Goi is a takeaway concept that honours traditional Vietnamese cuisine, fresh produce and healthy foods.
Goi was born out of chef Candy Dao's passion to bring food from her Vietnamese heritage to everyday people in Australia.
Born to a family of five, both her parents worked long hours, often leaving for work early in the morning and returning home late in the evening. Without time to prepare meals, they gave Candy the responsibility to prepare family meals from the early age of eight.
Vietnam's fertile plains and its mix of ethnicities has been the driving force behind a cuisine rich in flavours and traditions. Its people have cultivated an appreciation for a range of cooking styles and techniques. Candy spent her youth honing her skills and upon arriving in Australia, felt a strong desire to bring Vietnamese cuisine to an expanded audience through this unique takeaway format. Her takeaway store Goi is the result, a humble food experience devoted to maintaining the principles of authentic Vietnamese cooking.
