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 😃👏🏻✌🏼
JOIN US for an enriching day of exploring natural ingredients, colour making and dyeing techniques at Playground London.
++Natural dye-making workshop by Lola Lely Studio, with delicious lunch and cool refreshments by Hanoi Cà Phê++
Tickets have now SOLD OUT for Saturday 27th May but there are still a few places left on Sunday 28th. Book Dryers Kitchen workshop & lunch here.
This week we have been lucky enough to experience and taste the Basque regional cuisine in Northern Spain. From green tomatoes, ultra fresh giant shrimps (which Eddie helped me prepare and cook) to renowned Pintxos bars in San Sebastián serving the finest tapas style snacking food, we have been well fed with food and inspiration!
I will certainly be taking elements of the fresh, colourful and vibrant Vasco flavours to influence Hanoi Ca Phe.
Love – Food – Travel – Inspiration!
On Todays Menu is an all time favourite of mine! My granny used to make this every weekend.
Bún Cha Hanoi – grilled lemongrass pork, mini grilled pork patties in a garlic broth with crispy spring rolls, served on a bed of rice vermicelli noodles, chillies, peanuts and plenty of fresh Vietnamese herbs.
Simply Delicious and Super Healthy too!
Hanoi Cà Phê – Street Food & Coffee will again be making an appearance this Saturday 1st August 2015 at The Blackhorse Workshop monthly market.
Come join us for some delicious Vietnamese Banh Mi’s – BBQ Pork or Chilli Lemon-grass Tofu. To quench your thirst, we will be serving fresh Mint Limeade and Coconut juice.
There will also be live music, xylophone making classes and lots more.
Lets Eat, Drink and Make Music!
I’ve just tried and tested our vegetarian option for this Saturdays Food Market in Hoxton. It is DELICIOUS!!! Try our pan fried Tofu, marinaded with garlic, lemongrass, chillies and soy. These are so creamy and flavoursome.
Today I felt like having just a simple crunchy salad with a bit of a chilli kick.
Normally when I make ‘Nom’ – the Vietnamese crunchy herb salad, I make lots of it! ‘Nom’ can be eaten on its own, topped with chicken or prawns, or as a side dish with vermicelli. It can also be used as a sandwich filler in the case of Banh Mi (Vietnamese baguette)
For a more Thai / Laotian influence add shrimp paste, chillies, cherry tomatoes.

There are so many variations of The Vietnamese summer roll – whatever takes your fancy really. Mix grilled meat, fish or tofu with crunchy vegetables, vermicelli and fragrant herbs – The result is a beautiful melody of colours and flavours.
