Unexpected Culinary Treasure In Saigon
My taxi driver and I circled the block twice before locating this cleverly hidden gem. The Temple Club is, like all good spots, a challenge at first to find. The street entrance features an unobtrusive red sign, and the entrance is lit with candles and lined with elephant sculptures. After climbing upstairs and wandering past the kitchen you will be seated either in the main dining room or on one of the balcony tables overlooking the street (obviously preferred and a reservation is suggested!). I dined on pumpkin ginger soup, fresh fish with a spicy sauce, and green tea creme brûlée. Plus a glass of wine and pot of tea, my meal totaled $20. The service wasn't overly engaging, but the ambience was perfect and the details (silverware pictured above!) were unique. Go!
