SquareMeal Review of
The Little Viet Kitchen
This relaxed Islington restaurant offers a strong selection of stomach-warming Vietnamese fare. Suited to those on-the-go thanks to a dining counter, the light-filled space can also accommodate diners looking to while away an evening, thanks to calming white-washed wooden tables and fresh flowers dotted around the place. The curated menu is split between small plates and larger sharing dishes; hungry visitors can choose from starting snacks including whole soft-shell soft tempura crab, and butterfly-style tiger prawns drizzled with a lemongrass soy sauce. Moving on to the kitchen’s heartier options, there’s honey and coconut caramelised chicken breast, and braised beef short-rib, or tofu pho for veggies. There’s a daily-changing dessert selection including the likes of rhubarb and ginger almond crumble, while drinks see wines, sake and cocktails. Sips served in copper jars and the option to buy homemade LVK marinades and sauces adds to this neighbourhood sites local charm.
