Saigon isn't just defined by its food; its identity is deeply rooted in the eyewatering speed at which the city moves, the endless honking of the motorbikes and the thousands of food stalls that line its streets. It's this essence of Saigon that has been captured here.
Welcome to Saigon on Willis, an authentic representation of one of the most memorable and unique cities on the planet. They stand out from the crowd due to their outward appearance of a street food vendor. Rustic and quirky, you can't help but feel drawn to this place. Inside, the senses are tickled in much the same way as they are in Saigon itself; lights, textures and images present themselves around every corner, a hanging bike here, a city skyline there and a trio of neon strips elsewhere. It's quite simply a joy to be there.
Another thing that's bound to tickle your senses is the food. Start off strong with some bold flavours, the likes of which are unparalleled with the deep-fried wontons, the tangy beef salad and sautéed mussels in a homemade fish sauce. Then you'll be in fine shape to take on some lighter mains like vermicelli salad, a warming bowl of pho or a Saigon curry.
Other mains are richer and more decadent. Take the wok-tossed beef, for example, that is tender and flavoursome in a coriander and soy sauce. Then there's the Saigon steak drizzled in a Vietnamese pepper sauce, and slow-cooked pork ribs or fish with sticky rice. With a trio of vegetarian options available too, everyone is invited to experience Saigon at its best.
