Vipho, which specialises in Vietnamese cuisine, is one of my favourite restaurants in Frankfurt. The atmosphere and service are great, but most importantly, the food keeps me going back for more (See my previous reviews here and here).
Here’s a short interview with Vipho’s friendly owner, Mr Hung Quach, so that we can all learn a bit more of this fabulous place to check out in Frankfurt.
1. How long have you been running your business in Frankfurt?
We started our business in autumn 2012.
2. What motivated you to set up Vipho in Frankfurt?
People know Asian food such as Chinese and Thai cuisine, but not many people know Vietnamese food. We believe that Vietnamese food is healthy and is good enough to be compared with other cuisine. We are proud to bring delicious food to more people.
3. Where do you get your ingredients from?
We do get certain Asian ingredients from Vietnam directly because of its quality and flavour. This is very important as such ingredients have a great impact on the food we serve, especially the soup. As for other ingredients, we source them from local Asian food suppliers. As for meat and vegetables, we purchase them from local suppliers to ensure that the products are fresh.
4. What do you love about your business?
Seeing hungry people enjoying the food until the bowl is empty. And most importantly…seeing those customers return to Vipho!
5. What is your secret to keeping customers coming back?
Only serving the food what you would eat yourself or serve to your friends and family. Do not serve anything else that you or others won’t eat. We treat our customers like our friends and explain details of the dishes if they are unsure.
