Bunn Mee is a little cafe on the main Leederville Oxford Street strip selling Vietnamese street food. Run by Masterchef’s Jenny and her family, it is busy, bustling and friendly, with Jenny working hard to ensure that everybody has what they need.

The main item is bahn mi, the Vietnamese-French fusion baguette rolls with choices of pate, chicken, pork and vegetarian fillings. The cafe also serves Vietnamese favourites such as bun, pho, broken rice, shaking beef, noodle salads and Vietnamese pancake.

We started off with a serve of spring rolls to share, and they were the most perfect spring rolls that I have ever tasted, beautifully crisp with a nice meaty pork filling and sublime dipping sauce. A very nice introduction to the meal.

Juices and drinks are freshly made, my partner chose a fresh pressed orange juice and I chose a young coconut juice. Both were full of flavour.

For main course, my partner chose a bun broth with pork and beef, which was wonderful and very very flavoursome. Accompanied with condiments like beansprouts, lemon, mint, and chilli, he finished every last drop. Jenny’s dad explained the mashed chilli condiment – it’s a special dried chilli mashed with oil, and a particular accompaniment to the bun.

Intrigued by the pancake, I chose it to see how it compared with my homemade Saigon pancakes, and realised that I’ve been doing it wrong. The waiter explained that I need to tear off pieces of the pancake, lay them on a lettuce leaf, add some pickles and mint, and roll them up, dip them in sauce and eat. The lettuce leaves were some kind of wasabi derivative with a lovely mild wasabi flavour that really added to the dish. The turmeric pancake was full to bursting with beansprouts, prawn and pork and it was a nice size too. Absolutely yum.
