Co Hanh (Invited)

Co Hanh is named based on a mother who loves Vietnamese food. It's a small restaurant with three types of seatings; bar, bbq and Vietnamese casual dining. The owner, Ray arranged a BBQ set meal for me and family on Anzac day. Interior wise, it's bright and modern with young neon vibe. Even the exhaust fan is red and located up high so it won't disturb the view.

They have various drinks options, innovative but with the same tropical vibe just like in Vietnam. Avocado Smoothie ($6.5) and Coco Cooler ($9) - coconut cream, strawberries, mango juice, Thai basil syrup, shaken with mint leaves, coconut water. Avocado smoothy is one of my favourite but it's pretty heavy so the small serving is actually perfect.

I ordered Chicken Pho ($15) for my kid to start with, it was delicious with generous meat in it. The broth was rich but not oily. They also added CΓ΄ HαΊ‘nh Signature Wings ($13.9) cause the rest of the meal takes quite some time to prepared. I wish the chicken is a bit crunchier but the sticky slightly spice glazed is fresh and has a soury taste that's different than most.

1/2 Seafood Banquet 1/2 Meat Banquet ($38/pp, min 2ppl) accompanied by pickled veggies, fine woven vermicelli, lettuce, mint, rice paper & dipping sauce. We can picked 3 seafood and 3 meat from the menu, I originally picked Beef Scotch Fillet, Soy & Lemongrass Pork Belly and Lamb Chops for meat and Calamari, Tiger Prawn and Scallops for seafood. But I don't know what's wrong, when it came to my table, I got Nem Nuonh, Pork Belly, Beef Scotch Fillet, Fish Cakes, Prawn and Scallops. Basically, they change two item.

Anyway the presentations were beautiful, come with abundant garnishes. The portions was beyond generous. It's a unique different way of eating a BBQ that I have never experience before, we have the rice paper dip and roll in hot water before eating, which is a fun way to do as a group. Creating different rice paper roll also fun for my kid.

Honestly, BBQing seafood is fun and different. Fresh BBQ prawns and scallop were more delicious than I expected it to be, even the juicy sweet fish cake taste so good. I also love the tasty pork belly and sweet pork nem nuonh but the beef fall short from others. It's a bit dry and tough, maybe a higher quality meat would served better in the set.

Pandan Creme Brulee ($12.9) with coconut jelly, torched caramelised sugar. Melted in your mouth moment appears after just one bite of these soft creme brulee. Prominent pandan flavour but not too sweet, I do want a lil bit of fresh fruit with it for acidity.
