Hanoi Hannah

A walk-in only Vietnamese restaurant in Prahran, Hanoi Hannah offers some traditional offerings such as pho, spring rolls and salads,  as well as more modern interpretations such as chicken rib buckets and soft shell crab with chilli, lime and mayo. We ordered three dishes to share and two drinks and although still feeling a little peckish,  decided to get the bill and leave. Why? In short, because it was quite underwhelming.

Pork sliders - the actual pork belly was chewy and too fatty; 80% fat and 20% meat. Chewy skin is a big no no.

Coconut marinated pork ribs - slightly better than the pork sliders as the meat comes cleanly off the bone but the coconut sauce/marinade was not detectable.

Green mango salad with crispy fish - mango was a little too ripe and wasn't the crunchy texture that the green mango has. The fish was crispy but the salad dressing was a little too sour,  too one dimensional.
