LONDON – Nowadays eating genuine food is still possible in London and the best place to do it is certainly Borough Market, where top London chefs come to buy their ingredients. Among the culinary wonders you can find there, Vietnamese cuisine is truly one of the richest. Bhinn has been working in Borough Market for two months. He prepares a wonderful chicken with sweet potatoes which makes people speechless. The secret is surely its velvety texture: cream and potatoes, combined with spices such as lemongrass, lime leaves, laurel and Garam Masala, create a wonderful sauce which fits perfectly with chicken stew. The sourness coming from lime leaves is well balanced from the sweetness of potatoes and the result is a really fondant meat.
‘If you are looking for the most amazing flavors, you are in the right place’ , said Bhinn while he’s cooking his meals with love and passion.
‘We are here from Monday to Sunday, we start at 7:00 AM and finish at 5:00 PM’
Bhinn is fully busy in Borough Market, but his activity is worth it: £6 for a medium portion. It shows how slow food has become very expensive. The impression is that Borough Market leaves a bittersweet taste in people’s mouths, urging them to realize how genuine slow food has become a luxury.
