“Jump straight into a Vietnamese inspired eatery on Hamilton’s main street in the form of Banh Mi Caphe. Come evening time the music is loud, the tables are packed and the atmosphere is buzzing. Appealing to young and old, dates, groups and solo eaters, tables and brightly coloured stools are packed close together, transporting you straight to street side in South East Asia. A licenced restaurant, there’s beer and wine and a seductive sounding cocktail list, or house made smoothies and sodas. Steaming, vibrant plates of food piled high are delivered quickly by easy-going staff, and made for sharing - you’ll need to guard your portion carefully if you wish to have it all to yourself. Try the famous Vietnamese baguette with pork, chicken, beef or tofu, or dig into the delicious green papaya salad with prawns and finish it off with spring rolls or save room for the sweets at the end. Recipes have been carefully passed down from generation to generation, all the way from Can Tho to Waikato, and the fresh, healthy and truly tasty dishes are worth traveling for.”
