Co Do, Richmond
It can be sometimes overwhelming deciding which of Victoria Street’s Vietnamese are deserving of your dining. What I’ve learnt so far is that is pretty good all around! My usual barometer of quality is the level of crowd, and in the new year buzz Co Do looked like a bustling venue. There’s definitely a lacuna of difference in how busy some of these stores and for better or worse, I go off that. Today for only $11 I had the crispy chicken with vermicelli noodles dry style. Chicken was tender with spice and the dry noodles was a nice alternative with light flavours and contrast of textures including fried onion and cashews. Good enough to come back and cheap enough to come back often.
