On a sunny Sunday morning Noki and I went for brunch at District Tonkin, a Vietnamese concept store in Copenhagen. We really liked this place and we’d would strongly recommend you to try its traditional Vietnamese baguettes. See the baguette menu at http://district-tonkin.com
District Tonkin is the first concept store in Copenhagen to combine Vietnamese food, art and interior design. You can not only buy food and beverages but also furniture, ceramics or textile in the store– all made in Vietnam. We had a quick chat with the owner of the store. She used to live in a refugee camp before arriving in Denmark in the early 1980’s. Tonkin is the northernmost part of Vietnam and connected to China. During 19 century Vietnam came under French rule. Therefore, French cuisine began to influence Vietnamese food, as in the case of the aforementioned traditional Vietnamese baguettes. We ordered 3 different kinds of Vietnamese baguettes. Marinated pork, grilled beef and Vietnamese sausage. Each cost around USD 9 or EUR 7. We like them all 😉 Note that we have no affiliation with District Tonkin.
