Ho Chi Minh worked here!

Vietnamese communist revolutionary trained as a chef here.


Ho Chi Minh is most famous for being the founder of the Viet-Minh independentist movement in 1941 and establishing communist control in part of Vietnam in the 1960s.

During his 30 year exile, while in London, in 1914 he trained as a chef here. The popular line is that it can be assumed that he would have cleaned and washed the dishes here!
