SquareMeal Review of Banh Banh

Peckham Rye’s unstoppable rise to foodie prominence continues with the addition of this stylish Vietnamese canteen. Bánh Bánh’s Tardis-like dining room is a mix of bare bricks and exposed bulbs up front, with a wood-and-marble counter, sculpted stools, and potted plants; further back is a more make-do-and-mend affair, with petrol-blue or plywood-covered walls. The A4 menu offers ‘smallish’, ‘biggish’ and ‘classic’ dishes – so order starters and mains, or share everything as a family-style feast. A delicately dressed, fresh-flavoured bun noodle salad topped with pork sausages and tofu-stuffed spring rolls demonstrates the subtlety of Vietnamese cuisine; ditto the house ‘pancakes’ (prawn-topped Asian-style tortillas, for wrapping in perilla, mint and lettuce leaves). The best dish was the punchiest: juicy, lemongrass-marinated beef patties cooked in crinkly betel leaves. To drink, eager staff will serve you ice-cold coconut water, eastern-tinged cocktails, or something from the short beer list, which twins Peckham with, er, Saigon.
