First class Vietnamese scoff, great service and very, very tasty and authentic, if my memory serves me from my sojourn in South Vietnam, regarding the authenticity that is. Easily walkable from Kings X.

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
