Southeast Asian Plant-Based Street Food Comes to KAMPUS
Bánh Vì, the favorite of the Altrincham market, will take over the KAMPUS bungalow …
Banh Vì are set to bring their captivating Southeast Asian designs to Kampus, taking over the Bungalow from Friday October 8.
Alty’s market favorites will serve their plant creations, inspired and influenced by their favorite street foods from their trip through Southeast Asia.
Wait steaming and fragrant broths; delicious rice bowls; succulent ‘wings’ of crispy mushrooms and ‘Banh Mi’ – their version of Vietnam’s most beloved sandwich – in a menu full of flavor and showcasing the best of plant-based cuisine.
Diners can accompany their choice of a strong signature Vietnamese coffee (hot or iced), as well as a selection of Asian beers, homemade iced teas or traditional infused teas.
Customers will also be able to book to try their hand at cooking as well, with the team organizing the Pho Masterclasses, passing on the secrets of creating unami broth and perfectly spiced summer rolls.
Bánh Vì was co-founded by Harry Yarwood and Jess King. After starting out at Tasty Cow in Altrincham, the couple got to work on a one-way ticket to the best dining experiences Asia had to offer, followed by an extended stay at a vegan retreat in Australia.
Banh Vi was born from this love of adventure. Established in Altrincham two years ago, regulars keep coming back for the bold flavors and textures that defy the expectations of plant-based foods.
Bánh Vì will open from Thursday to Saturday from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. (meal served until 9 p.m.) and Sunday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. (meal served until 7 p.m.), with 30 seats. Starting on Friday October 8, 2021, the residency will run until the end of November.
Guests are advised to book in advance by contacting 07549133392, with limited space for walk-ins.
Bánh Vì co-founder Harry Yarwood said:
“Hot, sweet, salty, sour, bitter – we’ve always strived for the perfect balance of flavors in our creations. Since we started we have won over so many regulars who now return week after week for our appreciation of Vietnamese and Malaysian cuisine.
“Our philosophy has always been to use the best ingredients, to support local suppliers and to deliver amazing and creative menus that people fall in love with, whether or not they are used to eating plant-based foods or not.”
“The vibe of the Kampus community is absolutely perfect for us and we can’t wait to fill the bungalow with people who might experience our Banh Mi sandwiches for the first time.”
The Kampus Gardens and Bungalow are the centerpiece of the community and are permanently open to the public, with the bungalow functioning as a party hall for pop-ups and community groups.
The area is packed with events and will be home to bars, restaurants, cafes and local independent shops from brands such as General Stores, Common & Co / Cornerstone and Bread Flower. This latest residency follows a busy summer of events in Kampus, with Mancunians flocking to the lush gardens for Le Social and Isca Wines.
Residents have already moved into the one and two bedroom apartments in the beautiful new red brick North Block building and the renovated 1960s brutalist tower called The Stack. Along with North’s sister building, South Block and two magnificent Victorian shipping warehouses, Minto & Turner and Minshull House are set to open fully over the next few weeks.
