Me Oi – Strathfield

Vanessa: A visit to Strathfield’s vibrant food scene generally leaves me overwhelmed by the choice of dining options. However, I have located one place that I will definitely make a bee line for many times over. Recently, I was introduced by my lovely cousin, Veronica, to the Vietnamese eatery, Me Oi.

Me Oi, which translates to “Hey Mum!”, serves up delicious Pho and other staples synonymous with Vietnamese cuisine.

It should be known that the Pho can be ordered as either small ($11), regular ($13) and big ($15). The small is a standard size and personally enough for one substantial Pho fix – however if you are adventurous, gluttonous or wanting to share with 1-2 other people go for the big– as it is huge!

Mr M fits somewhere into the above category and therefore chose the big option of the Pho Special Combination– a seriously massive serve of steaming broth with rare beef , cooked beef, beef balls, tripe and tendon. What a combo!

I opted for the Mi Ga Don ($14), as a soup, which is thin egg noodles in a clear broth, served with a side of crispy skin chicken. This was a substantial serve and absolutely delicious. The clear soup, although not as robust in flavor as the Pho, was well matched with the chicken. A definite winner and would work just as well as a dry noodle dish.

We also chose two dishes off the entrée menu. The Cha Gio ($9), six crispy spring rolls filled with meat or vegetables. These were nice and fairly standard as far as spring rolls go.

The stand out entrée for me was the salt and pepper calamari ($12). Crunchy, crispy calamari tossed with loads of chilli and garlic makes for a perfect combination and a very tasty dish.

Me Oi is a sure thing if you are looking for a well priced, comforting bowl of pho to warm you in the winter months to come. It will certainly eliminate any indecision on my next trip to Strathfield!

Enjoy!
