Vietnam is a country renowned for its unique and delicious cuisine. From the flavorful pho to the fragrant bun cha, it’s no wonder that the country is becoming an increasingly popular destination for foodies.
But does Vietnam have any Michelin star restaurants?
The answer is yes! While there are currently no Michelin star restaurants in Vietnam, there are three establishments that have been awarded Michelin Bib Gourmands.
These awards are given to restaurants that offer high-quality food at affordable prices.
The first of these establishments is Anan Saigon, a restaurant located in Ho Chi Minh City. It serves traditional Vietnamese dishes with a modern twist, as well as other Asian-inspired dishes.
The menu features fresh seafood and seasonal produce sourced from local farmers markets and suppliers. Anan Saigon also boasts an extensive wine list that pairs perfectly with their dishes.
The second restaurant with a Michelin Bib Gourmand is Nhau Nhau, also located in Ho Chi Minh City. This establishment specializes in traditional Vietnamese street food such as banh mi sandwiches, spring rolls and beef pho, all made with fresh ingredients sourced from local markets and farms.
The final restaurant to receive a Michelin Bib Gourmand is Moca Restaurant & Bar in Hanoi. This chic eatery offers creative takes on traditional Vietnamese cuisine and has an extensive wine list of over 200 labels from around the world.
Yes, there are some restaurants in Vietnam that have been awarded Michelin Bib Gourmands — Anan Saigon, Nhau Nhau and Moca Restaurant & Bar — but no restaurants have yet received the prestigious Michelin stars. Nevertheless, these establishments offer high-quality food at affordable prices and provide diners with an unforgettable experience of traditional Vietnamese cuisine with modern twists.
