‘Halal’ Vietnamese Street Kitchen opens in Birmingham’s BullringHALAL STATUS Halal menu available (prepped & cooked separately) • Alcohol & pork served
We use our best practices not just for Halal, but gluten free and vegans. We use Halal meats and fry it in different oil, soups and grills.
Vietnamese Street Kitchen has opened its second restaurant in Birmingham while having confirmed its Halal status with FtLion.
Having launched in the Bullring following the closure of its first in Brindleyplace last autumn, the independent restaurant offers a separate Halal menu available to view on its website.
While informing FtLion that its “beef and chicken are from Halal butchers”, the Kitchen did confirm that pork was a part of its overall menu.
But Vietnamese Street Kitchen clarified: “Pork is cooked in a separate method and away to beef and chicken dishes [sic],” before adding: “We don’t use alcohol in any dish at all on the menu.”
Halal-friendly Vietnamese restaurants are a rarity!
It further said: “We use our best practices not just for Halal, but gluten free and vegans. We use Halal meats and fry it in different oil, soups and grills [sic].”
Occupying two floors, the family-owned, 140-cover venue, which boasts a heated outdoor terrace, joins its other eatery at Resorts World in Solihull.
The Halal menu is made-up of Street Snacks like Spring Rolls – the family’s grandma recipe – Steamed Bao Buns, Fried Dumplings, and elaborate Vietnamese salads called Goi.
There’s also a number of build-your-own Big Bowls whose base include rice, bun, and salad, as well as Bowls of Pho, which is a classic dish comprising of rice noodles and served with herbs and beef broth.
There is then two Classics to consider: Bun Bo Hue which is a spicy beef rice noodle soup, and a Pho Tai made up of “thinly sliced steak served rare on top of rice noodle soup just like they do in Saigon”, followed by a selection of desserts.
