|Bright & sunny day! Saigon view from my balcony|
Exactly in the corner of these two streets; Nguyễn Du and Hai Bà Trưng, there is the sign of this residential complex that I treated like “Graduation Monument”. I took some of my Indonesian visitors to pose in front of this “Monument” as sign of their graduation in Saigon.
The first time I visited this city was two years ago before I eventually moved. Highlands Coffee was still located at Kumho Office building behind this apartment.
But when I arrived, the same area was under renovation with Coffee Bean sign -J Countless, I visited this café.
Kumho Link was also under renovation when I arrived. I used to peep to check when things would be finished -J
This Link is strategically located in between the Hotel and the Residence.
It is very convenient to go there especially when raining.
There are many restaurants including Tiếp thị gia đình Supermarket that has ready-to-eat meals, and franchises like MOF or Ministry of Food with Japanese food and Japanese Sushi Bar which we became regular customer.
|Chawan mushi, my favorite|
Our SOP (standard operating procedure) in Sushi Bar is to order tuna/salmon sashimi, edamame, lunch package of grilled Sanma/Saba fish or the black bream fish, and grilled mushrooms. Một ly trà đá và một ly trà nóng. One ice tea and one hot tea for drink, and a glass of Sapporo draft beer once a month.

Hard Rock Café is always providing the same quality of food and services all around the world. Like it used to be in Jakarta, HRC in Saigon presents good live music with Filipinos Band.
|We're in Korean Booth at International Student Bazaar!|
|Which one is beer and which one is tea?|
Dae Jang Gung is situated the first floor upstairs, opposite the Brotzeit. First time dining at Dae Jang Gung, we had the shabu-shabu package of meat, vegetable and mushroom. Second time I went there with Tomoko my Japanese friend, we sat inside the cubicle which is decorated so Korean, cute… I noticed that in Korean restaurants, guests get “sweet iced cinnamon” as after meal drink. So fresh!

Let’s have chicken feet!

You should see the expression of my loved one every time I said so! LoL.. But he likes other Dim Sum on the all you can eat Dim Sum brunch menu at Yu Chu Chinese Restaurant.

My favorite dish is the Risotto. Once they had Risotto promotion and I had Truffle Mushroom Risotto. Miam! J'aime les truffes! -J Basilico thin and crispy pizza has been our favorite too. Seafood pizza and four cheese pizza are our favorites!

Lunch time is always crowded with working people from surrounding office buildings. It is good to see energetic crowd from the glass wall – if I passed this place on my way to my Vietnamese class. One day in June, this is where I took my girlfriends for birthday lunch - which unfortunately was also my farewell -L
