All aboard!

In the mood for Bánh mì on a bus? Kimchi on a corner? Then get yourself to Little Ellen Street in Limerick City, where Viko Viko street food has just pulled up.

The big orange bus opened its doors late last week and is already serving up a storm with warming bowls of pho, comforting Korean corn dogs and freshly chopped salads and poké bowls.

Viko Viko is the first Vietnamese and Korean restaurant to open in Limerick, and if the online response is anything to go by there’s definitely an appetite for it.

The interior is deceptively spacious with plenty of room to lay down your burdens after a big Christmas shop, and the bus itself is ideally located for prime people watching while chowing down on your kimchi rice and pancakes. Also if you’re visiting with a fussy eater there’s garlic cheese fries on the menu (a nod to our own national street food dish), but no doubt you’ll win them over with a crispy corn dog or some KFC.

Prices are very reasonable (pho will set you back €11.95, rice bowls between €10.95 and €12.95 with sides, loaded fries, corn dogs and pancakes between €3 and €8) and there are plenty of veggie and gluten free options with most dishes on the menu offering vegetarian alternatives. Definitely worth a visit for all street food lovers!
