Pho N Roll

It's no secret that Melbourne is home to many incredible dumpling houses - from Hutong to Shandong Mama, Melbournites are spoilt for choice. What I didn't expect however, was to find such incredible dumplings in a Vietnamese eatery in the legal district of the CBD.

Pho N Roll is a no frills, almost blink and you'll miss it, small eatery on Little Collins Street. Offering a few long shared tables for seating, with its quick and easy service, it's perfect for a lunch spot.

Both the prawn and chive dumplings ($6.00) and the mushroom and spinach dumplings ($6.00) are a must with any order. The prawn dumplings were brimming with real chunks of prawn, and the mushroom and spinach dumplings were surprisingly full of flavour.

The traditional beef pho ($11), whilst deceptively coming out looking on the barren side, was still incredibly filling and hit the mark with its fragrant well spiced broth.

Cheap and cheerful, Pho N Roll is definitely on my recommendation list for a lunch spot in the legal district of the CBD. 

Food: 4.5/5
Venue: 2.5/5
Service: 3.5/5
Total: 10.5/15
Verdict: Love - get around to trying it soon
