District 1 Opens in Fortitude Valley | Bring on the 3 am Pho

Pricing: $5- $25

Food: 9.5/10

Service: 10/10

Inspired by Ho Chi Minh City, District 1 has chosen to set up shop in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.

Owner Philip Pham has created a concept that is buzzing and alive, taking traditional Vietnamese dishes and adding a modern twist to the menu. The humble cafe has Banh Mi and traditional Pho but also offers sweet potato fries as a side (which were definitely my favorite).

We tried out the Lemongrass Beef Banh Mi and the Beef Pho for lunch. The Banh Mi was filled with full flavored, succulent meat and the Pho was warming with whole flavors. The dishes on offer are reasonably priced and satisfy those hunger cravings. The best part about their entire concept is that they are open until 3 am on weekends. Yes, 3 am! Say goodbye to greasy pizza and unappetizing fast food, post party Banh Mi and Pho is the new way to go. I must say, we definitely needed something like this in Brisbane.
