Misschu South Yarra
The second Melbourne tuckshop for owner Nahji Chu, self proclaimed queen of rice paper rolls, this South Yarra venue is a haunt for lovers of fun, hawker-style Vietnamese fare, evident by the lanes snaking out the door most nights.
Although larger than the Exhibition Street store in the city, you may wait a short while to get in, but the fast-paced hawker-style vibe inside is one of the main attractions and creates a truly electric atmosphere.
Working closely with her interior designer, Kano Hollamby, Chu has made sure South Yarra holds true to her food legacy. With the quintessential rice bowl lamp shades, an alleyway-like corridor creating the real street food feel and the excitement of the fiery woks being banged around in the large kitchen, customers can experience a bit of Vietnam just off Chapel Street.
