Super fresh Vietnemese fare on Chapel
While Chapel St in Prahran offers a huge variety of options for dining, Kin serves up fresh Vietnamese fare without breaking the bank.

As you'd expect, Kin, meaning family, is a tribute to the custom of families cooking and eating together.

In this tradition, the food served up at Kin is authentic Vietnamese cooking, the menu isn't overwhelming and doesn't try to be too clever for its own good. It's just simple Vietnamese food done traditionally in a welcoming atmosphere.

If you are a pho lover, you're in luck! Kin serves a great one that is really filling for around $13. If you're unfamiliar with pho, it's a traditional Vietnamese broth soup made with rice noodles, and your choice of either chicken, beef or both, been shoots, fresh basil, chilli and lemon served up on the side to create the taste you want.

If you're wanting to just give it a try before you commit to a whole bowl, or if you're dining with children, they also serve a pho cup; a smaller sized portion of the soup that's just as tasty.

And if pho isn't your thing, you'll find plenty of other fresh items to make your mouth water, including rice paper rolls, salads such as the chilli prawn papaya salad, vermicelli bowls and a range of char-grilled favourites including the char-grilled pork skewers.

And if the fresh food isn't enough to drawn you in, they also have one of the best happy hours on Chapel everyday from 4-7pm with $4 wines, sparkling, vodka and ninnies, as well as a bucket of 4 bottles of Perone for $20.

Pop in for happy hour and stay for the food, it's a great fresh meal you'll enjoy.
