Benny Lai, owner of Vietnam is opening Vietnam Cafe in West Philadelphia. But it won’t be a carbon copy of the popular Chinatown restaurant.
Unlike Vietnam, Lai’s new Cafe won’t serve cocktails like the “Flaming Volcano.”
On Baltimore Avenue, Lai is aiming for a calmer experience that brings his cuisine closer to some of his patrons.
Lai said he hopes to bring a low-key, highly tasty atmosphere to the new Vietnam Cafe. He says, “We don’t need fast food [here], we need family gourmet.”
