Many of you might not know that the Czech Republic is home to the third largest Vietnamese diaspora in Europe. The history of the Vietnamese immigrants into the country goes back to communist times, but it has only been quite a recent phenomenon that we have been enjoying one of the perks of the Vietnamese culture and that is its fantastic cuisine. For a long time, the Vietnamese restaurants would keep offering the “chicken of three flavors” kind of dishes perhaps thinking nobody would be interested in the real traditional food of Vietnam. Thank goodness that has changed.
Cafefin is not so much of a restaurant as a café, but even if you come in hungry, you can devour one of their Bánh mìs and choose from a variety of fillings from an egg omelette, beef and avocado to tofu for the veggie eaters. Cafefin is related to Pho Vietnam, an excellent bistro located just a few doors down on the same street. You could also start off there and leave Cafefin for dessert, but beware! At that point, your stomach might be too full for that!
