Banh Bao Brothers
Banh Bao Brothers is bursting on to Leake Street Arches, and we’re bringing Vietnam with us. Smuggling in new flavours from the old country, you’ll find familiar favourites with a twist, vigour and freshness you never knew they had, and dishes you’ve never heard of bringing you back to the flavours you know and love.
The history of food is written by grandmas, and we think we’ve got one of the best: Madame Bay. Her secret recipes were developed with care, love, and a healthy dose of cheekiness – all important ingredients when you’re cooking a banquet for 13 children every day!
Ray, our head chef, co-founder, and one half of the Banh Bao Brothers, is Madame Bay’s last student. Together, we will be honouring her legacy, continuing her legend, and keeping the flavours alive in London.
In 2008, infamous Street Artist Banksy organised the ‘Cans Festival’ in the Leake Street Tunnel solidifying its reputation within the street art community. The festival brought together 30 artists who adorned the walls with their work, transforming a piece of dull city landscape into a vibrant and exciting art gallery. Since then, the tunnel has become a haven for artists around the world, keen to leave their mark on the city. As one of the only legal walls in the UK, everyone is welcome to express their creativity on this constantly changing canvas.
The #LeakeStLIVE blog offers insight into both urban culture and the local area. The ‘Ten Top…’ series highlights the artists and artwork in the graffiti community, ‘A Brief Intro To…’ offers a simple overview of wider topics of interest and #HumansOfLSA introduces some of the characters living and working in the local area.
