Brand-new restaurant Plus 84 House will open July 31 with a range of Asian fusion eats such as Korean cheese hot dogs, tteokbokki spicy rice cakes, and ramen. The Grenfell Street spot is hoping to be Adelaide’s new one-stop-shop for food and drinks.
“Customers can come for morning tea at 7:30am, for lunch, for an afternoon coffee, and for dinner as well,” restaurant owner Toan Vu says.
“We’ll be ready and excited any time they’d like.”
The new eatery will focus on Vietnamese and Asian fusion eats, but they will also serve up a range of traditional Australian favourites.
For breakfast, Plus 84 House offers mostly Aussie classics––the big breakfast with crispy bacon, two eggs, grilled tomato, mushroom, and sausage; pies, kranskies, and sausage rolls; and more egg-centric delights. The eatery will also serve coffees, lattes, smoothies, thick shakes, and fresh juices throughout the day.
During lunch and dinnertime, Plus 84 House’s menu revolves around noodle soups––such as spicy pork ramen, chicken laksa, and Vietnamese beef stew––and an assortment of share plates, small plates, sandwiches, salads, and Asian fusion mains. There’s popcorn chicken, melted cheese chicken, and karaage chicken to share; a Japanese curry rice bowl, bao, fish and chips, and more as mains; and Korean cheese hot dogs, tteokbokki spicy rice cakes, dimsims and more for small bites.
Vu decided to open his first restaurant after 12 years in South Australia’s hospitality industry and six years as a venue manager. Originally from Vietnam, the first-time business owner will share his own cuisine and cuisines from many other countries with customers.
“I’m from Vietnam, so I know what is best to offer to the customers from my own cuisine,” he says.
“The reason I want it to have other Asian influence and don’t want to limit to Vietnamese only, though, is because I want there to be something for everyone.”
The venue, which Vu describes as “modern and relaxing,” has couches and tables, so students and corporates can take time of their busy day to have a coffee or meal while they unwind or study. Plus 84 House can also cater meetings for those wanting a little escape from the office.
