Cuisine: Vietnamese

Broken rice (com tam) originally consisted of grains which were broken during the process of harvesting and cleaning the rice. Traditionally eaten by the Vietnamese working class as it was cheaper to buy, broken rice gained favour in wider circles due to its unique flavour and texture. Today, broken rice is softer in texture than it’s cast-off ancestor and has become distinctly Vietnamese.

Brokenrice Vietnamese Restaurant aims to celebrate all of what Vietnamese cuisine has to offer – fresh, vibrant ingredients and delicious flavour profiles – with a contemporary approach. We are continually striving to present classic dishes using modern cooking applications and local, sustainable ingredients.
