Mango Crepes - close-up - Green Tangerine VND169k set lunch

Crepe stuffed with mashed mango served with vanilla ice cream

Crepe a la compote de mangue et ses billes de glace vanille.

 

I liked the burnt caramelly crepes that were flavoured with coconut cream, but the texture was not silky and chewy, but rather almost leathery and tough! The mango compote was more coconut-y rather than tangy mango. It seemed a waste to dull a fresh mango with heavy cooking.

The Set Lunch menu is either ridiculously cheap in USD and AUD (around USD8/AUD10), or horribly expensive at VND169000, when a bowl of pho is only around VND20000 / USD1.20 / AUD1.50.

Set Lunch Menu / Menu du Midi

Your chouse: 1 main course + 1 dessert.

1 Plat de resistance + 1 dessert de votre choix.

169.000 VND net

A charming French restaurant that harks back to the French Colonial days, even if the food is trying a little too hard.
