    Ciao Bella: Heaven. A memorable dinner in Saigon.

    by Marthamaire Written Feb 9, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On December 23, 2013, I took my unofficial "adopted daughter, Linh, to the Ciao Bella restaurant. I wanted her to have a wonderful experience and she, and I, certainly did. First of all, I cannot praise the email responses from this restaurant highly enough. I had to change the date of my reservation three times because I was coming in from Cambodia and Linh was arriving from Shi Lanka. The staff were unfailingly prompt and gracious in their replies. We booked for a 6pm table and because that is "early" for most diners, we got the best seat in the house. Second floor, table right in the center of the window. Linh and I picked a type of food we could both enjoy, since I don't like Vietnamese food (even after three visits) and neither of us was disappointed. From the free glasses of Prosecco with which we were greeted to the jasmine flower bracelets we were given as we left the restaurant, everything was perfect.

    Favorite Dish: We had the Penne Ciao Bella - penne with chicken breasts and wild mushrooms. Excellent. Linh got the small size and I ordered the large. The green salad was huge as was the dessert, chocolate marquise with strawberries. We shared both the salad and the dessert. I had two glasses of Merlot which was very good and I am from California and am used to pretty decent wine! Total price $52

    Toasting a great dinner. the lovely Linh

    Food stalls.: Eat street food in Vietnam.

    by cachaseiro Written Dec 3, 2013

    Vietnam is one of the best places in the world to enjoy street food.
    I have been coming to Vietnam on a regular basis since 2002 and i still have to say that i find few restaurants in the country that beats the littl street food stalls you find in every corner of the nation.

    Some people are a little worried about eating street food, but in Vietnam you can be quite sure that the produce is fresh as this is one thing they pride themselves in there and they might even be killing the animals they cook right in front of you as they tend to buy the anmals alive to make sure the meat is fresh.
    I have personally never gottel ill from eating street food in Vietnam and i have eaten it hundreds of times over the years.

    In Vietnam they also tend to shred the meat in to small pieces and when that is done and the food is cooked right in front of you then you should be fine to eat it.
    I have worked in several kitchens around the world and taken various hygene courses and most street kitchens in Vietnam do not worry me at all even if i do come by a place from time to time that is no good from that perspective.

    But go ahead and try the street food in Vietnam.
    It's for sure one of the highlights of visiting that country.

    Eating street food at night in Vietnam. Dinner is made right in front of you.

    UT TRINH HOME: ELEPHANT EAR FISH

    by alyf1961 Written Oct 15, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Elephant fish is a favourite dish when tourists visit the Mekong delta in Vietnam. It is available at many restaurants in the area.

    The elephant ear fish was amazing. They looked menacing with their mouths wide open and staring eyes. We got one each, Emma and I both ordered one. The lady came and showed us how to take the fish from the bone and wrap it in the rice paper, it was delicious although I didn’t like the chilli dip it came with.

    Favorite Dish: ELEPHANT EAR FISH

    SUMO BBQ: Japanese style BBQ

    by martensd Written Apr 27, 2012

    Sumo BBQ provides you with a wonderful variety of foods of your choice at a set price. Order as much as you want.
    They also have very nice sushi.
    They set up a grill in the table for you to grill your own food.
    Later they replace the grill with a hot pot for soup.
    It is not cheap, but it is worth the price.
    They have two locations in HCMC and three in Hanoi.

    Favorite Dish: Beef and shrimp grilled at the table were wonderful.
    Sushi boat was filled with a large variety of sushi.

    Bistro 48: Surprising Menu in a small place

    by martensd Written Apr 27, 2012

    The place is pretty popular and sometimes there is a waiting list. Once inside I was amazed at the menu.
    Steaks, lamb chops, excellent appetizers. A real surprise.

    They have small steaks which are very nice and not too expensive (about $5.00USD) and really nice sauces to accompany the steaks.
    They also have more expensive cuts of beef and some other items are more pricey. But all I am sure are worth the price as everything I had was excellent. I ended up there three times and have decided it is my favorite restaurant in HCMC.

    It is in District 1, but seemed off the beaten path.
    Reservations are recommended!!

    Favorite Dish: The steak with the green peppercorn sauce was excellent. Fantastic sauces.
    Really excellent menu which looks like it belongs in a high end hotel restaurant.

    Nha Hang Saigon 3: Chinese Dim Sum

    by martensd Written Apr 9, 2012

    I LOVE Dim Sum !! If you have never had this before, you really need to experience it.
    Dim Sum is basically appetizers. Steamed or fried, small bites of usually meat, seafood or vegetable wrapped a rice or flour dumpling. There are also BBQ ribs and other small bites.
    We found this restaurant, located in District 3 and knew it was going to be good just by the number of people eating there.
    The restaurant has a vast menu, serving both Chinese and Vietnamese food and of course Dim Sum.
    We actually took my father and mother in law to the restaurant, they NEVER having tried Dim Sum (being traditional, typical Vietnamese) and they absolutely loved the food.
    You order as much as you like, remember each order consists of three or four dumplings so order a variety. they only cost about $2.00USD each. We order about ten different types of Dim Sum and then order more of thoses we really like.
    Even though the Dim Sum seems cheap, when you finish and are completely satisfied, expect the bill for two to be around $20-25.00 USD, including your drinks.
    The restaurant has a couple of floors, so you should not have any problems getting a table.

    Favorite Dish: Shrimp dumpling (Bahn Cuon Tom) (ha Cao Tom Tuoi) just about every dumpling on the menu is good.
    The small ribs area also very good.
