Over ten years since they opened as a small restaurant in an alley off Saigon's Le Thanh Ton Street, Pizza 4P's have seen it all, from growing into a 26-outlet brand, to the trials of the pandemic, all while sticking to their vision, delivering wow and sharing happiness. Co-founder Sanae Masuko tells us the story so far.
Anan Saigon’s Peter Cuong Franklin, Nous Dine’s Nghiem Minh Duc, and Ngo Thanh Hoa at East by Ngo Thanh Hoa are all doing exciting things at the vanguard of Vietnamese cuisine. And these are the sous chefs helping them.
Chef or bartender? Why choose when you can be a bit of both? And these three are living proof of the existence of the Vietnamese bar-chef! Meet ‘Rex’ Hoang Duy, Tom Nguyen and Trung Nguyen. And discover how they’re taking a culinary approach to their cocktails.
