SquareMeal Review of
The name is an anagram of ‘love’, and cute Velo’s motto is ‘love making food’ – in this case a line-up of traditional Vietnamese street fodder at very fair prices. It’s a colourful, fun-loving
set-up with a menu that touts various versions of the famous pho noodle soup, banh mi (roast pork ‘baguettes’), vermicelli, summer rolls, crunchy chilli-spiked salads and assorted one-plate dishes
such as lemongrass chicken on rice. To finish, there are some curious desserts involving creamed corn, taro and suchlike, while drinks include special Vietnamese coffee and best-selling Naked
Juices. Velo also has a few techno tricks up its sleeve: ordering is done with the help of electronic touch-screen monitors, and you can check how your food is progressing by consulting another
screen above the counter; you can even keep your payments organised with a special VeloCard.
