Restaurants to Try in Ho Chi Minh City / Saigon (Vietnam) for 2018

Restaurants to Try in Ho Chi Minh City / Saigon (Vietnam) for 2018

by La Vie Partagée @ La Vie Partagée

On my recent trip to Ho Chi Minh City (“HCMC” or “Saigon”), my local friends recommended a few of their favorite restaurants (a combination of classics that we highlighted in previous posts and current hot spots). I was able to try a few and loved their recommendations. As many of my friends and colleagues continue to ask me where to eat in Saigon for their upcoming trips, I decided to share this list. Phở Lệ Address: 303-305 Võ Văn Tần, Phường, District 5 / Tel: +84. 3834.4486 This is an oldie, but a goodie with all the locals. When I had a craving for a good bowl of southern phở, my god sister (a Saigon native) and I ventured to Phở Lệ in District 3 (the second location is in District 7). The restaurant is your quintessential phở restaurant with a short menu of the famous noodle soup with a variety of meat toppings. The broth is rich, sweet (from the herbs and fruits) and robust, which can only be achieved from hours of cooking …

Coffee Wonderland at Shanghai’s Starbucks Reserve

Coffee Wonderland at Shanghai’s Starbucks Reserve

by eatprayjade @ eatprayjade

Shanghai’s very own Starbucks Reserve finally opened this past week, and lines are out the door to get into this coffee wonderland. I do find myself intrigued by Starbucks’ unique locations around the world but this time especially, I was enamored by Shanghai’s Starbucks Reserve experience. “The complete and total commitment to the immersive experience of coffee craft” It was indeed an experience to visit, especially since Starbucks Reserve in Shanghai paired up with Alibaba to create an integrative augmented reality (AR) experience through the Taobao APP. Each step of the coffee roasting process can be seen through AR. Even better, it was amazing to listen & watch the overhead ‘Symphony’ pipes transfer roasted coffee beans to the silos. Every time the beans passed through, it sent a satisfying jingle (and a wave of applause) throughout the floor. So what was my first impression? Jam packed, beautifully designed, and full of holiday cheer. I will admit I don’t drink Starbucks often in Shanghai, as I normally opt for local coffee shops. However, the Starbucks Reserve Roastery is definitely …

SISTERS BEAUTY LOUNGE, JBR

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

After a busy few weeks, there is no better way to indulge in a little R&R than spending a few hours at a spa or salon. With an endless amount of options in Dubai, choosing the spot to spend your quiet hours can be challenging – however, I feel like I might have just found the solution to this puzzling problem. With 6 branches pampering women in prime locations across Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sisters Beauty Lounge’s newest salon at Jumeirah Beach Residences in Dubai is by far my favourite spot to chill to date! The stunning branch is quaint and cosy and is conveniently located just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the bustling beachfront of The Walk. From the private mani/pedi pods complete with Apple TV (YES TO NETFLIX!), speakers systems and TVs, to the hair-styling area with hair-washing stations, and gorgeous private treatment rooms – everything is sleek and stylish, decked out with artwork by Cate Parr. With a range of treatments to choose from, the salon offers its signature …

FLAMINGO ROOMS BY TASHAS

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

Winner, winner – we have found one of our favourite dinners! If you, like me, have long been a fan of Tashas in Galleria Mall, then you will fall in love with the new Flamingo Rooms by Tashas. Located on the Turtle Lagoon at Jumeirah Al Naseem, neighbouring other fantastic restaurants such as Il Borro and Black Tap, this vibrant and stylish outdoor hub is becoming one of my favourite spots in Dubai. Let me set the scene for you – it’s a balmy Saturday afternoon on arrival at Flamingo Rooms and the restaurant is flowing with people, enjoying birthdays, baby showers or like me, catching up with my maid-of-honour-to-be over a delicious lunch and a glass of South African champagne. Having only been back a week from Cape Town, it was the perfect spot to dissipate any holiday blues, and with the sun shining outside, we picked a seat by the bay windows.  There are SO many things to love about this spot!

Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice 金峰魯肉飯 – Popular Lu Rou Fan Eatery In Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice is a well-known eatery (at least among the locals) in Taipei that serves one of the most popular Taiwanese dishes, “Lu Rou Fan” otherwise known as Braised Pork Rice). There are several other places in the Roosevelt Road (Luosifu Lu) neighbourhood that serve braised pork rice, but this hole-in-the-wall dining spot has a reputation for being the best in town. The good news is that this place is budget-friendly with reasonably priced dishes that come in big portions. Keep in mind that there is usually a line in front of Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice, especially during lunch hours. Do not expect too much from the interior, as this place is more like casual local eatery than an actual restaurant. The tables are close to one another, and there is a chance that you will have to share a table with other guests. If you are in a hurry, you can always take your food to go. The Braised Pork Rice, priced at NT$30, NT$40, NT$50 (SGD$1.30, SGD$1.80, SGD$2.50) for their small, medium and large bowls, is definitely the signature dish here at Jin Feng in Taipei. The dish is served with a large amount of rice and topped off with a slice of bitter melon and braised pork. One thing to note is that while Singaporeans are used to bowls with loads of meat with less rice. The reverse seems to apply to many Lu Rou Fan stalls in Taiwan where there is very little meat in contrast to rice. I also noticed that other restaurants that offer this dish tend to serve it with more fat than meat, which is not the case here. The draw to me was the savoury sauce on the fluffy rice, when paired with hot soup was...

