More modern and minimalist than some of its neighbours in Kingsland Road’s Vietnamese wonderland, this cheery, colourful outfit also stands out from the crowd with its signature ‘bún’ salads – steamed rice vermicelli and herbs dressed with pungent ‘nouc cham’ fish sauce and served with all manner of toppings ranging from grilled meats to lemongrass-infused tofu. The menu also takes in Hanoi-style street-food dishes, plus small plates and sides (spring rolls, grilled pork in betel leaves, salt-and-chilli ribs etc). Alternatively opt for a bánh mì (baguette) or a bowl of steaming pho. Zingy fresh flavours, big portions, speedy service, low prices and BYOB – what’s not to like! One tip: arrive early or be prepared to wait in line.
