『 Song Ngu 』
Established in 1996, Song Ngu is one of the most sophisticated and most popular seafood restaurants in HCMC. The large aquarium next to the kitchen promises patrons the freshness and quality of seafood from all over the world.
Song Ngu offers a diverse and authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Visitors to Vietnam may be familiar with Vietnamese cuisine from their home country, but will realize what true Vietnamese cuisine is really like through their dining experience at Song Ngu.
Song Ngu has always been loved by local businessmen, high class families, and travellers from outside of Vietnam and has been often chosen by Vietnamese Government Officials as the place to entertain VIPs from overseas.
Chef's Tips
Red grouper is in season from December to April. A white fish such as Barramundi can be used if Red Grouper is out of season.
Cointreau can be replaced by any other Triple Sec (Orange liqueur).
