In September, Fusion Original Saigon Centre will open the new Miss Thu restaurant which offers fine culinary experience and the city view from above.
Located on the 24th floor of Fusion Original Saigon Centre, Miss Thu restaurant is inspired by the charismatic and daring character of Vietnamese women. Diners here can learn her story through the restaurant’s design, interiors and European-styled Vietnamese foods.
The restaurant features a ceiling design that evokes the “nón quai thao” (a traditional Vietnamese hat) and textured windows with a flutter of mandarin hand fans, creating a warm, luxury space with a very Vietnamese style.
“Locals and travelers alike are seeking more from a restaurant these days,” said Alvaro Moreno, General Manager of Fusion Original Saigon Centre, “Yes, they want great food, but they also want immersion in a setting with soul and substance. Miss Thu steps up with some of that.”
The menu bridges tradition and innovation with Vietnamese flavors running throughout. Proudly local options like spring rolls stuffed with fresh tiger prawns, fried scallops, and Iberico pork feature on the menu alongside Vietnamese-inspired items like a sweet & sour Norwegian salmon and Argentinian beef tenderloin with Vietnamese chimichurri. Street food favorites are also available, along with sweeter treats like a French Crème Brûlée, with local ingredients of coconut, lemongrass and ginger. The restaurant serves from 16:00 to 22:00.
The head chef, Arnaud Daleau, comes from France and draws on French culinary training and hands-on experience in Paris and Sydney, along with three years living and working in Vietnam. He said: “With Miss Thu we wanted to create a menu with bold flavors and unique takes on Vietnamese dishes that showcase the vibrant nature of Vietnamese cuisine.”
