“Vegetarian heaven”It is more than a year since I was last at Hum., an absolute must do for any vegetarian visiting Saigon. Tonight was a crowded Friday night but the food and service were impeccable. The atmosphere is affluent Asian, but by North American standards this restaurant is extremely inexpensive and would count as a ‘cheap eats’ in most cities. The difference is that the food is sophisticated, innovative and definitely gourmet and the atmosphere is cultured. The crowd tends to be in their 20s and 30s but no one looked askance when an old guy walked in. Somewhat to my horror I realize I have now been a vegetarian for more than 66 years, and have eaten on every continent except the Antarctic. This restaurant, and is in particular this branch of this small restaurant chain, remains my favourite in the world.
“Fantastic Vegan Meal”Its a big pain to find pure Veg food in Asian cities. The offering at this restaurant was mind boggling. Simply loved the food especially the mock meat and drinks served at this restaurant. A local ordered the food for us and was lip smacking. Staff was also courteous and also understood Jain dietary requirements which was a big thing.
“Best meal of the trip” - an omnivore”Every dish we had here was amazing. The flavors are so brilliant, I never wanted this meal to end but alas, there are limits to the human stomach. My boyfriend and I hopped in here for our last dinner in Vietnam and could not have made a better choice. The atmosphere is super cool, sort of like an urban garden patio with plants everywhere and mood lighting. I definitely snapped a photo of the bar in the back for future backyard renovations. My boyfriend is not vegetarian but after two weeks and a lot of delicious meals, he declared this restaurant the best meal of the trip. Here were the highlights: fried vegetables appetizer, red curry with noodles, homemade tofu, tofu with spicy sauce. I highly recommend this place, especially for vegetarians.
“Delicious food”As a vegetarian I was looking forward to dinning at the hum restaurant on our recent visit to Ho Chi Minh. We were not disappointed. The service was very good, our waiter explained the different meals available as there is a large selection on the menu. We had starters and a main course each with wine. It was really nice to share food with my husband as he is not a vegetarian. He also agreed that the food was delicious. I would have liked to have returned to try other food on the menu but unfortunately our stay in Ho Chi Minh was short. The restaurant was busy we were pleased that we had made a reservation.
“Best food in Ho Chi Minh!”We first tried ....hum that was closest to the war museum but sadly that was under renovation. So we questioned whether or not we should go to the other location, we did and it was the best decision we have made. The food here is exceptional! It’s great to try the local cuisine without having to worry whether your food is truely vegetarian. The price is a little expensive compared to other places but so worth it.
