Saigon

A colonial lounge with a Milanese DJ Set

Saigon, like the river that rises near Ho Chi Min. This is the name of the Vietnamese restaurant of Luca Guelfi, owner of various restaurants throughout the city. All very particular, sophisticated and trendy places, all worthy of being Instagrammed and put into your feed. But, of all these places, Saigon is truly special, the one with the most unique atmosphere.

The location of Saigon really takes your breath away: a former industrial warehouse of 300 square meters, completely renovated in a perfect colonial style. Dark wood parquet, velvet chairs, paintings by Vietnamese painters on the walls, ceiling fans. Exotic plants like the banana plant complement the interior design. To bring us back immediately in via Archimede, in the middle of a Milanese evening, is the deejay set that accompanies customers since the aperitif. The atmosphere that is created is really magical, suggestive, thanks also to the soft lighting.

But the attention to the location does not detract anything from the quality of the food. Start with the fish dishes: the excellent tuna tartare and the small dumplings marinated in yogurt sauce and cooked in banana leaves. The most spectacular dish, however, is the Cari Ga: a chicken curry with sweet potato serve we should certainly mention the Pho Ga soup, noodles in broth with coconut milk, and the Cha Gio, fried rolls of rice paper with sweet and sour sauce. Another must try is (at least!) one of the five signature cocktails in the menu, really good.

Saigon - Milano

The experience you will experience here is very different from the oriental atmosphere of Paolo Sarpi to which we are used to: the evening at Saigon is fashionable. The environment is chic, the atmosphere alive. Ideal for an evening with friends, for a less formal business meal, or for anyone who is chasing VIPs: you will certainly see someone, as long as you can see in the half-shadows.

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences milan has to offer.

SINE, Ristorante Gastrocratico
