If happy, numerous staff are an indication of a successful foodie business, then this late-opening Thai-Vietnamese joint on North Adelaide’s main drag is a winner. The long, slender room is decked-out in packing-crate chic: blonde-wood partitions, industrial lighting, naïve 1950s pastels and fonts…it’s Miami milkbar meets Saigon suitcase. Food is fast and fresh: netted spring rolls with carrot, vermicelli and rich chilli mayo; or a ‘very exciting’ Thai beef salad with gritty Thai eggplant, lemongrass and mint. These are substantial takeaway snacks, or you can sit down and make a meal of them.
Just because you’re up in the small hours, doesn’t mean your snack options should be restricted to the few usual suspects. These nocturnal eateries are here for you when you need them most.
