Best Saigon Restaurants

Mon Hue Restaurant

Okay, I have a new favorite restaurant now.  I am a big fan of Hue food here in Vietnam so finding any new Hue restaurant is always a good feat.  My friend and I found Mon Hue Restaurant quite by accident today.  We were riding down Hai Ba Trung looking for small restaurant when a downpour hit suddenly.  We were passing Mon Hue just as it hit so naturally, instead of being wet (we had no rain ponchos) we stopped there for lunch.

Wow, what a good catch.  We ordered quite a bit of food and oddly enough, it was enough for me.  The serving proportions were actually good.  My bowl of Com Hen was enough for me with all the extras.  I think I was eating a little to fast since it was so good 🙂

I finished the meal off with a Sinh To Dau (strawberry shake). Total bill, 148,000 VND for two people.  Not bad for Hue food.

    “?ào” is peach. Strawberry is “dâu”, sounds like “Yo”. From the pictures, I couldn’t make out what is what. But from your description and enthusiasm, they all sound yummy.

  • Yeah, thanks, I meant to write ‘u’ 🙂

    Sorry, I do not have unikey or scim on my Arch install.

  • Ah, you like Hue food uh? I do, too. And I like exotic food also. It’s interesting that u can eat com hen. Isn’t it too “hot” for u?
    In my recent trip to Saigon, I saw Mon Hue Restaurants on Nguyen Trai and An Duong Vuong Sts. but didn’t try. A Hue local doesn’t go to Saigon for Hue food, huh? lol.

  • @Duong Lam Anh:

    Oh yeah, it was alittle spicy but I loved it. 🙂 You are from Hue, right?

    The only Hu? dish I ever had is bún bò Hu? and I love it. There aren’t much opportunities to sample authentic Hu? food here in New Jersey. You are lucky, Kevin. Something that would probably make me hesitate to try more Hu? cuisine, however, is their proclivity for m?m ru?c (fermented shrimp paste). Still, thanks for the Món Hu? recommendation. Will definitely try it if I ever in SG.

  • I actually turned down the mam ruoc, I have not acquired a taste for it yet 🙂

    I really love Hue food. I will have some for lunch tomorrow as well 🙂

    Hue food is one of the best. I love it. Your pictures make me hungry!

  • I went back there today for lunch again 🙂

  • I’ll be back in Saigon for a couple of days in August so I’ll give them a try.

  • Cool, give me a call when you are here.

    Happened upon your blog randomly. I really like Nam Giao and the two other Hue restaurants right next to it over by Cho Ben Thanh. I’ve only been in HCMC for a few days this time around but I’ve eaten there twice already, then grabbed a sinh to to go from Cho Ben Thanh.
