The House of Hoi An is based in Windsor, one of the most competitive markets for Vietnamese restaurants in Melbourne, but even among this maelstrom, they manage to stand head and shoulders above their neighbours. Their chef is the secret of their success: Trinh Diem Vy is one of the best known restaurateurs in Vietnam – where they know a thing or two about Vietnamese food – and she has been dedicated to spreading the gospel beyond Southeast Asia. Melbourne is the location for her first foray outside of the old town, and we cannot recommend the House of Hoi An on Green Street in Windsor highly enough: book a table now and head down without delay.
Melbourne is one of the premier places enjoy Asian food outside of Asia, and out in the east of the city centre, it is the cuisine of Vietnam that rules the roost. Not all Vietnamese restaurants in Melbourne were created equal, mind, and when locals find one that is particularly special, they aren’t always too forthcoming in sharing it with the rest of the world. No problems for us though: we’re more than happy to shout from the rooftops about the wondrous delicacies on offer at The House of Hoi An on Green Street in the heart of Windsor. They’re certainly something to write home about: so let us explain why you should book your table there post haste.
The Vietnamese food in Melbourne is often just the same dishes repeated ad nauseum, but at The House of Hoi An in Windsor, they prefer a slightly different approach. Ms. Vy, the chef, eschews the pho and noodle staples and instead specialises in street food from her home city, Hoi An, such as roll your own rice paper dumplings – barbecued pork, shrimp mousse or vegetarian fillings – and home-cooked delicacies like squid stuffed with pork, fish in caramel sauce and rockling with dill. The menu is short but sweet, and what they do, they do well. Head on over to Green Street to find out just how good Vietnamese food in Melbourne can be at The House of Hoi An. Book a table now.
