Zoom With A View

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Zoom has been a haunt of mine for years & has been the venue for many reunions. I have a personal fondness for the place but shall remain impartial for the sake of a beneficial review.

Set on a busy corner near Bùi Viện, Zoom does suffer from road noise & a fairly steady flow of hawkers which can at times become testing. However, the well selected music which is played at an appropriate volume does well to counteract the traffic din. In addition the staff here are always friendly & seem to be very content in their roles as Zoom staff.

When eating here, I usually go for a burger as they are consistently good & from 115,000đ with a free beer, the price is certainly competitive. The menu is broad with everything from Mexican to all day breakfasts. I have never been disappointed with the servings here & am yet to meet anybody that has been.

It is also worth noting that there is a happy hour from 7pm to 10pm when Huda or Saigon Green beers are a mere 10,000đ. After 10pm further offers are available. The owner of Zoom also conducts Vespa tours which has proved to be very popular with tourists visiting Saigon. The appreciation for Vespa is further proven by nostalgic Vespa items adorning the walls.

Zoom gets 4 stars, really I cannot fault any aspect here, it’s a shame that there is no longer outdoor seating but that is something that is certainly beyond the bars control. I recommended a visit for an evening drink or meal whilst enjoying decent music and watching the, at times, frenzied traffic.

Appropriately Unspectacular

by Joe Buckley @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Tân Định market is a large market selling a vast array of different things, as you’d expect from any market. The outside of the place is lined with food stalls, selling an impressive variety of dishes, so it’s easy to combine a trip here with lunch.

Although the market is a great place to go if you’re in the area or live locally, there’s nothing particularly exciting or exotic about the place – although it is housed in an unusual building with a unique façade – so you do not need add it to your must visit list, or make any special effort to go there.

The really interesting thing about Tân Định market, though, is its history. In the late 19th century, the market (then known as Phú Hòa Market) was one of the most important markets in Northern Saigon. The current building, however, was constructed by the French colonial government in the 1920s – partly to improve hygiene, and partly to increase the state’s revenue. And it is in this unusual building that the market is still housed today (minus the roof, which has been replaced).

So, the market is worth finding out about for general interest, but, despite being a great local place, if you don’t ever find yourself in the area, you’re not actually missing much.

A Tavern for lamb

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

A Sunday roast is a tradition in the UK & as it had been so long since I had partaken in such a great ritual, I decided to seek out the best for a Sunday roast. The suggestion that kept coming forth was The Tavern in district 7.

As usual, Sunday arrived & off we went to The Tavern for the anticipated roast dinner sensation. On arrival I was informed that today’s roast was lamb for 245,000đ. Without hesitation, my order was placed & my friend ordered the all-day breakfast.

After about 20 minutes 2 large plates crammed with steaming grub arrived at our table. My roast was more than substantial & smelt like a Sunday at home in the UK. The plate was covered with lamb, roast & mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables & a Yorkshire pudding. Mint sauce & gravy were the side-kicks for this dish of splendour.

Not to be out done, the breakfast was also vast with eggs, beans, sausages, hash browns, mushrooms, bacon, toast & butter. At a price of 155,000đ, this is without a shadow of doubt the best I have set eyes on in Asia.

Taste wise, the roast was exactly as it should be with everything properly cooked & served at just the right temperature, a truly pleasing roast that would not be out of place in London’s finest pubs. My only gripe is that the Yorkshire pudding was a rather heavy consistency, this has to be due to the available ingredients in Vietnam. The breakfast was faultless, I sampled some & can vouch for my friends testimonial.

So 4 well earned stars for The Tavern, highly recommended & I shall return in the not too distant future.
