​Paperboy Kitchen @Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne

We have heard that Vietnamese food in Melbourne is pretty good, and the nearby Paperboy Kitchen seemed to have pretty good reviews!

A little shop that has around 20 high chair seats, it is also very popular for takeaways. Despite being lunch hour, the crowd cleared very quickly.


Each main comes with either a traditional bread roll, or rice noodle bowl with Asian slaw, carrot-daikon, pickled red onion, sriracha mayo, and fresh coriander.

Since we were not in the mood for bread, we all opted for the rice noodle bowl, which was very awesome chilled noodles with lots of crunchy vegetables! It was a refreshing symphony of sweet, sour and spicy for our taste buds.

We tried the Yellow Chicken Curry Bowl (A$15, Today’s special with Free Range Chicken Curry), Spicy BBQ Pork Bowl (A$14.50, Pork Shoulder with chili, spring onion and sesame oil) and BBQ Chicken Bowl (A$12, Marinated Free Range Chicken).

Could not decide which was the best because we enjoyed all of them! Rolls ranged from A$9.50 to A$13, while the bowls ranged from A$12 to A$15.50.
