Why Quan An Ngon 138 is special ?

Quan An 138, across from HCMC's Reunification Palace, serves refined yet affordable street food from the three regions of Vietnam in a deluxe atmosphere. A wide range of regional food and drink is on offer from banh xeo to Vietnamese ice coffee. Enjoy your meal in the open air courtyard with ancient Vietnamese décor including delicate wood carvings embellished with lacquer and mother-of-pearl. For village cuisine in Saigon style, check out Quan An Ngon 138.

The concept of Quan An 138 is simple: serve fresh, authentic regional dishes from all corners of Vietnam in a modernised, rural market setting. The exterior of the restaurant hints at a European chalet or maybe a castle, with its creamy yellow hues. Inside, the action moves fast and furious and food from all corners of Vietnam is rushed to the tables of eager diners.

Must try dishes:

Mud snails in coconut milk

Banh Xeo

Goi cuon (summer rolls)

Spring rolls stuffed with shrimp, basil and spring onion

Pho bo (beef noodle soup)

We had been looking and looking for a restaurant to enjoy Beef La Lot in Saigon and were not having much luck until we found Quan An Ngon. While this may not be the same as Quan An Ngon in Hanoi or possibly another in Ho Chi Minh, we were very happy to find La Lot and a few other tasty choices at this restaurant. Each specialty dish has a chef/cook/hawker ready to prepare your order from scratch. We found each specialty area was willing to let you watch and look at the setup so be brave and try something new! We enjoyed the freshness of the local herbs, mints and dressings and found the servings ample for the price. Our waiter didn't speak much english but his enthusiasm to ensure we had a drink in hand and food to enjoy could not be faulted.

This institution in Vietnamese cuisine is a must for all visitors. I never leave HCMC without dropping by this place! Their vermicelli bowls and Viet cakes tops my list.
