The owner of a new Vietnamese street food firm was taken by surprise after selling out at her first-ever event in just two hours.

Fiona Quan-Lee started the Viet Bowl to bring the food she grew up eating to the people of Norfolk.

Miss Quan-Lee, whose parents are from Vietnam, is originally from the Wirral and moved to Attleborough four years ago.

The 29-year-old launched the street food company at the start of the year to gear up for the summer and get all her events organised.

"I had my first event last week and the response was so unexpected," Miss Quan-Lee said.

"It was just me at Morley Village Hall and I completely sold out in two hours and had to close early.

"I didn't think such a small location would be so busy but people really turned out.

"The spring rolls were really popular - people kept coming back for more - as was the satay chicken and all the feedback was so positive."

The Viet Bowl is based on the Vietnamese street food that Miss Quan-Lee has fond memories of.

The menu includes £7.50 bowls of steamed rice or cold noodles with satay chicken and pork or spring rolls topped with nuoc mam dressing and crispy shallots. Wymondham & Attleborough Mercury: Owner of the Viet Bowl, Fiona Quan-LeeOwner of the Viet Bowl, Fiona Quan-Lee (Image: Viet Bowl)

Miss Quan-Lee added: "Because Vietnamese food isn't that common I wasn't sure how it would be received but people really enjoyed it.

"This is just going to be seasonal for me so I'm going to take the feedback and use it to inform the menu next year. I already have so many ideas."

The Viet Bowl has events throughout the rest of the summer including Summer Fest by the English Distillery, Old Buckenham Country Park and Tuddenham Nursery.
