I can’t believe no one seems to have reviewed Cafe 58 Vietnamese on Johnston St. It’s been on my list to try for years, as I always receive positive verbal feedback about it, and I finally ate there with a friend on an impromptu Wednesday evening out. They provide fantastic food and friendly service.
We ordered vegetarian rice paper rolls to share (bottom), my friend had a vegetarian rice noodle soup (below) and I had hot chilli sizzling kangaroo with coconut rice (above), which was amazing.
The menu is eclectic and diverse compared to many Vietnamese places and the wine list is extensive by the bottle, though small (but reasonable) by the glass. I had a good South Australian shiraz to complement my kangaroo. Cafe 58 exceeded my expectations and is somewhere I look forward to returning to.
