Megavina's review: Cái Thùng Gỗ Le Tonneau
Megavina's Investigators have visited this restaurant in district 3, they ordered a selection of dishes and beverages, visited the facilities (toilets and had a look on the kitchen area if possible), they checked the cleanliness and how the staff interacted with clients. Our investigators work anonymously, the best way to get real and objective reviews because the staff and the managers don't know that we are investigating.
Unexpected flavors, freshness, originality- by Megavina Travel - Establishment visited September 14, 2015
Cai Thung Go restaurant is a combination of french and vietnamese cuisine, a tasty experience at less than 15 minutes driving from Ben Thanh Market (D1).
Menu was very simple, just a few starters, main courses and desserts. Rainy and signs of wet weather ahead always put us in the mood for fresh seafood and seasonal produce, especially salmon, scallops, prawns/shrimps!
We began our meal, as appetizer, with a mixed salad with salmon pickled in Balsamic vinegar and black Japanese soya. Presented in a serving dish (plate whose diameter is more than 30 cm), we were surprised by the beautiful decoration, the crunchy of the vegetables and the softness of the salmon flesh slightly marinated.
As starter, we selected grilled prawns and avocado/tomatoes tartare, lightly spiced. It was absolutely gorgeous, an explosion of flavours on the palate! Prawns were not overcooked, their flesh was still tender with a light grilled after taste. The tartare was perfectly well-seasoned, fresh and yummy.
As main course, we chose a grilled supreme of Norwegian salmon topped with butter sauce, cooked to perfection, soft texture.
To finish, we decided to enjoy pan-seared sea Scallops with cherry tomatoes, lobster sauce and beetroot juice. It was great!
Of course, this meal wouldn't be complete without just the right wine pairing, Chardonnay! Chardonnay and scallops are an ethereal pairing, aren't they? Chardonnay's characteristic citrus notes are like a squeeze of lemon on any seafood dish, adding brightness to this sumptuous fare.
The bill came to 803,000vnd (36USD) for 2 persons
