New Vietnamese street food pop up announces city-centre opening date
Union Street is set to welcome an all-new Vietnamese Street food pop-up that promises to bring the streets of Ho Chi Minh to the popular city-centre co working hub.
Mong-Ta, which already boasts a successful business in London, catering on music video productions for the likes of Liam Gallagher, James Arthur and Rag’n’Bone Man, now plan to bring their delicious sounding menu to Sheffield, starting with a soft launch on Friday 2 July.
Their menu, which includes Vietnamese staples such as coconut chicken curry, vegan sweet potato curry and Bun noodle boxes, uses family recipes passed down from owner Eric Wan’s grandma, which is where the name ‘Mong Ta’ comes from.
The family-run business was started in East London by Eric, who’s grandmother resided in Saigon (better known today as Ho Chi Minh) during times of war and poverty, before seeking refuge in the UK.
Eric said: “Growing up, I was lucky enough to eat the food she cooked, and it only makes sense to share that experience with the world.
“Simplicity is our ethos. We combine fresh ingredients with family recipes to provide you with authentic flavours from the humble streets of Vietnam.”
Following their success in the Big Smoke they are excited to be bringing their ethos back to their hometown of Sheffield. Mong Ta’s Kerre Chen added: “We are super stoked to bring this family passion project to life in our hometown of Sheffield, we’re all massive foodies so doing something like this was only a matter of ‘when’, not ‘if’.”
