Three of Melbourne's culinary stalwarts are teaming up to reimagine Sunday brunch, for a very good cause.
On July 22, Hanoi Hannah, Lune Croissanterie and Industry Beans will raise much needed funds for the Royal Children's Hospital, when they dish up a special Hanoi-meets-Melbourne brunch feast, at Hanoi Hannah's New Quarter site on Swan Street.
Kicking off the Good Morning Vietnam feed will be one of Lune's legendary, buttery croissants — teamed either with one of Hanoi Hannah's signature, spring roll-topped bloody marys, or a specialty Viet-style coffee, designed especially for the event by your mates at Fitzroy specialty coffee roaster Industry Beans.
After that, you'll get to choose between a classic egg and bacon banh mi, a congee of winter greens topped with a Chinese doughnut, or the banh xeo (Vietnamese pancake) loaded with smoked trout, salmon roe and crème fraîche.
The brekkie will set you back $40 and, as staff will be volunteering their time, 100 percent of proceeds will go to the Royal Children's Hospital.
There are three sittings available on Sunday, July 22 — 9-10.30am, 10.30am-noon and 12-1.30pm — and tickets are on sale now.
