One Thousand Flavours
Vietnam Tourism’s slogan “Vietnam – The
Hidden Charm” is especially poignant for
its food scene. Throughout our beautiful
country, there are and many tastes, flavours,
textures, and settings to discover.
Inspired by the iconic French movie “Indochine”,
the newly opened Indochine restaurant in Saigon
promises to the deliver true flavours of Vietnam
in a 1819 colonial villa. On offer are the tastes
of three regions, such as the sweet flavours of
Vietnam’s south, the salty hints of the north,
and spicy kicks from the middle of our country.
Traditional Vietnamese street food is served here
with a twist, all the way through to late dining,
with some modern classics like Chicken Soup In
Steamed Pumpkin, Spring Rolls with Clams, or
Chicken in Clay Pot with Fermented Purple Rice.
If you adore European cuisine, Romeo & Juliet
at The Reverie Saigon should be on your list
of unique dining experiences. With a fabulous
wine list, impeccable service, and reasonable
prices, guests will quickly forget that they are in
Vietnam, and will feel transported into an opulent
Venetian palace. The restaurant’s Octopus Salad,
its Seafood Stew, and the Osso Buco are “musttry”
items, and so is the Tiramisu – made freshly
right in front of you.
Other new places to sample are Le Corto, Stellar,
Café Cardinal, and Basta Hiro, all of them in
Saigon, and together with the many classic
dining places in our city make up the highlights
of this, our 11th Edition of Gourmet Vietnam. Let’s
explore Vietnam with the eyes and taste buds of
a food lover, whether for a casual business lunch,
or a formal first date.
Vietnam’s dining experience will always be one of
our country’s hidden charms. Bon appetite!
