Back to work.
Today, four of us went out for lunch at the Full House Restaurant (彩鳳臺). It is located in the same plaza as the Saigon Star (i.e. 黃金商場). I guess it has been opened quite a while, but I just thought it would be a Chinese restaurant like Congee Wong. But it is actually a pretty decent Chinese Tea House.
Stepped into this Tea House, you would immediately feel a rush of Gold and Red into your eyes. The big golden framed mirrors on the wall, Chinese lanterns on the ceiling, and golden buddha statues near the entrance together created a vivid image, portraying a typical Chinese restaurant in one of those Hollywood movies.
It was just totally out of my expectation.
The waiters and waitresses there were polite and helpful although they were very busy during lunch hours. We ordered some dim sum, such as baked BBQ pork puff, both fried and steamed veggie/shrimp dumplings, fried stuffed tofu & eggplants, Singapore style stir-fried rice-cake, spring rolls, etc… total of 8-9 dishes. Most of the dim sum are for 3 persons (i.e. 3 pieces/dish) except the rice-cake. The total was $40, 10% gratuity included. The overall taste was very good. But if they can offer a wider selection, it would be excellent!
Since we were in a hurry for a after-lunch meeting, we didn’t try a lot of stuffs, but I’m sure I’ll go back another time.
