Apartment manager launches restaurant within serviced apartment tower in District 3.

by Khanh Chi

Seeing an opportunity in District 3’s busy food scene, Oakwood Apartments Ho Chi Minh City has recently launched a new all-day dining restaurant, no.18 Lounge.

Located on the ground floor of the serviced apartment tower and open from 6.30am until 10pm, the restaurant serves a set breakfast until 10am for just VND200,000 ($8.8) and a wide range of a la carte Asian and Western cuisine for the rest of the day, reasonably priced at between VND30,000 and 100,000 ($1.3 and 4.4).

Along with a new food menu, no.18 Lounge also offers a wide range of beverages, with nothing beating the smell of a rich latte, the taste of healthy fresh fruit juice, or the unique flavor of Vietnam’s well-loved iced milk coffee.

“Our neighborhood is simply amazing for local food and entertainment, but we also understand that, particularly after a long day, sometimes residents and guests just want to eat in the comfort of their own apartment,” said Mr. Miquel A. P. Martorell, General Manager of Oakwood Apartments Ho Chi Minh City. “We wanted our restaurant to give guests first-hand experience with the fresh, delicious flavor of Vietnamese food while also providing dishes that make them feel at home.”

The menu includes such Vietnamese favorites as pho and braised pork belly as well as a variety of Western staples, like Spaghetti Bolognese and club sandwiches. no.18 Lounge is open to residents and guests of Oakwood Apartments Ho Chi Minh City as well as the surrounding community.

In addition to a full-service restaurant, residents and guests can call the service desk to enjoy in-room dining. As an added bonus, depending on the length of stay, corporate guests can take advantage of a discounted breakfast.

The launch of the restaurant saw a small gathering of in-house residents and guests, close partners, and the nearby community.

“We wanted the first night of the relaunched restaurant to resemble a family get-together,” said Mr. Martorell. “We’re really excited to be able to create a family atmosphere for residents and guests living far from home.”

Under the world-renowned leadership of Oakwood Asia, Oakwood Apartments Ho Chi Minh City is located along the edge of the historic Cu Xa Do Thanh area of District 3 and the bustling heart of the CBD in District 1.

Oakwood Apartments Ho Chi Minh City features 68 fully-furnished apartments ranging from studio to one- and two-bedroom units. A haven for short-term guests and long-term residents, the residence offers a wading pool with lounge seating, a gym, and a residents’ lounge. These facilities are typical of the Oakwood Asia brand, which guarantees a cost-effective and fuss-free stay.

Oakwood Apartments Ho Chi Minh City counts a number of museums, boutique shops, local eateries and seasoned tailors as its neighbors.
