Cô Thành

Since 1995, Nguyen Thi Thành's (aka The Lunch Lady) recipes have been a sacred treasure to the people of Saigon, Vietnam. In 2014, the owner of Cô Thành, Brian Woo, became Thi Thành's first and only student, mastering all her recipes after a three-year apprenticeship. This June, Cô Thành opened its doors in Central, bringing Nguyen Thi Thành's recipes from the heart of District 1 in Saigon to Hong Kong. 
 
Cô Thành boasts a 750 - square - foot corner space nestled in Kau U Fong with a rustic Vietnamese street-food ambiance. Our tasting began with a signature Vietnamese starter Chả giò (House made pork spring rolls served with Nuoc cham dipping sauce, $58/5pc). The spring rolls are crispy with the taro adding the aroma and sweetness. Bánh mì($88) is Vietnamese style baguette sandwich with housemade pâté, cold cuts, pickles, cilantro, spring onions and Vietnamese chili peppers. Cô Thành serves up a mouthwatering a la carte menu and a rotation of daily specials. Staple noodle soups on the menu include Bún Bò Huế, a robust Huếstyle beef broth with a variety of beef cuts; Bún Mắm, a unique Vietnamese 'seafood gumbo' made with three kinds of preserved fish and shrimp; and Bún Thái, a Vietnamese rendition of Thai flavours in the form of noodle soup. Priced affordably at $98 each, all three dishes are yummy and filling. 
 
Be sure to look for The Lunch Lady herself, as she makes frequent visits to Cô Thành to ensure only the highest quality and authentic Vietnamese ingredients are served.
