A revisit at Le Vietnam for the Turkey and Cranberry Banh Mi

Recently, I was Invited by Lee the owner of Le Vietnam to sample the Turkey and Cranberry Banh Mi which is soon to join the range of Banh Mis offered by Le Vietnam.

Of Malaysian Hawker food and Vietnamese stuffed chicken wings

I have been asked very often why do I always go to Subiaco Station Street Markets for lunch. The answer is simple.
