Free pho and a katsu comeback

Hospitality innovators Commune Group have two new offerings to get Melburnians excited for the final three months of the year, as the city begins to reopen and starts on its path to normality.

October will see the return of a Tokyo Tina cult favourite, and give one pho fan the chance to win a year’s worth of the Vietnamese noodle soup from Hanoi Hannah.


To celebrate the launch of its own delivery service, Hanoi Hannah is giving one lucky winner the chance to be slurping pho every day for an entire year – that’s 365 free bowls of steaming hot Vietnamese noodle soup.

The competition will run for two weeks from Thursday, 8 October and anyone can enter via the Hanoi Hannah website, with the winner announced on Monday, 26 October.

By skipping international delivery partners, Hanoi Hannah’s delivery service helps customers support local and receive the best quality dishes to their home.


Back by popular demand is Tokyo Tina’s classic Prawn Katsu Slider: a soft milk bun filled with crispy, deep-fried, panko-crumbed prawns; crunchy shredded cabbage; and a generous dollop of yuzu mayo.

A cult Melbourne dish that has been greatly missed, the Prawn Katsu Slider ($15) is back for good, earning itself a permanent spot on Tokyo Tina’s finish-at-home menu via Providoor.
