Viet Box – Inspired by a blend of Vietnamese cuisine, Viet Box offers a variety of flexitarian food options. The restaurant was born out of the owners’ culinary adventures and their shared love of food. On this occasion, I decided to go for the Banh Mi Burger, which was served with a side of tiger fries (£14). The burger itself was a beyond meat patty, served on a vegan brioche bun. I thought the patty was pretty dry, but the chef did a nice job covering it up with the delicious vegan spicy mayo and sriracha. The sauce did make the burger a little messy to eat, but it was worth it, in my opinion.

The tiger fries were basically Viet Box’s own version of loaded fries. They were topped with hoisin, sriracha, and vegan coconut mayo, fried shallots, and coriander. In addition to the burger + fries combo, I tried the vegan crispy dumplings (£3), which ended up being my favorite part of the meal. They were topped with sriracha, sesame vegan mayo, vinegar, spring onions, and sesame seeds. In my opinion, they were perfection. I will be back to try the vegan bao!
