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 🙂
And you where are you use to eat in Saigon? Do you have a favorite set lunch somewhere? I would love to try new places!!
