I found myself in Subi one lunchtime with an hour to kill and chanced upon Fee Fi Pho Fum, a Vietnamese cafe on the main Rokeby Road strip.
The lady at the till greeted me warmly and gave me a menu which contained all of the vietnamese favourites – rice paper rolls, stuffed chicken wings, pho, bun, stir fries, fried rice, noodles and salads. There’s also jelly tea, coffee, and complimentary vietnamese highland tea at lunchtime.
I chose the vietnamese chicken salad, and I wasn’t disappointed. Lovely fresh tender chicken strips, coriander, mint, cabbage, carrot, and nuts along with a home made dressing. It was bright, zingy and thoroughly delicious.
Shortly after I arrived, the cafe filled up with local workers and is obviously a popular spot. They also serve dinner.
I was quite impressed with the serve yourself counter where you can get beansprouts, mint, chilli, and all of the other accompaniments for the soups. It’s nice to be able to take just what you need.
I’d like to go back to Fee Fi Pho Fum and try some of the other dishes. It was authentic and yummy – definitely worth a try.
