Pho Tai and Spicy Beef and Pork Soup
Tucked in Field Street off Gouger Street, Thanh Thanh Vietnamese Restaurant is a good place to sample Vietnamese cuisine, one of the most notable dishes being Pho. Pho is a traditional Vietnamese noodle soup in which rice noodles are served in a broth with meat. The version typically associated with Pho is known as Pho Tai, consisting of beef stock with raw pieces of beef, the heat from the broth cooking the meat.

All the individual dishes can be ordered as either a small or large serving. Contrary to what it suggests, the small serving size is sufficient enough for most people. The Pho Tai served here had tender pieces of beef with noodles that was cooked to the right degree of softness with a delicious beef broth. Sticking with tradition, it comes served with bean sprouts and herbs that you can add to the Pho before eating it.

If you like something a bit spicier, the Spicy Beef and Pork Soup could be the dish for you. Both the beef and pork were cooked to perfection and the spicy soup had a delectable spicy taste with a hint of sourness which helped to bring out the flavour of the dish. Like the Pho Tai, the vermicelli noodles used in the dish were cooked just right.

Thanh Thanh also offers a good range of rice dishes, one of them being Crispy Pork Chop Rice. The pork chop was fried to golden brown and the crisp coating contrasted nicely with the tender meat. The spices in the coating also helped to round out the flavour of the meat. It comes served with a small serving of pickles, cucumber and a slightly spicy sauce that can be spooned over the pork chops to give it an extra element of flavour.

Field Street is a nice little street to browse if you are looking for an Asian restaurant to dine at. Opposite Thanh Thanh is the popular Wasai Japanese Kitchen and further along the street is House of Pearl Restaurant, one of our favourite Malaysian restaurants. Yen Linh Restaurant, Genki Japanese Restaurant and Metropolitan Oyster Supplies are other restaurants that are located at Field Street.
