The Franco-Viet bakery serves a selection of freshly baked pastries with an Asian twist, such as its matcha green tea and mango croissants, and uses a continental staple in its bánh mì baguette sandwiches, filled with inspired ingredients including butter nut chicken and coriander duck confit.

‘MoBa is a way to present my French cultural background together with the Asian influences encountered throughout my travels in Southeast Asia,’ explains co-founder Theodore Charoy.

While recognising bánh mí’s French colonial origins, MoBa celebrates the evolution of Vietnamese bread and pastry by serving up the two cultures side-by-side.
