Junkboat Vietnamese

Junkboat opened its doors just last month on the bustling Beaufort Street of North Perth, renowned for its collection of quirky cafes, bars, and restaurants. After hearing a lot about Junkboat on Facebook I thought it was about time I went to check out what the fuss is all about! I’m yet to find a place that compares to my top 3 Vietnamese restaurants in Perth – Tra Vinh, Phi Yen and Mama Tran.

Not surprisingly Junkboat was packed out on a Friday night. We managed to score the last table for 4.

WHAT WE ORDERED & THOUGHT

Totally parched, we ordered some cool refreshing drinks before our butts even touched the chairs!

Viet iced coffee & avocado smoothie (both $6 each)

Ahhhhh yummo! The iced Vietnamese coffee was just what I needed. Ice cold, not too sweet, and a good about of bitterness from the coffee. I hate it when restaurants serve me a cup of liquid brown sugar.

Chao tom ($8) Sugarcane prawns

We came here with really empty bellies so we ordered something to nibble on. This was nothing fancy pants boo…

Not the best tasting soups I’ve had.

The pork was tasty!!! I think next time I’ll stick to ordering the Bun if I come back here.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Good serving sizes but at a slightly higher price than you would find in Northbridge. Not sure if I would hurry back here for another feed. I still prefer my top 3 Vietnamese Restaurants. If I was in the area again I would definitely come back. But seeing as I have to drive through Northbridge to get here I would be more likely to stop and eat in Northbridge.
