Making your wares more accessible can be a canny business move -- for instance, now that she's in Holby, we don't even have to go to the cinema to see all that Patsy Kensit has to offer. Shortening the distance between chow and you, Keu!
Just opened in Old Street by an East London Viet resto team, Keu's their first attempt at a deli in a space laid out with bare & black-glazed brick walls, tile floors, black wood furniture, and dangling low wattage light bulbs encased in glass boxes, ensuring the minimalist amount of illumination. The stay-or-go eats start out with made-to-order bahn mi, from the classic Keu (pork belly, ham terrine, chicken-liver pate), to one with spicy roast duck w/ coriander, to the Bahn Mi Bi, whose smoked ground rice & pickled daikon come smothered in shredded lardo, as opposed to shredded Lando, but how could he compete with a guy who's always listening to sweet guitar solos on his giant earphones? Heartier nosh (including daily specials) sees the likes of pork meatballs & 'shrooms, Saigon beef brisket w/ star anise & cinnamon, crispy pork belly w/ steamed rice, and tomatoes & anchovies w/ slow-cooked Scottish sardines, a delightful fusion of "kicking Southern Imperialists out of your country" flavors.
Alongside regular soft drinks & juices, there's a wide selection of exotics, from ultrasweet Viet-drip coffees, to artichoke teas, avocado/ yoghurt/ agave smoothies, and pennywort juice; take-home imports include Sriracha hot sauce, instant noodles, taro chips, and a condensed milk brand called "Longevity" -- something Patsy doesn't need, 'cause she's already gonna Live Forever.
