One of Bangkok’s hippest community malls is home to the new Vietnemese eatery inspired by grandma’s secret recipe
Riding on the 20-year success of his parents’ Vietnamese restaurant, Viehalong, Pratchya Vilaipol is venturing on his own with an eatery that focuses on street cuisine from Southern Vietnam. Geared towards the younger generation, Muiné, named after a resort town in the southeast of Vietnam, features industrial décor in a contemporary, loft-style setting.
The kitchen takes inspiration from the cookbook of Pratchya’s grandmother. Sacred, age-old secrets have been revived to create Muiné’s versions of bánh mì (Vietnamese sandwiches) and pho (Vietnamese noodle soup). The menu also features classic Vietnamese street food such as vermicelli beef shank stew, fried calamari and ca phe sua da (Vietnamese iced coffee). For us, the rib-eye pho and cold cut- and pâté-stuffed bánh mi rise above the rest to become early favorites.
