I visited this beef place last night in the Tan Phu Districts towards the outskirts of Saigon. The food there was really great and I really enjoyed the beef. Yes, it may be a bit far from District 1 but for those in the Phu Nhuan and Tan Binh District areas, you will surely love […]

I will do a thorough review my next visit there. In the meantime, check out the menu below: (more…)
