The new face of Saigon dining appears to be in the form of cheap eats in a cool, clean, contemporary setting. Tib Express is one such place. A step up from popular chains like Wrap & Roll and Pho 24, it offers Vietnamese snacks and street fare in a classy setting.
We tried a random selection of fresh rolls and rice noodle based dishes, including Hue rolls with pork and prawn (presented like sushi rolls) and another wrapped in mustard leaves, which provided a slight wasabi flavour, minus the heat.
Fresh and flavoursome food aside, the decor is cool (think polished concrete floors, an open kitchen, lots of white and warm wood) and the vibe is busy and fun – a great place for a quick and tasty lunch!
