Pho Dzung: inexpensive, delicious Vietnamese pho in Melbourne


There is so much good Asian food in Melbourne, but if you are craving a bowl of savoury Vietnamese pho, go to Pho Dzung in the Richmond District, which is home to a large Vietnamese community. When we went to Pho Dzung on a Sunday for lunch, we found it packed with Vietnamese families bent over steaming bowls of pho (Vietnamese noodle soup served with fresh mint leaves and bean sprouts on the side). I’ve tried a lot of pho in my life and I can say that this restaurant belongs in my top three pho places.

The restaurant is unpretentious and the prices are low. Make sure you finish off your meal with this favorite Vietnamese dessert: sweet beans and tapioca with crushed ice in coconut milk.
