Vietnam . Quán Bar The Refinery . 提炼厂 . "Chapter 29"

Quán Bar The Refinery which located at 74 Hai Bà Trưng, Bến Nghé, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
his French bistro is built in the former headquarters of the leading Opium refinery (hence the name) of old Indochine. They've got a great selection of light and filling food that's made just right. I had the eggplant with tomato-mint sauce, goat cheese, and brown and wild rice -- a perfect blend of healthy starches and cheesy indulgence. Being a bistro, they're always ready to serve a coq au vin at the drop of a hat. The understated decor makes for casual, intimate dining. Floors are retro red, white, and black tiles, and seating is that of a Paris bistro -- low wooden tables and round chairs. The outdoor terrace is shrouded in plants and a mélange of leather chairs and small tables -- you'll forget that you're actually sitting in a hem (a small street or alley)
