4. Fancy Ice Cream
Frenchman Jean Narc Bruno trained at the world famous Le Notre Paris school of ice cream. More than 20 years ago he met Italian frozen dessert maker Gerard Taurin and together they successfully launched their product in Vietnam. They realised that Vietnamese fruit was perfectly suited to making high-class ice cream.
As for the product, Fanny ice creams are all made using 100% natural ingredients. No additives, preservatives or artificial flavours are used. Additionally, the company sources only the highest quality of natural products. They scour the globe to bring the freshest, fullest natural flavours to their ice cream. In the range of over 40 flavours, fresh cream milk comes from New Zealand, the very finest vanilla is imported from Madagascar; world class chocolate from Belgium, premium green tea from Japan and super-rich yoghurt from Greece. Meanwhile, wonderful local fruits from Vietnam are used, all 100% natural and of the finest quality.
Strict quality controls are applied to the manufacture and presentation at Fanny’s stores. This covers such things as taste, aroma and colour; all aspects have to be perfect. The presentation in particular is superb. This is not like any other ice cream parlour. Think classic French fine dining and you’ll get an idea of what will arrive on your plate. Fanny has a unique way of presenting its a la carte ice creams. Customers can choose interesting accompaniments alongside the ice cream. For example, fruit flavours may be accompanied with passion fruit juice or chunks of chocolate. They have thought these combinations out well, perfectly balancing the ice cream and the accompaniments. The artistic way that these are then presented on the plate is a real head turner.
This really is artisanal ice cream, wonderfully crafted and displayed. Fanny has made it its mission to prepare and present delicious five-star French ice creams to Vietnamese people.
The breakfast menu offers crepes and high quality coffee alongside local favourites like noodles, banh mi and dim sum. Other specialities on offer include the wonderful ice cream and chocolate fondue, a huge hit with families. The drinks menu is extensive and incredibly creative. Ice cream sodas, coffees with ice cream (including Vietnamese “weasel” coffee), smoothies and ice cream milk shakes are all lovingly prepared and very popular.

6. East West Brewing
The first thing you’ll notice entering East West Brewing is the gleaming machinery towering overhead. As the doors close behind you, shutting off the din of downtown District 1 and Ly Tu Trong street, your ears will be greeted with the cavernous acoustics of something like to a museum. The floor plan is open permitting a clear view of the Ho Chi Minh Citybrewer’s pièce de résistance: the mammoth gleaming tanks on two floors that make up the beer maker’s in-house brewery.
In response to why the brewhouse was built to be a public-facing operation, East West Brewing Co.’s founders explained that craft beer’s relative newness and novelty in Vietnam created an opportunity for them to present the drink in a more intimate way. At the time of writing, East West remains the only place in Saigon where the city’s thirsty can drink a craft beer made on site. Brewery spokeswoman Mimi Truong said that explaining the broader motivation of craft beer—the process, the reasons behind making it and drinking it versus a Tiger or Heineken— is a bit like telling a story.
The untrained eye might get lost in the chromy gleam of the open brewery. The four tanks at the top are seated on another five polished 1,500 litre tanks at the ground floor. It’s like looking at the engine of a car: the industrial beauty is enhanced by the mystery of how the Rube Goldberg machine-like invention works. East West Brewing offers tours of its brewery to learn more about how they make the beers. During the tour, you might learn that the brewery is not just a two-storey machine, but also contains a third at the very top. It’s here that the recipe begins, crushing the grain in preparation for the mash. From there, the malt moves to the second “hot” floor where the ingredients are combined with boiling water and cooked to specification. Then the liquid is moved to the kettle and boiled. This is where one of the most important steps for perfecting flavour happens: adding the hops.
Unfinished beers leaving the second floor are sent to the bottom to cool and condition in the 1,500 litre tanks standing at attention adjacent to the dining room floor. Depending on the style of beer, the unfinished brew could be in fermentation for a long time—the malty, pronounced Independence Stout calls for a resting period of a month and a half—or a short one, like the Summer Hefeweizen, which is ready for kegging and bottling in just over two weeks. The brewery is built in levels like this to have gravity do the work of moving the tremendous liquid volumes from the top to the ground floor where the beers enter the fermentation stage, the last step in becoming drinkable, finished brews.
As Saigon’s beer lovers are getting to know East West Brewing Co., the brewer is also getting to know it’s audience and it’s shifting preferences better. For example, when the microbrewery opened a year ago, the top seller was the Saigon Rosé. The light, fruity raspberry wheat beer was a popular first foray into craft beer for the local drinkers, a crowd typically doused with light lagers like Tiger and 333 at other places.
Then, “in just six months the palette changed so quickly”, Mimi said. Nowadays, the brewery is now equally known and renowned for the Summer Hefeweizen, a citrusy, zesty take on the classic German wheat ale recipe, as well as their Far East IPA, and its flagship East West Pale Ale, a polished, hoppy beer that acts as ”a nice bridge” out of the land of industrial scale lagers, Mimi said.
The beer that carries the brewery’s name is an abridged reimagining of the company’s story. The East West Pale Ale combines hops from the US with hops in New Zealand. Similarly, East West Brewing Co. is the lovechild of a marriage between craft beer—a western convention—to a vision formulated by a US-raised Vietnamese entrepreneur Loc Truong and Sean Thommen, a US native leading the brewing operation.
