Back by Popular Demand: Hanoi Hannah’s Soup Series Returns

Welcoming a Fresh New Selection of Experimental Vietnamese Soups for a Limited Time, Exploring Beyond the Much-Loved Pho

Hanoi Hannah’s annual showcase of great regional Vietnamese soups is back to warm your soul this winter. Launching Monday, 27 June the popular ‘Soup Series’ returns to Hanoi Hannah Express Lane and Hanoi Hannah Vol. II for four weeks. 

Each week will see a new slurpy creation unveiled showcasing Vietnam’s vibrant local cuisine and warming broths.

About Hanoi Hannah
In 2012, driven by the absence of hawker-style restaurants south of the river, the founders of Commune Group launched their first Vietnamese-style restaurant, Hanoi Hannah. Hanoi Hannah was created with a ‘for you, by us’ ethos, quickly becoming a Melbourne favourite, focusing on Vietnamese street eats with staple dishes like poached chicken or tender beef phở, vermicelli salads and a range of rice paper rolls. Hanoi Hannah has since grown to include two sibling restaurants: Hannah Hannah Express Lane, and Hanoi Hannah Vol. II in Elsternwick. Late 2021 saw the launch of ‘Hanoi Hannah Entertaining’ a new food provision service catering for group social events with three key offerings: ‘Entertaining’, ‘Picnic Time’, and the ‘Office Shout’.
