Christchurch’s Best Vietnamese Eats

Vietnam To Go recently opened in central Christchurch among the other St. Asaph Street container restaurants and cafés. The eatery is serving up authentic and flavourful Vietnamese staples.

It’s been almost two years since my travels to Vietnam and I was seriously missing the freshly prepared pho and bánh mì joints that lined every street. As soon as I leave a place, I suddenly crave all of the food!

Nancy and I happened upon Vietnam To Go by chance, whilst on a midday coffee mission. Distracted from our flat whites, we stumbled upon this small eatery. The menu at Vietnam To Go isn’t overwhelming, rather it focuses on the essentials: pho, bánh mì, bún trộn (vermicelli salad), fresh spring rolls and Vietnamese coffee (hot or cold). We couldn’t make up our minds, so decided to share a pork bánh mì and chicken bún trộn alongside Vietnamese coffees (complete with sweet condensed milk). All items are made fresh to order, perfect for a quick lunch. Needless to say, we’ll be back again soon!

Vietnam To Go doesn’t have a website yet (as far as I can tell), but you can find them just behind Steampunk Laboratory on 270 St. Asaph Street.
