The audio dining experience, Sonic Phở brings food and stories from Lewisham’s Vietnamese community - the largest in London - together in one unique audio experience hosted at five top Vietnamese restaurants.
We are hosting a live Chef’s demo followed by a supper club in a traditional Vietnamese restaurant. Whilst eating, guests will listen to an accompanying audio story with poetry created by Anna Nguyen and award-winning sound designer Nicola T Chang. To enjoy the story, we
ask that you bring a smartphone and compatible headphones.
“Thao returns home every week to visit her mother. One routine evening, her mother invites her round
for her famous home cooked Chicken Phở, the best in Southeast London, her words not Thao’s.
Mother is obsessed with feeding. However Thao has a different kind of hunger. As she sits down at the table, questions and longing rise from her hot steaming bowl.
A story of redemption, restoration and generational healing that will ripple out across cultures and time. Connect to the food of our motherland and understand more about the person behind the bowl
who cooked it for us.”
You will be taken through a live demonstration, showcasing what goes into making this beloved staple of Vietnamese cuisine. Once the demonstration has finished, you will be guided to enjoy a tasty bowl of Phở at a local partnering restaurant. Whilst eating, guests will listen to an accompanying audio story.
*Phở is a popular noodle soup dish from Vietnam and a firm favourite in Vietnamese restaurants across the world.
A smartphone and headphones are required to take part in this event.Book Tickets
