Fodor's Expert Review Hoa Tuc

$$$ Around Dong Khoi Street Vietnamese Fodor's Choice

The name translates as opium poppy, and this chic little eatery is in a corner of the former La Manufacture d'Opium, the French-controlled opium refinery and warehouse. It offers contemporary Vietnamese cuisine with knockout flavors and a wine list that works with the local cuisine. The art deco interior is elegant, with wrought-iron chairs, cast-iron lamps, quirky purple accents, and a leafy outdoor terrace. Standout dishes include mustard-leaf rolls, pink pomelo, squid, and crab salad, and soft shell crabs in green rice batter with passion-fruit sauce. This is a great place to try one of the local specialties—soursop smoothie—if you are nervous about the street-side drinks stands. The kids' menu will also make mini foodies happy.
