Cay Tre Menu sampling

An array of delights served up by Cay Tre’s chef, ahead of the Soho restaurant opening. Vietnamese Kitchen Manager Hieu Trung Bui sent his chef off to Vietnam for a couple of months to discover some new recipes. Among the dishes we enjoyed were Charcoaled Scallops served with Scallion Oil, Chilli and Toasted Peanuts; an incredible ‘Pork Belly Handbag’ which would do Louis Vuitton proud: a succulent Honey & Lemon Roasted piece of Pork stuffed with Curry Leaves and served with Chilli Oil and Fried Shrimps; and a Soft Crab Curry served with delightful Vermicelli Rice pillows. Cay Tre opens this week, on Dean St in London. Prepare to be nourished!

Enough filling for you? Up close and personal with one of Keu’s fine Banh Mi’s: Crispy Lemongrass infused Mackerel with Daikon and Coriander, and a splash of Lime Juice. Exquisite. Keu is part of the Vietnamese Kitchen family.

Congratulations to Hieu, Nghia and the extended Keu family, as the doors opened to the public for the first time today. Not surprisingly, it attracted a reasonable lunchtime queue, with delicious smells of Vietnamese street food wafting out into Old St. Definitely a cut above your average lunchtime fare, with the soon-to-be classic Banh Mi’s complemented by lunch dishes and daily specials including Chicken & Knotweed Salad and Crispy Pork belly with steamed Seasonal Greens on Rice.

Keu opening soon!

I’ve been working on the design for ‘Keu!’ a new Vietnamese Banh-Mi deli due to open shortly on Old St, just opposite Hoxton Square. David Archer Architects has created a beautiful interior space, and Hieu and his team will provide culinary delights which live up to the name of ‘Keu!’ (pronounced kay-o) Vietnamese for ‘that’s fantastic!’
