B3 Steakhouse & Craft Beer

B3 Steakhouse & Craft Beer is the latest addition to the burgeoning Ho Chi Minh City Steakhouse outlets. They opened their doors in May 2016 and boast among other things the largest selection of craft beers on tap in the whole city. They are the only restaurant to offer second cut beef rather than only focusing on primary cuts as most of the competition do. This gives customers the chance to enjoy quality meat at prices that won’t burst the wallet. Clientele is a mix of expats, locals and tourists. Favoured cuts are the beef tenderloin and the oyster blade, both of which have attracted favourable reviews from food critics and regular customers alike.

The restaurant couldn’t have a better location. Nguyen Hue is the focal point of the city. This recently adapted walking street is a magnet for locals at the weekend, providing a really exciting ambience in what is already a thriving city. This particular Ho Chi Minh City Steakhouse & Craft Beer occupies a fabulous spot close to the famous Rex Hotel. For those feeling the need for air-conditioning the inside area is large and airy, whilst for al fresco dining, the upstairs terrace seats up to twenty people and presents great views of the thoroughfare below.

The decor is funky and modern, with New York style graffiti covering walls. This is something a little different and offers a much welcomed contrast to other Ho Chi Minh City Steakhouses. Diners enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and of course the great food and real ales. For the first time visitor, try their superb aforementioned oyster blade with pepper sauce. If steak is not your thing they have a wonderful duck breast with orange sauce, which is definitely worth a try.  

This is a winning combination, followers of craft beer are growing rapidly in numbers, and offering good quality beef at very reasonable prices at a premier location should see customers flocking in.

EON51 Fine Dining

EON51 Fine Dining in Ho Chi Minh City raises the bar for high end, high up restaurants. This superb venue high above the streets of downtown Ho Chi Minh City is situated fifty-one storeys up in the Bitexco Financial Tower. Chef Cuong serves superb European food with an Asian twist. The restaurant design is clever; realising that the star of the visual show is the view, the interior has been made in a way to accentuate the large windows and the city they showcase.

Ambiance

The restaurant has created the perfect venue in which to enjoy your sky high dining experience. From the minute one enters, the open wine cellar and equally open kitchen create an inviting ambience and a welcoming atmosphere. The clean crisp linen and lovely cutlery, crockery and glassware all add to the high class feel of the place.

Service

The service was quite simply faultless. Plates arrived and disappeared with the minimum of fuss and the maximum politeness. Wine glasses were topped up at just the right times, meals arrived precisely and at exactly the same time for the guests. The staff were polite and just friendly enough so as to not be obtrusive. They answered any questions that they were asked; everything one would want and expect from a restaurant delivering fine dining in Ho Chi Minh City.

Food & Drinks

The food and drink were magnificent, both in preparation and presentation. We went with Chef Cuong’s recommendations, and it didn’t disappoint. Despite going with fish, we chose a delightful red Bourgogne to accompany it and it worked well through the courses.

Deep water bay scallop with green asparagus, fennel pesto, black garlic, quail egg, truffle and red wine coulis

This was a real winner right from the off; the perfect balance of flavours all hinting at what might be to follow. The portion for us on this occasion was by way of an amuse bouche and it certainly did the job. The scallop was delicious, bursting with ripe, fresh flavour and aroma. The moistness of the seafood was matched by the crispness of the asparagus.

Pan seared foie gras with green tea crumb, spiced carrot, pumpkin puree with Xeres vinegar

This prize starter was beautifully presented and is the best foie gras I have had for a very long time. The green tea crumb on top set it off beautifully, adding that little bit of Asian pizzazz to one of the classics of European cuisine. The crisp carrots were topped off with coconut which was an unusual and effective combination - one I really liked.

Pineapple palate cleanser

A glass of strong pineapple juice to awaken the palate. This was utterly uplifting to the tongue, and left the mouth feeling cleansed and ready to go.

Roasted cod fish fillet drizzled with black olive tapenade and warm potato salad

Set off by a single prawn, this was simply superb. The fish was cooked to perfection and highlighted by the tapenade. The fish fell apart in flakes on the fork and retained all its moisture and flavour. Again the EON51 Fine Dining signature presentation was evident and the balance of ingredients really well thought out. This was the highlight of the evening for me, though my French dinner partner singled out the foie gras. It’s always a great sign when two diners struggle to find the highlight, and finish up with two different courses.

EON51 Fine Dining dessert sample of chef special tiramisu, milk chocolate mousse and balsamic glaze strawberry tart with vanilla ice cream

I enjoyed the juxtaposition of the rich chocolate and the light tart strawberries. The flavours were an apt contrast. The tiramisu was perfectly fine and again the overall presentation won the day.

Mignardises of strawberry macarons, shortbread biscuits and chocolate truffles with filo pastry

I really enjoyed these bite sized dessert canapés. They work superbly well at the end of a satisfying meal. The big winner for me of the whole experience was that wonderful feeling of being completed sated but not in the least bit over-full. Nothing spoils a meal more than getting to the dessert course, only to feel over-faced when it arrives.

What Can Be Improved

It is not easy to find fault here. One small detail is that for a venue where the view is so important, some of the windows are in need of cleaning. This is however, one would suspect, out of their hands and firmly in the domain of the Bitexco Tower’s building management.

What People Say

EON51 Fine Dining gets differing reviews on TripAdvisor. Some people comment negatively on price, whilst others seem perfectly happy to pay for a fine dining experience 51 floors up. The positive reviews are extremely positive, but it is certainly a mixed bag.
