Cuc Gach Quan

10 Đặng Tất, Tân Định, Quận 1, Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh, Vietnam
+84 28 3848 0144

Recalling Saigon’s past, Cuc Gach Quan offers fine Vietnamese fare in a cozy setting that re-creates the home of the owner’s grandmother—a French-colonial house with worn, wood-plank floors; retro furnishings; warm lighting; and a floating staircase to connect the two levels. It’s grown in popularity ever since Brad and Angelina ate here in 2011, but the menu continues to focus on Vietnamese dishes while following the approach summarized in its motto: “Eat green, live healthy.” Expect menu items such as fresh spring rolls with shrimp, crispy sea bass, and fantastic homemade tofu fried with chili and lemongrass.

Brick - Gourmet Vietnamese food

Cuc Gach Quan or depending on who you ask, “Brick” is an old converted French villa designed by Vietnamese architect Tran Binh. It’s not easy exploring the local grub in a country like Vietnam. Sometimes it takes a place like Brick to highlight what the Vietnamese cuisine is all about- flavor in unusual places. With a menu the size of a hotel bible it is impossible not to find something that you would enjoy. Brick has all ways been an excellent first dinner in Saigon for friends and family. From cactus grilled with garlic to soft shell crab with lemon grass to manila clams in a fennel broth to caramelized pork in clay pot, there isn’t a time that I haven’t left with a smile and a full happy belly.
