Locals around Surry Hills should be jumping all over this one. Popular Vietnamese street food restaurant Great Aunty Three have decided that two years of just being a smart pick for lunch isn’t quite enough, meeting demand and celebrating their 2nd birthday by finally extending opening hours to dinner time. Those heading along can now expect to tuck into those signature rice paper rolls well into the evening, as well as a list of new menu items introduced for the night time crowd.
While street food like rice paper rolls and banh mi is the bread and butter of Great Aunty Three in both Surry Hills and Enmore – their very first store in Enmore is turning five this year – the inner-city iteration has also tasked the kitchen with Vietnamese cuisine that’s a bit more sophisticated, with a broad scope that includes from other Southeast Asian countries. As such, the dinner menu now features the likes of Singaporean crab, shrimp on sugarcane pop, and smokey ‘n’ sticky BBQ pork belly skewers.
“We’re really excited to be launching Great Aunty Three Nights”, said co-owner Michael Le, who operates both Great Aunty Three restaurants with his wife Mai. “It’s perfect timing with daylight savings so people can grab dinner as the sun is just starting to set and still have the whole night ahead of them. We’re developed a menu that is quite different to our existing lunch menu and hope to showcase our version of classic Vietnamese cuisine”.
