Cabramatta: Sydney’s Little Vietnam

Cabramatta: Catch the train out to Cabramatta from Central Station and get a taste of Vietnam Australian-style. Full of food stores, trinket shops and interesting people, this is one of the most underrated parts of Sydney. Great and authentic Vietnamese food can be found at any one of the little shops but special mentions should go to Pho 54 on Park Rd and the Thanh Binh at 52a John Street. Also check out the BKK Supermarket for some exotic ingredients and great meat bargains. Catch the Liverpool via Granville train from Central Station. But beware, Cabramatta is a major heroin dealing hub for Sydney. Police presence is high and has worked to some extent. Still watch your bag and try to look calm at all times.
