With our car loaded to the MAX we headed to Canterbury yesterday to cater for The University for the Creative Arts Degree Show 2017. It was such a pleasure to be back at my old university and see familiar faces (some of whom haven’t changed one bit – eternally youthful).
Hanoi Cà Phê impressed the crowds with our fresh Vietnamese BBQ flavours 🌈🇻🇳💥🌶
We’re super honoured to be asked back to cater for next years Degree show at all the UCA campuses!!! Woohoo 😃👏🏻✌🏼

Curry for Change

This evening I met some wonderful and inspirational people who are working towards ending hunger and changing lives in Asia and Africa. I’m proud to be a part of Curry for Change – a charity that helps people hold Supper clubs to raise money for families who suffer from hunger. 

All you need to do is host a supper club and donate funds that will support local families across 19 countries to lead better lives. Natco, who is the food partner for Curry for Change will even provide vital ingredients and kingfisher beers to help get you started.

This year make a difference and join the Supper club movement!

Last evening Hanoi Cà Phê hosted our first ever Supper Club at Hucks Cafe in Walthamstow. It was a resounding success! Such a pleasure to see so many happy faces and empty bowls enjoying food and conversation.

Special shout out to Mamma Tinh and the HCP Phê Dream Team! You show endless enthusiasm, humour and strength – You are AMAZING.

To top it all up, I found out yesterday from a guest that our little event was even featured in TimeOut London!!! 😁

Next Supper Club coming soon – so watch this space! x

Yum yum – Pho!

As the weather turns and my household experiences the first signs of the sniffles, it’s the perfect time to make Pho (pronounced “Furh”) Vietnamese noodle soup. It’s healthy, flavoursome and an absolute must for fighting the dreaded cold. 
It’s all in the broth which was slow cooked for 5-hours using charred ginger & onion, star anise, cinnamon sticks and a whole corn-fed chicken. This broth will taste even more amazing tomorrow – Pho is traditionally served for breakfast with plenty of fresh herbs, limes and chillies, it’s definitely a wake up meal that will keep you energised all day long.
Hanoi Cà Phê – Vietnamese street food will be serving this popular national dish at our next food market on Sunday 16th October at East Village Market, E20 (11am-4pm). Join us then to enjoy this heartwarming dish 😋🍜😋
