Coco Hut - Pretty Good Noodles

Coco Hut is a 10 or so table restaurant in a strip development off Capstan Way in Richmond. It is clean and well appointed. The house special is Hainanese chicken rice which is reasonably priced at $19 for a whole chicken with 5 bowls of rice and soup. Not my favourite so didn't partake but others may be interested. Instead we concentrated on fried noodles - mee goreng, char kway teow and Singapore spicy noodles which as I recall are not actually served there. All were good sized servings and cost between $6 and $7. I would say the char kway teow was the most authentic; nice bite and tasty Chinese sausage with yummy sauce. The Mee Goreng tasted good but not quite like the real deal and the Singapore noodles needed more bite but were certainly acceptable.

Sometimes all we need is reasonably priced well prepared food even if it is not completely authentic. I would say that the food at Coco Hut is better tasting and certainly better value than I have had at some other Asian restaurants in town with much higher pretensions.

The menu has a mix of noodle and rice dishes as well as noodles in soup and curry chicken and beef.
