Enjoying some Misschu at work.

Vietnamese rice paper rolls have become a popular lunch past time for many Sydney siders, all thanks to Miss Chu. The beauty of it all is that Miss Chu also delivers. Love it how your paper bag packaging comes with with a tick box menu item. Such a cool tuck shop run by one strong lady who can hold her ground. One who does not take any crap from anyone. If you don't like her food, go elsewhere.

Take your pick

The first time I tried Miss Chu was when I was actually living in Melbourne. The success of this tuck shop enterprise is doing just as well down there.

Tucking into a fresh rice paper roll at Hyde Park

The peking duck pancakes with hoisin sauce are just amazing. Although they're quite small, they fill the spot. If you're seeing a Gold Class film at Event Cinemas on George Street, you might see one of these Miss Chu treats on your sampler plate. The quality is never compromised either way. If you find yourself at David Jones Foodhall late in the afternoon; you might be able to grab yourself four for only $10 each. Otherwise these little treats are $3.50 each. Worth it. Oh so worth it. The duck is cooked beautifully. The right amount of flour based bread (awesome when hot) is just right.

Two fresh prawn rice paper rolls

Otherwise their chicken rice paper rolls are heavenly. My favourite would be the prawns with mango sauce. You only need two, and that is your lunch. If you find yourself in the David Jones Foodhall area, grab yourself a couple and enjoy them on the lawns at nearby Hyde Park. Perfect on a sunny weekend.

Fortunately, my office is also near Miss Chu's at Regent Place in the city. They're great to also take away (and occasionally be treated to some), and TO enjoy while working. Miss Chu's rice paper rolls are a great distraction from fruit and yoghurt if you don't have the time to get away from your desk. Unhealthy I know, yet the fresh prawns, rice and vegetables neatly rolled together feels so great to tuck into. Work or leisure, versatile lunch at its best. Also love their Bondi tuck shop right near the beach. A perfect (healthier) alternative to hot chips and burgers.