Sugar Miss – Popular Instagrammable Marble Cube Cake And Marble Cheese Cake At Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] One of Taipei’s most instagrammable dessert café of late has to be Sugar Miss, with photos of their famed Marble Cube Cake trending in several social media feeds (at least the Chinese ones). The Marble Cube Cakes come with varied fillings of matcha, raspberry and taro, available in very limited quantities. Each is priced about NT$240 – 265 (SGD$10.80 – SGD$11.90), considered on the higher side for Taiwan, though Singaporeans should be used to these prices for cakes. Do note there is a minimum expenditure of NT$200 required for each customer, which should be easily met as long as you get a drink. Reservations are recommended, as the café can get very popular during the weekends. As I arrived about 2pm, there were just 2 Marble Cube Cake left. The décor looked rather “Lady M” – all clean, white with marbled tables, and ironically Lady M Taipei is just located a short distance away with a moderately long queue. The entire vibes felt rather ‘cold’ though, without the extreme friendliness you see at other Taipei café places. Other offerings included the best-selling Marble Cheese Cake (NT$190 per slice, SGD$8.50), and Mille Crepe Cakes with flavours of Matcha Milk, Earl Grey, Valrhona Chocolate, Taro and Seasonal Fruit (NT$180 – 230, SGD$8.00 – 10.30). The Marble Cube Cake was certainly a good-looker, different from other conventional cakes, placed on a marbled plate on white table. This café certainly knows about how to get good lighting for optimal photos. Unfortunately, taste wise, it wasn’t the most impressive. It was OKAY. While the top molten layer looked melty, it was solidified and didn’t add much taste wise. Beneath was a chiffon layer and raspberry fillings that didn’t quite flow at all. It was probably just this cake, as I have seen other versions...

The Lunch Lady – Street Food Celebrity Made Famous By Anthony Bourdain, Daily Rotating Noodles Menu At Ho Chi Minh City


DanielFoodDiary.com

Subscribe: [Ho Chi Minh City] A store which piqued my interest while I was researching for Vietnamese street food was The Lunch Lady, which came up as one of the common search results. Many bestowed her with the title of “legendary” street food vendor in Ho Chi Minh. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The Lunch Lady (known as Nguyen Thi Thanh) propelled to fame after being featured on No Reservations. It is a food and travel programme hosted by American chef and TV personality, Anthony Bourdian. The store has since then been patronized by many other food influencers from various countries and garnered them a wide following of international visitor ship. (I looked around and noticed a few more tables with foreigners. Her specialty is noodle soup and interestingly, she has a daily rotating menu which serves only one type of noodle soup every day. Seven days in a week, she can whip up seven kinds of noodle soup such as Bun Thai, Bun Mam and Banh Canh Cua. Totally unheard of to me, and the most common Pho is not even on her menu. I wondered would the idea work in SG if I sell Bak Chor Mee Soup on Mondays, Wanton Mee Soup on Tuesdays, Hae Mee Soup on Wednesdays and etc. The amount of logistics and ingredients to buy! I visited the store on a Friday, and the noodle soup of the day was Bun Bo Hue, which translates to Spicy Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup (VND 40k, SGD$2.40). The bowl of noodle soup felt visually intimidating at first with its bright orange hue, which resembled chilli oil from Mala pot. However, I took my first mouthful but it was nothing like that. I didn’t even found it spicy. A case of being... Continue Reading

Seasonal Vegetarian Fine Dining at Fu He Hui 福和慧

Michelin-starred 福和慧 Fu He Hui is a gem in Shanghai’s fine dining scene. For lunch and dinner, you can select from four different vegetarian prix fixe menus (ranging 380RMB-780RMB), including a seasonal special. For first timers, I would recommend trying the ‘classic’ Fu He Hui menu. From decor to food, Fu He Hui is a gourmand’s oasis in the center of Shanghai city. Come with the expectation that you’ll pay a premium for your meal and prepared to be impressed. *I dined with a party of 4 so the below pictures are a mix of the classic 780 RMB menu and the 580 RMB menu. My dream plate of amuse-bouches. Left is 百叶包, a tofu pouch full of 马兰头, a really fragrant vegetable known as Indian Kalimeris. In the middle is 糖醋“排骨”, classic sweet and sour “pork.” In this case, pork was substituted with king oyster mushrooms wrapped around burdock roots. Lastly, on the right is marinated tofu shaped into a traditional bottle gourd shape. I adored this soup, the consommé had really deep flavors and was an absolute feast for the eyes. Look at …
