Kêu does the best banh mi in London. If you’ve never tried one, a very simple way to say it is that a banh mi is basically like if a crunchy baguette and an Asian salad had a baby. A baby that tastes better with hot sauce. It’s the perfect lunchtime meal, and while we prefer the classic sandwich, the roast pork is also a good call. Kêu also serves a brilliant chicken soup, and the seats at the window are perfect for chilling and watching the Shoreditch wildlife.
