Banoi

Melbournians love a food trend. First it was Mexican, then we got an influx of American-style diner cuisine. Lately it’s been the zesty but humble Vietnamese flavour palette that has deservedly caught our attention.

Its latest incarnation Banoi can be found in the Docklands, perched on the water’s edge with sweeping views of the Bolte Bridge. What was once the baron wasteland of the CBD, the Docklands is slowly but surely attracting office workers, restaurateurs and punters.

Following the success of their sister restaurant NSHRY, Bonoi offers modern Vietnamese street style dishes, inspired by three generations and shaped by local produce.

The brainchild of young restaurateurs Michael Nham, Viet Nguyen, Tam Nguyen, Brock Legudi and John Lang, the eatery is a combination of their knowledge of Vietnamese street style food, a shared cultural heritage and love for architecture.

Banoi, which translates to grandmother, has a simple philosophy – it’s about coming together to share moments and good food. “We’d come together every night, 20 family members sitting around a table cloth spread out on the floor enjoying the taste of home, prepared fresh each day,” says Nham.

Nham and his team have developed a selection of dishes including a home style pho, crispy pork belly, home made butter and pickled slaw Banh Mi (Burgers) and classic rice paper rolls options, including grilled honey and soy chicken to pumpkin puree and soy sticky pork. It’s also open for breakfast

This fresh injection of flavour and vibrancy is sure to send the local office workers into a spin and might just be enough to bring even the biggest Docklands sceptic south of Spencer Street. If only the giant wheel would come join the party.

Somewhere Else video sings of summer

It almost sounds like the premise of a reality TV show: pile a bunch of artists in a bus for seven days, send them across Mexico and see what happens.
