Syiok is based in Wanneroo Markets in the main food hall area. Usually it’s the only stall with a queue and that’s a clear sign that the food is good. There are weekend specials where you can have a combination of curries veg and rice. There are also regular Malaysian favourites like Nasi Lemak, Kway Teow, Nasi Goreng, Roti Canai, Mee Goreng etc. I have tried the food many times and can confirm that everything is delicious.
Nasi Lemak with crispy chicken is so tasty. The sambal is perfectly balanced, and the eggs cooked just nicely hard boiled.
The weekend special on this occasion was chicken curry with turmeric cabbage and rice. As you can see very plentiful and absolutely delicious.
Syiok also sell desserts such as ondeh ondeh – those delicious glutinous balls with pandan flavouring. I definitely recommend giving Syiok a go – it’s casual, plentiful and incredibly good.
In the heart of Wanneroo Markets is a food stall that is always busy. Vietnamese Hot Food is the real deal, catering not only for the public but also to the several Vietnamese retailers at the markets.
We often go there for a nourishing pho or bun, and the stall sells all of the popular versions plus spring rolls, fried fish, chicken wings and fish skewers. It’s sometimes hard to get a table, and tables are a little cramped and canteen style. The slight inconvenience is worth it though because the soups are incredibly good. I’ve always wondered how they get so much flavour into the clear and unassuming broth that goes with the pork and prawn bun.
The beef brisket broth is rich and chunky with tender beef and carrots and a warming spicy mouthfeel.
Both soups are packed full of green veggies, onions and herbs as well as having a hearty serve of noodles underneath. The regular condiments are also provided, and there is a fridge full of soft drinks.
Next time you are passing, pop in and try some authentic and tasty Vietnamese food.
