Drinks & Nightlife

Great drinks, nice ambiance, beautiful people. A little more on the high-end side. You have the option of getting bottle service and your own table (approximately $200-$500) or you can buy drinks a-la-carte and hang out at the bar and still have a ton of fun.

Food Scene

This is not your ordinary food court. It has the feel of a high-end restaurant yet has the price tag of local street food. The food stalls here are from popular restaurants frequented by locals. If you want to try many types of Vietnamese food at the same time, yet are wary about the cleanliness of street food, this is the place to go.

This restaurant is a sidewalk joint that specializes in chicken and chicken pho. However, their beef dishes are pretty amazing too. Try the stir fried beef or chicken pho ("Pho xao bo"= stir-fried beef pho, "Pho xao ga"= stir-fried chicken pho). If you just want healthy proteins then ask for cut up plain chicken (thit ga chat). Squeeze some lime into the salt and pepper they give you and dip in the juicy chicken, I assure you it will be delicious! They open from 6pm until early morning. The restaurant is directly across the street from Bitexco tower and is a 5 minute cab ride from my apartment.

This is my favorite gourmet burger place. One burger costs $5-$9 and they have many creative and delicious creations, including a "Pho burger"! If you're not into burgers, they have amazing salads. I only found this out recently because who goes to a burger place and orders a salad?? But I was blown away by how flavorful and creative they were. They were definitely not boring plain leafy salads but actually delicious and flavorful and I constantly have cravings for them.

Delicious traditional Vietnamese food, the kind that my mom cooks at home. Clean and affordable too. :)

A romantic and more high-end fusion Western-Vietnamese restaurant. This is where you can take someone on a romantic dinner date. They also have cheaper breakfast menu if you go before lunch time. Try the charcoal grilled Vietnamese rice paper with chopped pork.

Marou Chocolate was touted by New York Times as the best chocolate you've never tasted! The cacao beans used to make these were harvested in Vietnam and each bar of chocolate is made from cacao beans from one origin only. If you love dark chocolate then this place is a MUST. I love their chocolate squares which are bite size and help me to control my urge to devour the whole box all once. They also have delicious chocolate desserts and truffles made fresh daily. But something that I can't live without and buy almost every single day are their delectable chocolate drinks: iced chocolate, hot chocolate, or mocha are all super chocolaty and delicious!
