“Rustle & Still Restaurant connects Canadians with the entire culinary and coffee culture in Vietnam, where everything is simple and convenient. In this modern life, people are too busy and we want to create a space where they can relax after work and study”, Tri Ngo (32 years old) confided one of the reasons why he decided to open Rustle & Still. According to Tri Ngo, who studied economics at York University in Toronto, Vietnam is the second-largest coffee producer in the world, and Rustle & Still is proud to use coffee beans imported from Tri's homeland.

“I just wanted to share with everyone about my childhood memories. When I was a child in Vietnam, I used to eat banh mi before going to school. Every morning in this restaurant, the work of making banh mi reminds me of the times when my family members in homeland prepare my banh mi”, Hang Vu, who worked at a pharmaceutical company before quitting her job to open Rustle & Still said.
