caged globes to tiles and funky furnishings, Morning Glory Express is buzzing with the conversations of friendly locals and aromatic with the scent of fragrant dishes. Fresh gourmet ingredients are sourced from nearby as well as spices imported directly from Vietnam to create a menu of plates sure to make the mouth water. Kick start the journey with crab meat fried wontons, before delving into favourites such as crispy Hoi An pancakes with pork, shrimp and bean sprouts, barbeque chicken skewers with lime leaves, or stuffed squid with pork. For a sweet finish, be tempted by jack fruit fritters and banana ice cream.

A few words from Morning Glory Express by Taste of Vietnam

"It's my destiny," says Trinh Diem Vy, when I ask her why she opened her first restaurant outside of Vietnam in lucky, lucky Melbourne. Vy (say 'Vee') is from Hoi An, the graceful, coastal, central Vietnamese town where food is an obsession. In Hoi An, she's a restaurant rock star with four eateries, a cooking school and a boutique hotel.

There were three big lures to Melbourne: excellent produce, her business partner is here and, most powerful of all, her daughter came to Melbourne to study.

I'm grateful for the enticements because House of Hoi An is not your typical pho joint. It's a brilliant addition to our Vietnamese dining scene, offering a fresh, impassioned take on familiar south-east Asian flavours in a colourful factory space, just off Chapel Street.

Key snacks include DIY rolls, either fragrant prawn mince wrapped around sugarcane skewers or juicy barbecued pork, served with dry but quick-softening rice paper, noodles and greens.

The ooh-I-wish-I-ordered-that dish is the prawn curry, sauteed with coconut cream then piled into a young steamed coconut. The curry is gentle and enticing; scraping the soft, sweet flesh from the coconut takes it to the next level.

Fish in caramel sauce is subtle but winning: palm sugar, fish sauce and pepper are cooked to a caramel, then thinned to a braising liquid for mackerel fillets, which are coaxed to sweet surrender. I can't write about it without drooling.

    Enter Ms Vy’s House of Hoi An for a taste of Central Vietnam. Is it a blink and you’ll miss it hole-in-the-wall? Definitely not. At night, the psychedelic glow, lights up Windsor. The vibrant mural of a river scene, with glowing lanterns, lures diners inside. On a freezing winter’s night, it radiates warmth. Don’t make me go back outside!....
