Nope, your fellow diners aren’t taking a test – they are customising their Vietnamese meal boxes on cleverly designed wipeable menus. Choose your preferred rice, main, vegetable, salad and soup and it’ll all get assembled in a lacquered bento box for one. It’s hard not to agonise over the available options: do you want caramelised pork belly, beef in betel leaf, caramelised salmon or stuffed tofu? The only letdown is soup served in a sad looking takeaway tub. The bun cha vermicelli with lemongrass pork is winner too. Also be prepared to queue: this street stool eatery gets packed out at nights and on weekends.
