Chef Pezar’s home recipe of ‘homesmoked baby back ribs with Kansas City barbecue glaze’ is amongst the biggest favorites. Chit Chat at The Café is a great place to experience authentic Vietnamese cuisine with the reintroduction of some local classics, prepared with the freshest of ingredients, such as steamed chicken with onions & Vietnamese herbs, braised caramel prawns with fish sauce & spring onions clay pot or Bun Cha and more.
