COCHIN
Sydney, NSW

Behind the imposing wooden doors lies a gem of a restaurant serving traditional Vietnamese cuisine at reasonable prices. Cochin's food is a fusion of Vietnamese and French traditions with many dishes designed to share. The Surry Hills' restaurant's rear garden with candles and palms is a great spot to dine on a warm night. BYO an added bonus.

DETAILS
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
The name Cochin refers to the southern part of Vietnam, which became a French colony at the end of the 19th century. The food reflects the influence of this period by fusing Vietnamese and French traditions and grafting them onto a contemporary Australian canvas.

The food is designed to share, so this venue is perfect for couples or a group affair. The "Taste of Ginger" is the highlight of the menu - a degustation for two arranged by poultry, seafood and meat, tied together by different varieties of the theme ingredient: ginger. It clearly articulates the various cultural influences of the chef, with such combinations as ginger ravioli and tea-smoked duck breast warmed by a fragrant bok choy broth. The tender pork belly roulade is juxtaposed by crunchy lotus pickle, with a cleansing coconut consomme casting the senses back to Saigon. This food takes you on a journey, so come prepared for the ride.
