This August, The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai at The Walk, JBR will mark the launch of a new Vietnamese themed signature evening brunch experience at the much-loved dining institution – Blue Jade.
The Saigon Social brunch will launch to guests on Thursday 5th August 2021 and will take connoisseurs of Asian cuisine, on a culinary journey from the tranquil waters of the historic Saigon River, across the breath-taking islands of Ha Long Bay, via the bustling backstreets of Hanoi to modern day Ho Chi Minh City’s trendy District 1 and District 4. Featuring a sharing style menu, with signature dishes, succulent street food and a modern take on classic Vietnamese cuisine, this Asian inspired brunch was conceptualized by Chef Ta Van Houng, Chef De Cuisine at Blue Jade. Chef Ta Van has led Blue Jade since its inception in 2013. Born and raised in the northern part of Vietnam, he was instrumental in crafting the restaurant’s one-of-a-kind Pan-Asian dining experience, which is all about celebrating the mystique and authenticity of Asian cuisine in a single resort setting.
Inspired by the vibrant sights and sounds of Ho Chi Minh City, the new brunch offers an elevated take on Vietnamese specialities, with dishes such as Pho Bò (Vietnamese National Noodle Soup) and Goi Cuon Tôm Thit (Seafood Cold Rolls) on offer, alongside mouth-watering dishes such as Cá Nướng Lá sen (Ginger Lotus Sea Bass) and Bò lúc lắc (Stir Fried Beef Tenderloin), Ga Nuong La Chanh (Grilled Marinated Chicken with Lime Leaves).
In homage to the Vietnamese coffee shop culture guests can sample a traditional egg coffee upon arrival.
