THE HOUSE OF HO
55-59 Old Compton Street, W1 (020 7287 0770; houseofho.co.uk) At this Soho newcomer, choose from summer rolls with pickled vegetables or coconut and lemongrass steamed prawns (£5). The lunchtime ‘one-dish wonders’ are good value (from £6.50
for a bánh mì baguette with pork, chicken pâté and daikon). Chef Bobby Chinn is quite a celebrity in Vietnam and looks set to become one here, too.
