I had been spoiled with the thin and crunchy pizza at Basilico @ Intercon. However, when a friend mentioned about this Japanese pizza place, and the story that it is prepared by Japanese chef and we can sit in the Teppanyaki table, mmm…
It is cutely situated in a secluded road in Le Thanh Ton in District 1. If you know the small road next to Thai Express in Le Thanh Ton, just walk along until the end of the road, turn left until the end of the road again – it’s a dead-end road - and that where 4P’s is on the left.
This place has been my favorite since the first visit. Reservation is required, as this place gets full easily, especially for dinner. Good service, it’s much better comparing to general service standard in HCMC restaurants.

|Yummy pasta, I can't recall the toppings|
|I think this is Spagetti Bolognese|
Don’t hesitate to have hot chocolate cake for dessert. Taste the chocolate cake melted in your mouth…

That’s where my Indonesian hangout friends and I went for my farewell dinner… I was sad to say good bye but at least we got the chance to enjoy food together -J. Terima kasih atas persahabatan kita teman2… Persahabatan bagai kepompong, lho kok malah nyanyi -:) Sampai jumpa lagi…
Thanks to our Japanese couple friends, we were invited to come to Ebisu in 35 Bis Mac Dinh Chi street in District 1. The highlight about this restaurant, in their opinion, is the home-made fresh Udon (type of thick Japanese wheat-flour noodle).
It is Japanese restaurant and the decoration confirms that indeed it’s Japanese. The servers speak Japanese to me #clueless.
We can hear the welcome greeting every time guests come to the restaurant; "Irasshaimase!" I used to catch it as “Mase-mase”. Until Agnes my friend who used to live in Tokyo said that such word didn’t exist! Her 3 year old daughter pronounced it exactly the same like I did.

The good thing about going to Japanese restaurant with Japanese friends; no worries about the menu -:)
|Another type of hot Udon|
All what they ordered is good; tasty Japanese tofu salad with sesame seed dressing, good yakitori (but yakitori is only available for dinner) – my favorite one is the chicken yakitori meatball (brown color and tastes a bit sweet), fried chicken with tartar sauce, chicken stew with lotus stew…
|This is the yummy chicken yakitori meatball|
What else? Konnyaku! They have arm root paste with miso sauce; it’s fried konnyaku and tastes sweet. Good fresh home-made Udon indeed!
