An exploration of Vietnam's lesser-known noodle soups.
The end of winter is finally in sight. To farewell the (hopefully) last moments of chilly weather, Hanoi Hannah is making sure Melburnians stay warm until springtime with its new Soup Series. Every Monday in August, the beloved Vietnamese chain will roll out three new soups that move away from the well-trodden pho and give patrons a less frequented taste of the cuisine.
The deal is available at all three Hanoi Hannah outposts across Windsor, New Quarter in Richmond and the Elsternick Kiosk. Each venue will host a different soup each week and the dish will be available at the respective restaurants throughout the week, then reset with a different soup come the following Monday.
The first week's selection includes an especially tasting sounding banh canh cua, which is tapioca noodles submerged in shrimp and crab broth, then topped with soft shell crab and charred prawns. Other specialties include braised duck leg and egg noodles in a duck and shiitake broth; pork dumpling soup with whole prawns, topped with bok choy and coriander; and a spicy pho chay, a vego version of pho.
The Hanoi Hannah Soup Series is available at the New Quarter, Windsor and Elsternwick locations for the month of of August. Keep an eye on Instagram for weekly updates.
