miss chu tuckshop @ regent place, sydney

Miss Chu has been on my radar for a long while now but with the original Darlinghurst shop being a little out of the way, I didn't quite get round to trying it (yes, it's partly laziness). How convenient that Miss Chu Tuckshop pops up in Regent Place in the city!

If you didn't know already, Miss Chu's is queen of Vietnamese rice paper rolls. We took the special they had that day; the roast pork rice paper rolls. One word - YUM! Give me a dozen of these any day.

Some other things we had that night; the Caramelised Free-Range Pork Belly Stew (served with Asian greens and a brown rice). Pictured also is a serve of the Traditional Pork Hanoi spring rolls.

Prawn dumplings which are a little drowned in a puddle of sauce. The skin on these are a little thick unlike traditional Chinese dumplings.

What had my attention though were the desserts - Thai Custard with a Black Glutinous Rice Slice and their Lychee Tapioca Pudding with Coconut Cream. The boy didn't seem to think these were all too healthy but by god, they are so very yummy in the tummy.

Miss Chu's is certainly a refreshing take on Vietnamese food but at the same time a little more pricey than your average Vietnamese shop. The tuckshop at Regent's Place isn't all that big either so better for small groups (it was actually quite cute to see how they had ironing boards as dining tables but they only seat about four).

Looks like good stuff. I've been having Vietnamese withdrawals and in need of some spring roll fixes! The packaging that they have look smart and i'm curious about the ironing boards as tables? lool.
