    By on August 28, 2011 | 1 Comment

    Cuc Gach Quan is no doubt one of the best restaurant in Ho Chi Minh city. The restaurant offers sensational Vietnamese cuisine surround by beautiful decor and warm environment.

    Back to this afternoon, we paid a visit to Quan An Ngon Restaurant which was recommended by Lonely Planet. The overall food taste met the expectation and I was hoping there’s more special Vietnamese cuisine in Ho Chi Minh city.

    Our food adventure continues with Cuc Gach Quan restaurant as recommended by the local. Frankly, we had trouble looking for Cuc Gach Quan restaurant because the location is somehow ‘quite hidden’ icon smile

    Beautiful Taste From Saigon

    Why Cuc Gagh Quan is called the designer restaurant? From what I understand, this place used to be a designer shop and there’s one lady who cook for the staff.

    From time the place has became famous for its food and it became a restaurant in the end.

    Let’s start the feast with Golden Apple Leaf with Chicken for 80,000 VND. The taste is eventually better with Saigon beer icon biggrin

    One of my personal favourite, Fried Tofu with Lemongrass and Chili for 65,000 VND.

    Good fragrance of the lemongrass with extra smooth tofu makes me fall in love with it.

    The adventures in Ho Chi Minh will kick off with the introduction of Quan An Ngon restaurant. The actual name of the restaurant is Nga Hang Ngon and it’s recommended by Lonely Planet for terrific food.

    Let’s check it out how great the food is, shall we? The place looks incredibly busy with the presence of locals as well as expats and we were lucky to get a table within minutes.

    Let’s take a few sips of the fresh coconut water before placing orders. You will need this badly to cool off your body under the hot weather in Ho Chi Minh icon smile

    Here comes Pho Bo Tai, the noodle soup with rare beef at the price tag of 45,000 VND. The taste is above average credit to the fresh bean sprouts and rare beef icon smile

    The name of this dish is a little bit longer, Banh Hoi Thit Heo Quay Cuon Banh Trang for 120,000 VND.

    We have rice vermicelli,  roasted pork, rice papers and vegetables on the table. Let’s get started to make our own Vietnamese Rice Paper Roll just like in the picture.

    I am pretty sure you will feel uneasy at the first bite on the rice paper. But just go on, the great taste lies ahead icon smile

    Ha Cao which is similar to Chinese Dumpling for 40,000 VND. We ordered the same plate twice for double satisfaction.

    The food quality in Quan An Ngon restaurant is above average and so is the bill icon smile
