One of our best experience of a wonderful slice of Italian food in Saigon : PENDOLASCO

Pendolasco is our favorite Italian restaurant in Saigon ( Thao Dien – District 2 ) Must See In Vietnam : we love the ambiance specially in the Garden .

Must See In Vietnam Reporters @ Pendolasco’s Garden

After reading the Article of Karen Wise, have a look at the our video Garden and the pics of our our dinner 😋

Watch this interview by Karen Wise of https://www.citypassguide.com/… and read her article Below … THE PASSION BEHIND PENDOLASCO

The man behind Pendolasco, is shy yet charismatic Carlo Anzon, born in Milan but with roots in Sicily. his passion and hospitality is infectious.

Carlo Anton, the MAN behind Pendolasco

Long before finding his way to Ho Chi Minh City, Anzon’s love affair with traditional Italian food began as a child collecting menus on travels throughout his home country with his parents. Charmed by the interest shown by the young boy, restaurant owners were happy to give him one, and what began as a hobby is now a thriving restaurant business. Fascinated, I ask him whether he still has any of those old menus. “120”, he says.

His interest in Vietnam began in the 1970s with his first visit taking place in 1976. Anzon’s first few years were spent in Hanoi, where he met his wife, a Vietnamese national, and his relationship with the country deepened further. Engaged in what he refers to as serious business – Anzon was country manager for an Italian company selling home appliances, Trade Commissioner for the Italian Ministry of Trade and Honorary Consul for Italy before the opening of the Italian Consulate in 2014. It was a while before he took the plunge into full time restaurant ownership – a bold move in 2004, but Anzon is a man who follows his heart.

Pendolasco is Getting the Basics of Italian Cuisine Right in Saigon’s District 2

Now in its 21st year, it is safe to say he has found a winning recipe. His formula of traditional Italian food in District 2 of Saigon, prepared with high quality ingredients served in a charming setting has turned out to be a winning one. He has a loyal following.

Central to the menu is Pendolasco’s homemade pasta and pizza, as well as the delicious breads. The pizza dough is carefully created using Italian flour and yeast cultivated in the Pendolasco kitchen and allowed to rise over a full 24 hours. Rushing the dough makes it difficult to digest he explains to me. The pizzas are cooked in one of the three high tech Italian wood burning ovens. Similar care is taken over the preparation of the fresh pasta which has been popular with Pendolasco’s customers for many years. Many say that it’s the best pasta in Saigon.

Anzon’s attention to detail does not stop here. Ingredients for the toppings and sauces are given equal importance. The imported cheese is carefully chosen – can’t be too fatty or it will burn I’m informed. Fresh vegetables are sourced from local suppliers who use minimal chemicals and triple washed to ensure the best hygiene standards.

Outstanding Italian Food & Wine Options in Pendolasco’s Menu

A new best seller is pizza pala. Made from higher grade flour, the base is lighter and crispier and provides an ideal background for more delicate and sophisticated toppings, such as truffle oil or salmon. Oval in shape and larger than standard, it’s the best pizza choice in Saigon for sharing between two people. No need to agree on a topping – you can do half and half. Only available on Fridays and Saturdays, Pendolasco’s busiest times, this is often a sellout item. Once the freshly prepared dough is gone, pizza pala is off the menu.

To refresh the menu, Anzon gets inspiration from what he refers to as his bible – a recipe book of regional Italian specialties passed down from his grandmother. This year they will expand the meat dishes to add a veal tenderloin main option.

To compliment the food, Anzon ensures that Pendolasco has a lovingly put together wine list. To help guests choose a wine suited to their preferences as well as their wallets, there is a helpful description for each wine with details of the grade and alcohol content. Italian wines account for 70% of the large selection, with new world wines and a small number from France making up the balance. These are all on display in the temperature controlled wine cellar inside the restaurant. One of the top wine by the glass selections in Ho Chi Minh City includes a selection of premium Italian wines, giving wine lovers an opportunity to enjoy a single glass or two without the expense of consuming a whole bottle in one visit. Once a bottle is opened, you have the option of leaving it in Pendolasco’s temperature controlled cellar or taking it home. This is ideal for couples, single diners or those simply wishing to treat themselves to a fine wine to complement their experience.

Pendolasco: A Perfect Environment for Authentic Italian Cuisine in Saigon

The decor has evolved organically over time. There is no great architectural plan – just simple traditional pleasures: a comfortable relaxed environment, authentic regional Italian dishes prepared with the best ingredients and good wines. All that is required is your company for an outstanding Italian restaurant experience in Ho Chi Minh City. Remember that Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays are busiest, so book a table or you might be disappointed.

World’s longest glass bridge in northern Vietnam – The New Tourist attraction !

World's longest glass bridge to open in northern Vietnam

Must See In Vietnam is publishing an article of E.VNExpress by Hoang Phong who has visited the new Tourist attraction in Vietnam. We suggest you to watch the video … hope that you won’t get dizzy 😉

A 632-meter-long glass bridge in northern highlands town Moc Chau, said to be the world’s longest, is scheduled to open to tourists during the Reunification Day (April 30) holiday.

Work on the bridge, namely Bach Long in Moc Chau Island Tourist Area in Son La Province, around 200 kilometers from Hanoi, is nearly complete, Voice of Vietnam reported.

The launching of the bridge is expected to be one of the province’s most important tourism highlights.

Watch the video

The relative height between the bridge deck and the ground is about 150 meters.

The bridge’s deck is made of super tempered glass produced by leading French company Saint Gobain, including three layers of 40 millimeters thick.

The entire cable car system is imported from South Korea.

Hoang Manh Duy, a representative of Moc Chau Island Tourist Area, said when it is opened, only 500 people will be allowed to walk on the bridge at a time to ensure safety.

The tourist area is completing procedures to seek Guinness world record recognition as the world’s longest glass bridge.

Currently, Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon in western Hunan Province of China is home to the world’s longest and highest glass bridge, which is about 430 meters long.

Must See in Vietnam … Sau Village … a rare vestige of rural charms …

We publish this article written By Huynh Phuong, Nguyen Thong for http://www.E.VnExpress.net – This article is in our opinion both by its photographs and by its descriptions a great work of art that deserves its place in our blog –

Sau Village a rare vestige of rural charms

Award winning photographer Nguyen Huu Thong, a native of the northern province of Bac Giang Province, where the village is located, has captured for posterity scenes of great beauty and charm.

Smoke from burning straw seems to become or blend into low lying clouds at sunset in this landscape shot along the Thuong River at the foot of Danh Mountain in Tan Yen District. 

Bac Giang Province is around 50 kilometers from Hanoi.

The local legend is that the village had for its backdrop a mountain in the shape of a squirrel, a mascot often worshiped in front of temples. The legend gives the village its name.

On the expedition, tourists can explore the cave together with a specialist, traverse unique underground rainforests, wade through rivers both above and below ground, and scale the 90-meter “Great Wall of Vietnam” at the end of the cave with ropes and ladders.

The tour price also includes airport pick-up, two nights’ stay at a hotel, three meals a day, and snacks.

Each tour party has a maximum of only 10 guests but 30 people are needed to serve them – 22 porters who carry their luggage and also food for the four-day trip, five safety assistants, an international guide, a cave expert, two chefs, and a ranger.

All 1,000 slots for 2022 are booked while around 100 people, mostly foreigners, have already booked for 2023.
