Upon entering this Vietnamese Bistro, first of a kind in a country where delicious food is not necessarily thought of in the same line as wine, one is whisked off to another world.
A world of good-natured propaganda where slogans are replaced by easy-going dietary advice such as “Mỗi ngày ta chọn mọt món ăn” (“Every day we chose a new dish”), an echo to “Mỗi ngày tôi chọn một niềm vui” (“Every Day I Choose a New Joy” by Trinh Cong Son, Vietnam’s most famous composer, songwriter and poet).
All elements of design are locally sourced and produced by Vietnamese craftsmen and women, including the propaganda art mural.
The menu, with its already famous various spring rolls, features simple, wholesome, yet incredibly flavourful food prepared with the best and freshest of ingredients.
The originality lies not only in the composition of the dishes (think 100% Vietnamese ingredients, envision Vietnamese home cooking “redesigned” and stay well clear of fusion) but also in the presentation. Our rolls are cut into mouth-sized bites that make them easy to share and a pleasure to eat and are more reminiscent of sushi than the familiar large lumps of invisible food we have grown so accustomed to be served.
The desserts are a blend of traditional and modern with Marou dark chocolate (Vietnam’s one and only) fondue, home-made soursop and sugar cane ice-cream and banana in crunchy sticky rice.
Our wine list was composed by Vietnamese and French connaisseurs and all selections were made while sampling the menu with our own Chef along with other Vietnamese chefs.
