Luke Farrell’s banh mi’s are back by popular demand this week. For a limited time only, the pop-up at Arcade Food Hall follows the success of Luke’s Thai restaurant Plaza Khao Gaeng. Each baguette is served warm with a still-crackling crust and filled with pâté, butter mayo, head cheese (pressed ham with offal, tongue and fat), roast pork or fried tofu, and fresh herbs and vegetables (think carrot and mooli vinegar pickle, soused chillies, cucumber, coriander and rau ram). Just for the pop-up, Luke has created a breakfast banh mi, featuring all the trimmings and a fried egg – the ideal way to kickstart your weekend.
