Papaya Verte is run by self-trained chef Jaki Clibbon, an orphan of Vietnam who grew up in Melbourne, Australia and is rediscovering traditional Vietnamese flavours through travel, friendship and a little bit of trial-and-error.

"Pho & Rolls" is a street food style service of rice noodle soup in either 6-hour slow cooked beef or vegetable broth (Pho) and crispy kohlrabi, taro and mung bean spring rolls (Cha Gio).  Each individual will be provided with their own table setting and utensils, plenty of fresh herbs, pickles and dipping sauces.  This meal will be offered in both a meat/seafood option and a vegetarian option and is the chef's personal representation of a home cooked Vietnamese meal.
