History and Background:
One of the cheapest eats in London, takeaway prices vary from £4-6.
- Fresh summer rolls (my favourite) – recommended * £3.50
- Deep Fried spring rolls £4.00
- Banh Mi Baguettes ranging from Shredded Caramel Pork to Char-grilled Satay Chicken £4.50
- Extra main filling £1.00
- Add Pate £0.50
- Pho (similar flavours) for £6.00
- Rice Boxes £6.00
- Vietnamese drinks ranging from £1.50 – £2.00
These are big baguettes, but I found them to be slightly too dry, it may be because there’s too much bread – condiments ratio. Nevertheless, they’re enjoyable and aromatic, and similar to those that I have eaten in Vietnam. The added kick from chillies and fresh herbs allow your taste buds to savour the fresh flavour.
Fresh summer rolls (below) are my absolute favourite, my grandma always make them for the family on special occasions, and it really does taste exactly the same! The rolls are tasteless without dipping it into the lemon/ fish sauce I really love, you should relish the taste when you get a chance.
Service: It does get really busy especially during lunch hours, but the staff are friendly all the same. They are super speedy and very quick service, just what people love. They won’t rush you out either, since most of the business is take-out.
The bits and bobs:
- Opening hours can be quite specific:
- Mon-Fri 1130-4pm, 5.30-9pm. Closed Sundays
- No booking between 12pm – 2.30pm, weekdays
- Expect a queue but it dies down
- The pho is supposed to be quite good, so try them out, (I will next time)
- If you are thinking of visiting, ask me to come with, please!
