Bacoulos and its Set Lunch in D2 – Saigon

You are living in District 2 or close and you don’t know where to eat on a week lunch day? You might be tempted by a French style cuisine that reminds you where you come from: Europe

Well, let me tell you that I have tried the Bacoulos set lunch for 140,000VND.  It was actually quite nice, not the best deal ever (I really like the set lunch on this Japanese place: Tama River in D2 as well where you come out sooo full and satisfied by the quality) but it is a cool quiet place to have a peaceful lunch on a busy week day. And moreover it is not very busy!

The 140,000VND set lunch has its a special menu where you can choose between starter+main or main+dessert with a drink for both. Exactly like at the ‘Time Out’ on Quoc Huong Street which is doing good set lunch for 120.000VND 160.000VND now ... (It’s better to order ‘à la carte’ #toptip)

I had a sole fillet with a lemon and olive oil sauce as my main and feta and tomato kebab for starter with a salad on a side.

The good deal when you go for set lunch is that most of the time, you can have the expensive main usually on the ‘night time’ menu, for cheaper. That what I did 🙂 Sole fish can be quite expensive at a restaurant and having it included in a set lunch is the good way to eat good quality food for a more affordable price. You see what I mean #smart!

There is also this other option of one main for 120.000 among a large list of dishes. Mr. D had a burger and was satisfied of the food quality as well.

If you don’t know where to go on a busy week day, just try Bacoulos, you might be surprised 🙂

  1. Other great places to eat in D2 are:

    Tama River (quiet private room settings and decent sushi), Lubu (beautiful Greek like decor and great service, delicious food), The Deck (great breakfast, relaxing views), Papagayo, La Plancha (great homemade pastas), Frangipani (cute outdoor setting), Sushi Fusion (great for a quick sushi), Baan Thai, Mekong Merchant (great coffee), Ploughman’s Garden

    Other places that I heard that are nice in D2 are:
    La Villa on Ngo Quang Huy (not Villa Song)
    La Closerie d’Elisa on Ngo Quang Huy

    I haven’t been to much in D1 but I recommend Hoa Tuc!

    • Hi Jennafa, thank you so much for your comment 🙂 Nice places that you are suggesting here. I have been to quite a few of them, I really like the set lunch they do at Tama River, their fish is very fresh and healthy! Deck, Plancha, Papagyo, Frangipani, Mekong and Sushi are very nice places 🙂 I haven’t been to Lubu yet as I heard it was quite expensive, but the place looks cool !! Will definitely try Baan Thai as I haven’t heard about it.
      La Closerie d’Elisa is a nice place, I haven’t ate there but apparently it is very expensive for what it is.
      There are a lot of little street food places as well that are doing amazing food in D2 🙂
      Where is Hoa Tuc in D1, would love to try 🙂

      Have a nice evening 🙂
