As I’ve said in the article about the Le Meridien hotel in Ho Chi Minh, I had the pleasure of eating at their Latest Recipe restaurant several times throughout my stay. The dining room is quite comfortable and very bright in it’s design. The restaurant often hosts buffets but they do have an à la carte menu as well. As you would expect the restaurant has a wide variety of both Western and Asian dishes.
Throughout the stay, I ate there several times. On my first night, I decided to go with the à la carte menu. This menu was very impressive and ultimately I decided to order the chef’s salad, an Australian tenderloin steak and to finish it off, chocolate cake for dessert.
The most exciting of the items I ordered, had to be the steak. It was cooked to a perfect medium rare. This glorious piece of meat was accompanied with French fries and a few sauces. A good steak does not require sauce and I would have to agree, but I recommend the béarnaise sauce for the French fries. Heaven. This was a lovely dinner. Accompanying the food was a lovely glass of red wine from Spain.
I went with the chocolate cake for dessert as I mentioned. This was one of the most dense and moist chocolate cakes I’ve ever sunk my teeth into. Incredible.
Not only the à la carte menu was amazing, but the buffet was impressive as well. The following evening I went for the buffet. The selection is massive. They really have a lot of quality items such as seafood, sushi, Vietnamese food, all kinds of meat, pizza and pasta. It’s really a wide range of possibilities. I also would like to point out their selection of smoothies were quite tasty.
My experiences at the Latest Recipe restaurant inside the Le Meridien hotel in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam were all magnificent. I was already incredibly impressed with the hotel itself and a lot of this came from the restaurant. This property is definitely top-notch and I can highly recommend you to eat or stay at the property as soon as possible!
