Good Vietnamese in a good spot

Mamma Cho’s, Shop 1/419 Gordon Street. Maribyrnong. Phone: 9318 8691

You won’t find anything much different that can’t be had at a recognised Vietnamese precinct such as Footscray or St Albans.

But Mamma Cho’s, sited at the Edgewater shopping “centre”, is on to a pretty good thing, we reckon.

The place is crisp and attractive.

The service is friendly.

There’s a heap of parking, even on a busy Saturday.

And, perhaps most attractively, Mamma Cho’s is nicely situated at what is for many CTS readers a handy, easy stop between either going to or returning from Highpoint or other shopping chores over that way.

OK, we skipped Saturday breakfast, which may have sharpened our appetites somewhat … but still, we loved our lunch of simple, regular Vietnamese food of the kind we’ve enjoyed countless times.

My crispy skin chicken with tomato rice (com ga chien don com do, $11.50) was just right, the egg-studded rice nice and fluffy, the chook coming easily from the bone and the soup/broth hot and not too sweet.

Upon request, the sweet chilli sauce was replaced with the much-preferred (by me) soy sauce studded with fresh red chilli slices.

Bennie liked his beef pho ($11).

Having tried it on a previous visit, I can attest to its quality.

  1. Not a local but have revisited three times and recommended it to my friends who have all enjoyed it. Really enjoyed the crispy pork belly and the soft shelled crab. Good service from the young men who have started up this business. Good value for money in pleasant surroundings with easy parking.

  2. We live in walking distance and eat regulary or get takeaway from Mamma Cho’s. We love the food (especially the soft shelled crab) and the very friendly and obliging staff. It’s great to have a fantastic Vietamese restaurant so close to home!
