This delightful little eatery is the kind of place you will want to come back to again and again, if not for the warm, welcoming feel or the mouth-wateringly delicious Vietnamese street food, then for the hopscotch grid painted on the floor!
Vietnamese Laundry is a relative newbie on the Vietnamese-food-to-be-had-in-Adelaide block and is located on Sturt Street in the CBD, very close to Whitmore Square. The venue is tiny, having been turned from an actual laundry into Vietnamese Laundry (hence the name), but the menu is full of delicious items that will have both you and your taste buds dizzy with anticipation and leave you and your appetite glowingly sated. From Banh-Mi and cold rolls to salad bowls and Vietnamese buns, this wood-and-brick eatery will serve you up some of the best Vietnamese street food you will ever come across outside of Vietnam and, if you want a delicious Vietnamese iced coffee to go with that then they’ve got that covered as well!
Despite the size of their venue, the team behind Vietnamese Laundry have managed to comfortably fit in a decent amount of seating but, having said that, they are very popular and when the lunch time crowd hits you may be struggling to find yourself a seat. You can choose to eat in or take away though, and Whitmore Square is just around the corner and offers lots of green, leafy shade for these warm summer days.
My tip is to get in there early – prior to about 1pm you should be right and besides, that gives you more time to sample more of their delicious wares! Trust me – you’ll want to.
152 Sturt Street in the CBD. Right here.
