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 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.
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 ^^
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.
