HIDDEN away from the busy La Ramblas, this small Vietnamese café in Barcelona is a gem in disguise.
Popular with the locals, Bun Bo serves a cheap and cheerful three course menu for just €10 in a quirky Vietnamese setting. With a choice of options on their set menu, customers can sample authentic Vietnamese food for a small price. If that doesn’t wet your taste buds, the €3.50 cocktails will…
A light starter, the prawn and pork rolls proved to be a great foundation for the courses that followed. Wrapped in rice paper, the rolls were stuffed with lettuce, herbs and vermicelli and complemented this unusual combo well, although it tasted a little plain. The cashew nut dipping sauce was this dish’s saviour.
A safe option, the chicken noodles was a winner all round. Made from a mix of fresh vegetables and delicious wok fried noodles, this course was a very filling and healthy choice.
A tad displeasing to the eye, the coconut pudding was an unexpected surprise. With a sweet mango sauce, this cold dessert was the perfect finishing touch to a lovely three course meal.
With an excellent waiting service and good for value food, Bun Bo is a great place to escape from the touristy areas and is a definite must-visit if you plan on heading to Barcelona.
