A little piece of Paris is set to come to Ho Chi Minh City with the opening on October 24 of the new flagship Brodard Restaurant - Tea House - Pastry on Dong Khoi Street in the heart of the downtown area.

Brodard Bakery has been producing high-quality baked goods in Vietnam since 1948. The new flagship Brodard has an extensive menu featuring a wide selection of specialty breads, pastries, cookies, and cakes. There is also a range of coffees, specialty teas, juices, smoothies, and ice creams.

The ground floor patisserie will feature home-made pastries and chocolates and coffee by Perfetto Caffe. The centerpiece of the venue is a stunning open pastry kitchen.

The new location will also introduce “The delights of France in the heart of Saigon” with a traditional brasserie including an extensive list of French wines on the first floor. Classic French dishes on the menu will include Bouillabaisse of slow-cooked seafood; Lamb bourguignon with organic carrot and onion; Lobster thermidor with organic greens; and Poached eggs with foie-gras, asparagus, and truffles.

Mr. Kai Speth, Vice President Operations and Business Performance at the WMC Group, which operates Brodard, said the Restaurant - Tea House - Pastry evokes the French heritage of the city. “The Brodard name has been synonymous with quality for decades, and with its prime location on Dong Khoi Street it is sure to become an essential destination,” he said.

The elegant colonial-era façade of the building has been fully restored, while the interior is style personified, with black and white marble tile floors and chandeliers hanging from vaulted ceilings.

As a special opening promotion, guests at Brodard Restaurant - Tea House - Pastry will receive 20 per cent off their bill until November 10.
