Every plate achieves that elusive, cuisine-defining balance of sweet, salty, and sour — even dessert.
Today, I decided to go to Xiclo Vietnamese Restaurant, in Chatswood, Sydney and ordered their Special Beef Phở. I recommend Xiclo for people who always wanted more flavors out of their stock. This restaurant makes a hell of a stock. The soup is amazingly intricate but very delicate at the same time. This goes the same to Phở or Thai’s Boat Noodle. The taste of the stock needs to have that rich pork and beef flavors through it with a hint of herbs which includes ginger, cinnamon and many other herbs. I assume, to get the rich consistency, the stock would need to be cooked for hours!Now I am craving for one!
Our favourites include the winter and summer rolls. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for great and inexpensive food in Chatswood.
bun bo hue… couldn’t fault it. A symphony of the right amount of oil and just the right spiciness. Didn’t need to call for more chilli, always a good sign.
Had a dinner party here not long ago, and the food and service was exceptional…Overall it was the best Vietnamese restaurant I have been to in a long while.
An expanded menu…pho is till very good and the vermicelli/salad combination bowl is also very good. Still great value and quick service. Will definitely keep coming back for lunch.
Delicious and good value Vietnamese food. The service is prompt and a is a really great place for a quick, cheap and tasty meal. It is one of our favourite places to eat in Chatswood.
