Bun Ta Kitchen

108 Hopkins Street
VIC 3011

We headed out looking for a lunchtime Vietnamese soup hit in Footscray and decided to give the fresh face of Bun Ta Kitchen a try.

Their Facebook page explains that Bun Ta Kitchen is re-launch of the former Huy Huy after the 12 year old business underwent a major renovation late last year. The new look is much more modern and the space is transformed with stylish, light and airy feel.

The menu is extensive, only a few excerpts are shown below, it seems similar to the previous version.

There are plenty of Bun Ta options.

Pho and other rice or egg noodle soups are available too.

We started with the combination spring rolls, which came with the usual lettuce, and thin sweet chilli dipping sauce. The rolls were crunchy and tasty.

The Pho Ga looked good as always, especially after being topped up with bean shoots and Vietnamese basil. There was a mix of types of pieces of poultry and the broth was fair, but not good enough to supplant the favoured local offering.

I had the Hu Tieu Rau Cai - rice noodles with vegetables, which had plenty of bok choy, broccoli and carrot. Unfortunately I had to wait at least 10 minutes after the Pho arrived before my dish came, and even that was after asking about it.

The dishes are still priced competitively for the area and the refurb has certainly brought it up to be at least the equal of any of it's competitors on looks. The food also was up there without quite excelling. Unfortunately the delay between the bowls of soup slightly disappointed on this visit for us.
