Leederville’s Oxford Street basks with a variety of cafes, pizza places and burger bars. Now it has a Vietnamese tuckshop, great for weekday lunches or a quick brunch bahn mi to go.
Unlike a typical Vietnamese joint in the hood (aka. Girrawheen), the menu is simple, yes there is only one page! They serve the classic pho, a vermicelli noodle salad known as bun thit nuong, a Vietnamese baguette known as the bahn mi thit, and fresh rice paper rolls all available in a variety of flavours.
Having a sister on a strictly vegan diet limits the dining choices available on our sister dates. It’s great to know that each of their Vietnamese dishes are available in vegan options. We both decided to try the pho, I got the beef while she tried the tofu and mushroom version.
The soup was lighter and less oily compared to other pho dishes I’ve had previously. There were also generous portions of beef, which were nice and lean yet tender. Overall, I would have liked the broth to be a bit stronger, but if you’re going for a cleaner and healthier pho this is a bowl for you.
My sister said the same about her vegan pho, she enjoyed the plentiful amount of vegetables and tofu, but also noted the broth lacked a bit of flavour.
I love how Three Sisters is a younger, brighter and more modern take compared to old school Vietnamese restaurants. I will definitely be back to try their fresh spring rolls and rice vermicelli noodles.
PS. Yay finally a place in Perth that has Vegan Pho!
