Co Thu Quan may serve more familiar Vietnamese dishes like pho and rice paper rolls, but it specialises in northern dishes that are less visible in Melbourne Vietnamese restaurants. Rice paper salads where sheets of rice paper are merely moistened before it is muddled with beef jerky, herbs, peanuts, dried shrimp, cumquat and a hard-boiled quail egg are signatures to Co Thu Quan, while any dish adorned with grilled meats, like the grilled pork with rolled rice sheets receives a complexity from charcoal cooking, are insanely popular dishes.
