I've been fantasising about having a Vietnamese on Bermondsey Street
for years.I went there yesterday - vietnamese fresh rolls are maybe my favourite food. I'd agree with others on here - it's a funny little place that's open at 7am, but not 7pm. Loads of coffee but no jasmine tea. Serving mostly Vietnames bagettes which is disppointing cos you can get sandwiches everywhere.
I wish them the best of luck. The fresh rolls were not the best - the pancake was slimy and the filling was bland, and you're not offered chopsticks yet they're tricky to eat as finger food - but hopefully these are just teething troubles. Take outs early evening would do a roaring trade I think.
No industry links, btw, I'm just a local gut bucket
