One Country 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!
