Green Papaya, a Vietnamese restaurant, opened their new restaurant in Hoxton early December. Its only a 3 minute walk from the overground!

I was invited to the grand opening since I helped design their website ^^ They serve really good food! If you’re in the Hoxton or Hackney area, and feeling hungry, be sure to check Green Papaya out!

The atmosphere was good

The decor had a rustic feel, similar to Jamie Oliver’s chain, but had a lot of Vietnamese photos from the broadcasting station archives (the manager has contacts). He hired some very good interior designers.

Squids, bbq lamb and soft shell crab

The evening was bustling and some passers-by came in to get a table but had to be turned away since it was a private party. So I’m sure they’ll be really busy ^^

Deliciousness!!! I devoured it all.

I enjoyed my evening and ate a lot. We also managed to take some good shots for the website and Facebook page. I felt bad that I hadn’t bought a congratulation gift though. How could I have forgotten?! I feel ashamed U.U

Have you had Vietnamese cuisine before? What’s your favourite cuisine? I have only had Vietnamese food whenever I’m with my Vietnamese friend – so weird.

  • I LOVE VIETNAMESE FOOD!! We have quite a few here in my area because we are known for having such a multicultural range of foods. I’ve always loved the rice dishes with the lemongrass chicken.

    That restaurant looks sooo good! Too bad I’m all the way in Canada LOL.
