Best Known For
Whole crispy barramundi, with sweet chilli sauce, Mekong salad and lemon.
Born out of the wok-tossed flames of Vietnam and introduced to the bustling heart of urban Melbourne, Straight Outta Saigon on Russell Street serves up Eastern flavours to the hungry CBD crew. Immerse yourself in 90s hip-hop mixtapes, swim in the offerings of tropical elixirs and bask in the taste of street-side fare without the frills, in moody surrounds of pink neon signage, booth seating and a wall mural of a Vietnamese woman. Start with scallops baked in the shell, topped with creamy bechamel and cheese, served with a spring onion roll; before delving into a rich Vietnamese chicken coconut curry, vegetables and jasmine rice. Perhaps irresistible crispy pork belly tempts, with green apple, tomato, onion, coriander, red capsicum and nuoc mam sauce; washed down with a Rising Sun cocktail.
