Big news! A new site of popular restaurant Vietnamese Street Kitchen is due to open at Birmingham’s iconic Bullring next month.
Independently owned and family run, the new VSK restaurant joins the Resorts World venue and replaces the (now closed) Brindleyplace venue.
Due to open in November, the new Bullring site will be set over 2 floors and includes an upstairs bar as well as large dining space below. There’s also a heated outdoor terrace to accommodate the new tier two restrictions. Diners will be able to enjoy authentic Vietnamese cuisine as well as light bites, cocktails and takeaway options.
Work is underway to convert the space previously occupied by the Handmade Burger Co chain that closed at the start of the year. The new venture will create over 30 jobs for Birmingham.
VSK’s Operations Manager Oliver Ngo says the move is a dream come true for the family, having been looking to open at the Birmingham landmark for some time.
“We’re delighted to add to our restaurant portfolio, especially during 2020 – a difficult time for the hospitality industry and our fellow Brummies. The decision to move from Brindleyplace to Bullring makes sense in the current climate, with less people working in offices, but I’ve been looking to have a restaurant in Bullring for some time and it’s exciting seeing it all coming together.
“I’m Birmingham born and bred and love our city – I want to contribute something outstanding to it as well as showcase the joy of Vietnamese food. Guests can expect fresh food, innovative drinks and friendly service, whether they’ve popped in for a long lunch or an after work cocktail.
“We’re assembling a great team back and front of house and the renovation work with Faber Designs – the same interior design company behind Adam’s, Harborne Kitchen and Folium – is coming along nicely. We’re sure this is going to be really special and nothing like what the Bullring as seen before.”
Vietnamese Street Kitchen will join only a handful of other independently owned venues in and around Bullring Birmingham, including Indian Streatery Express.
Oliver says cooking was always a passion in his family and recipes for popular dishes (such as the customer favourite Beef & Lemongrass curry) have been passed down from generation to generation, with four generations of recipes giving Vietnamese Street Kitchen a totally unique menu.
The focus of the new menu is sharing street food and small plates creating a Vietnamese tapas-like experience for guests. Classics such as Pho and Bun Cha Ha Noi will be available too.
Vietnamese Street Kitchen is due to open to guests mid November 2020 and bookings will be live ahead of the opening.
