Tra Vinh Special Vermicelli Soup

Tra Vinh Special Vermicelli Sou

Franki Nguyen recommended Tra Vinh to me last year and I made the long trek up William Street passed my current favourite Vietnamese Noodle House, Phong Vinh to Brisbane Streer to Tra Vinh.

I had made the trek twice before, once to be scared off by the queue outside and the second time with a couple of work colleagues and we where lucky to get the last table. This time it was busy, but there where a few tables available.

The menu was very similar to Phong Vinh I was almost tempted to order the Spicy Beef and Pork Vermicelli Soup, that I had the day before for a direction comparison. Instead I ordered the Tra Vinh Special Vermicelli Soup. I am really enjoying noodle soups at the moment and this one did not disappoint. Great robust flavour.

So what made it the Tra Vinh Special, well it contained pork, beef, chicken, duck, fishball, prawn, squid and liver. For somebody who has just started eating meat on a regular basis after 10 years of avoiding it. It was a little overpowering, particularly the liver. Still I finished the bowl and enjoyed it.

So what do you get for $10, a large bowl of noodle soup, packed with 8 different meats and complimentary chinese tea.

Will I be back again, yes, will I order the Tra Vinh Special Vermicelli Soup again, probably not it was a meatlover’s delight with just too many flavours for me. There are many more interesting items on the menu for me to try.
