Having a fine dining in a restaurant inside a mall is normal, but how about having a fine dining in a restaurant at 51st floor, where you could view the city from above.
This is the experience that myself and my family had during our recent visit to Ho Chi Minh City. I was so looking forward to be in this restaurant, not merely because of the food, but because of the chance to see Ho Chi Minh City from above. Everything looks so pretty at night. It’s like an orchestra of light. A combination of lights from the buildings, the street light and the light from the car. It’s so unfortunate that I couldn’t use the slow speed at my camera, as the light from inside the restaurant appeared as a bright reflection on the mirror.
While I was enjoying the view from the 51st floor of Bitexco Financial Tower, which is the tallest building in Ho Chi Minh City, one by one the food was being served. The appetizer, main course, and dessert.
If you asked me how was the taste of the food, I’m going to say ‘Hmm … the food was delicious!’ Haha.
I’m still learning how to be a better (food) blogger that could describe the texture of the salmon and how crisp the fish skin is, also how to take a very enticing food that can make you drool every time you look at the photo 🙂
Btw, I just got the name of the Appetizer! It’s a very long name for an appetizer 😀 >> Smoked Salmon and Pumpernickel Toast with Capers Spread and Dill Emulsion.
For the dessert, I was expecting something with ice cream, but sadly they ran out of the ice cream, and it left me with the choice of strawberry with vanilla cream.
The unique presentation that we had after the dessert was the watermelon juice. It’s unique not because of the colour of the juice, but because it’s not using a regular glass. Do you still remember a tube pyrex that we used in the chemistry class during high school. Yeap they served it in a tube looks like the tube pyrex in a big bowl full of ice.
It was a very nice experience, and I would love to try it during the day to get a different feel.
