It was like a year ago since our Vietnam Trip. Still loving the experiences we had together.
Eating French in Vietnam. No doubt there is a lot of French restaurants in Vietnam, or specifically in Ho Chi Minh City because the city is influenced by the french cultural during the France & Spain colonial occupation of Vietnam during 1859. Thanks to Sin and Ivan for doing the research for the itinerary and of coz to hunt down one of the authentic French Restaurant in town.
AUGUSTIN it says. I know… forgot to take pic of the signboard and i am like searching the whole google for restaurant to match the interior of the restaurant just to find out the name.. until… suddenly thought of rose’s post and danggg!!! She got the photo with the signboard.
FML for wondering around google for so long. Muahahaha! Thanks Rosie!
One of the bad side of delaying your post is… you forgot the names of the dish you ordered like a year ago. Hehehe! So just bare with my poor imagination 🙁
But one of the elements i remembered very clearly is.. The french bread is super awesome. The bread is soft and dense in the inside but hot and crunchy on the outside. With the magic butter on top…. cant remember how many baskets we finished. Hehehe!
And a must try in Hcmc — The Saigon Lager
Started off with some soups to share :
French Traditional Onion Soup
Soup to share as well : Ratatouille
And a recommended appetizer — Assorted cheese platter
I had the signature duck breast with orange sauce. I personally love this dish. The breast meat is perfect pink, juicy and tender with a pinch of sourish blast on the orange sauce. Yums!
I cant remember who order which so.. well.. just the food solo!
Duck breast with mushroom sauce. This one is more creamy in taste
Duck breast with ginger sauce.
Pan fried salmon fillet in Bearnaise sauce.
Beef steak with black pepper sauce. A common order in most of the restaurants
Medium rare? Medium? I prefer it to be a lil bit more pinkish
and Spaghetti with clams
Epic moment when everyone is a millionaire in Vietnam now.. A meal that cost us 3.6 milion
MUAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! *i can haz a million dollar dinner* thankiuk rosie for the pic. *steal*
