Since opening late last year Mien Tay Battersea has gathered a respectable following and received fantastic reviews, with AA Gill saying his Pho “was heaven – worth going to Battersea for all on its own…the best value for anything cooked in all of Britain and among other compliments “Mien Tay may well be the best Vietnamese restaurant in London”.
Building on their delicious food, Mien Tay has joined forces with Willie Lebus of Bibendum to create The Mien Tay Wine List, a food pairing wine list. Willie has selected a stress-free list of just 14 wines, fizz and sherry, from various artisanal estates including some that grow their grapes organically or bio-dynamically.
The wines on the list come from all over the world and have been specifically paired to the dishes served in the restaurant to compliment both the food and wine.
The compact selection is chosen purely on quality not price and with Mien Tay’s low mark-up policy this makes the wines incredible value for money. As with the ethos of the food pricing Mien Tay may offer the best value wine list in London.
All wines are served in elegant 125ml glasses, 250ml carafes and by the bottle.
Some examples to try are:
Picpoul de Pinet ‘La Cote Flamenc’ Coteaux du Languedoc 2009 paired with Green papaya Salad with Dried Beef
(£3.25 for a 125 ml glass, £5.50 for a 250 ml carafe and £14.50 for a 75 cl bottle)
