A Fresh, Delicious Take On Vietnamese Coffee From Melbourne | Coffee News | Scoop.it

is a bespoke new restaurant on Carlisle Street in the beachy, sunny St. Kilda neighborhood of Melbourne. The creation of dining industry veterans Rene Spence and Dai Duong, this spot serves up a modern take on classic Vietnamese cuisine — think crispy pig ear banh mi, or a lemongrass & coconut marinated scotch fillet. Uncle’s style of modern Vietnamese extends to their coffee program as well, as the restaurant offers a delicious, noteworthy take on the classic Vietnamese-style ca phe sua da made with Market Lane Coffee, condensed milk ice cream, and a Technivorm Moccamaster.

Both Spence and Duong share a love for detail, and Uncle reflects that. The pair enlisted the help and expertise of other industry professionals, including Foolscap Studio (the designers behind Patricia Coffee Brewers), and Bowen Holden, who is the founder of Patricia. Mr Holden has worked with Spence & Duong  previously, and their mutual understanding of quality service led to Holden lending a hand in creating Uncle’s singularca phe sua da service.
