Coda, situated down a long Flinders Lane, is a great place for a nice date night, with dishes like O’Connor’s Black Angus strip loin served with spicy green peppercorn sauce and gribiche, Hà Ni-style fried rice paper rolls stuffed with truffle, or pork.
This one is past Chinatown, up the Spring St end of Little Bourke. The menu incorporates inspirations from all around the world, such as China’s delicate pork and prawn siu mai. One of the best foods in Annam is their fried ice cream.
While it’s not as traditional as some other restaurants on this list, it doesn’t mean it’s any less excellent. Uncle has a vast and delectable menu waiting to be sampled. You can mix and choose foods from the a la carte menu or put your faith in the venue and ask them to “feed me.” Wok-tossed zucchini, soft shell crab Bánh mi, pho ga, and steamed rice buns are just a few of the menu dishes worth trying.
