522 Riversdale Road,Camberwell VIC
Just a few quick steps away from Camberwell Junction sits Checkered Hill Café, a cosy establishment with a Vietnamese inspired menu. Though tucked into the hustle and bustle on Riversdale Road, Checkered Hill Café provides a naturalistic interior to break through city surrounds with strings of vines dropping from the ceiling to creep down beside tables and white walls lined with a perimeter of vibrant green grass. Cosy up for a meal inside with a Segafredo Coffee in hand and choose between Mod Oz breakfasts like smashed peas with goat’s feta on sourdough toast or Vietnamese street food with a twist, crafted from inherited family recipes. Snack on rice paper rolls filled with grilled lemongrass chicken before warming up with a steaming bowl of thin sliced beef Pho with spring onions.
Grilled chicken with vermicelli. Vietnamese beef noodle soup.
