You know you’re Asian when you have to dislocate your jaw to eat a #SummerRoll 😂 When making a summer roll for yourself, it won’t always be too pretty... but I can guarantee it will be MAHUSIVE!!! 😋 xxx
I couldn’t resist! The 🍍 was just too juicy! 😋 Today I decided to have it Viet snack style: Sprinkled with chili salt #MuoiOt along with some sour and beautifully crunchy ambarella #TraiCoc. Have you tried it this way before?
I absolutely LOVE 🍍!! So, something refreshingly delicious for today’s chef’s special at @the_little_viet_kitchen!!! Crispy organic confit duck watermelon salad, with a tamarind & pineapple salsa dressing... yum! 😋 What’s your favourite pineapple recipe? I’d love to know! ☺️xxx
London foodies, I need your help! 🙈
Look Grandpa and Grandma I’m on ‘VietnamTV’ 📺!!! @the_viet_kitchen is going to be featured in a segment about winning ‘Best restaurant in England 2019’ at @thegoldenchopsticksawards 🥇A super proud moment for the LVK family and a real honour to be flying the Vietnamese flag for food in England.
They will be filming this evening (Fri 23rd), at the restaurant and I really want it to be crazy full so Grandpa and Grandma back in Vietnam can be super proud of me (and show off to their friends). However, annoyingly, it’s the August Bank Holiday weekend, i.e. the slowest weekend of the year 😑! Now, not only have they never heard of a bank holiday in Vietnam but it’s pretty much always summer there too, so it will be kinda hard to explain.
So... If you haven’t left London for the beach this weekend, please come to the restaurant for a feed on Friday evening. You’ll be making a couple of very old and very lovely Vietnamese farmers, very happy 😇☺️🥰Thank you! Xxx
I have a feeling it’s going to be a GREAT DAY!!! Sending 💖to you! 🥰xxx @the_little_viet_kitchen

Love can be shown in many ways. When extravagant gifts were not an option, she expressed them through the dishes she put on the table for her family. The ingredients may not have been sophisticated, nor presented too luxuriously, but oh my, the smell of those delicious home cooked Vietnamese treats always let me know how much my mummy loved me (and my siblings… but mainly me of course #FavouriteChildProblems). _
She cooked with creativity, modesty and love. She stayed strong like it was her duty, loved like it was a blessing and lived to pave the way for her children. My toughest critic, my masterchef... my mummy Pham! ❤
Today she turns 65, yet so soooo much more to give. Her passion, dedication and love inspires me everyday. This beautiful photo was taken by @robertosatta_ a few weeks ago at the @natgeotraveluk Food festival where she totally rocked @the_little_viet_kitchen’s street food stall! I am the person I am today mainly because she’s my mummy! 🥰

Should be sleeping, but instead I’m thinking about these #BanhCuon pork rice rolls! 🙈
