On a trip to Vietnam a few years ago, I remember sitting at a street side café after the scorching heat at left me longing for a Vietnamese iced coffee. What is a Vietnamese iced coffee and what makes it essentially Vietnamese? Many countries in Asia have a similar preparation but Vietnam has its own signature concoction. Sweetened with condensed milk, a shot of strong espresso on the rocks worked like a charm on this particular hot day.
And as I sat there pondering what to do next, an abundant platter of Bun Cha seemed the most appetizing in the moment. This is a mix of Vietnamese vermicelli rice noodles that are garnished with salad and herbs, and a flavorful vinaigrette to add great taste to the dish. I felt rejuvenated, taken care of and comforted. It was in that moment that I got a glimpse of the essence of Vietnam. I got a glimpse back again into my heritage.
It is something to cherish –the connection made through food. This is why I decided to create a special set lunch event for the Surbiton Food Festival this month of May. Treat yourself or a friend to a food adventure of Bun Cha Nem with Vietnamese Iced Coffee. For ￡15, you will get to have that same experience I had on the street café in Vietnam. And, it will be for a good cause this time as all the proceeds from these set lunch vouchers will go directly to help needy families in North Vietnam.
**Vouchers will be available at the restaurant all through May, and at the Surbiton Village Fete in St. Andrew’s Square on 13th of May, 2017.
