Huong Viet is a recent newcomer to the veg*n restaurant scene and it’s great to see another ‘vegan’ sign at restaurants in Footscray!
This will be a short review because I’ve only been to Huong Viet once when passing through Footscray. I took a detour so I could have some lunch here, after seeing good reviews on Facebook and pictures of awesome Vietnamese food. Usually I like to visit a place at least twice before blogging, but I won’t be in Footscray again for a while.
I love lemongrass tofu, so that stood out for me. I anticipated it would be exactly what you see, which is a more dry dish, which is fine by me. I got some rice on the side and ended up taking half the tofu home because it was a very big serve.
This was beautifully flavoured and I was so glad to have leftovers the next day. I think this would make a fantastic option for a share dish.
Service was very friendly and if I were around Footscray often, I’d be going back to try more of the menu. I can’t remember what I paid, but the serving was generous and it wasn’t expensive.
