Vietnamese Restaurant
“Address: 10 Dang Tat, Tan Dinh ward, district 01, HCMC. Cuc Gach Quan is the place where sincere, peaceful and quiet souvenirs can be created in a warm and cozy place, where the true values of a “countryman” are reigning under the motto “eat green, live healthy”, every action designed to demonstrate respect to our environment. Mixing the old and the new to comply to today’s convenient use. Imitating my grandmother, I put chopstick in a Lygo-milk old can for clients to pick them before eating; a natural gesture for them as if they were backing home. The glasses were made after duck eggs racks: I kept the global shape and transposed it in a new material changing a bit their size, giving them an odd but close look. When the weather was hot, I can remember my grandmother giving me rice and black beans infusion to drink. Natural and simple, they are considered now as the “drinks to have” following the general trend of a greener life, simple but sophisticated in their preparation process far from the 30-secs gesture of opening an already prepared bottle. Imitating my grandmother, my chef prepares home-made tofu, home-made pickles; she serves soya-sauce home-made by Ms. Ba & Ms. Bay for they don’t know how to add preservatives, green beans porridge without taking out beans shells as being afraid of denaturing the tastes; and she doesn’t sell fried-bananas for them to be incentives for clients underlining their “core value”. ”

“Very nice place to eat with your family and friends. They offer different Asian dishes aside from Vietnamese cuisine. Serving time is fast and they have a lot of seat for you and your group. Even with a crowded place waiting time to be seated was around 10min.”

Restaurant
“Open-air rooftop with its very impressive garden which boasts stands of corn, lemongrass and other herbs and vegetables. It also offers a stunning view of downtown, particularly in the evening. The food on offer is very traditional Vietnamese, and many of the items on the menu will be recognizable to most. The difference here is the quality of the product and its impeccable presentation.”
