NewsVietnamese Foodies opens in Downtown Dubai

Words by Lucy Land

A new serving of this popular Vietnamese restaurant gets a fresh look

The award-winning Vietnamese Foodies celebrates the launch of its second venue in Burj Vista, Downtown Dubai today. The much-loved homegrown concept, with its original outpost located in JLT, is known for its healthy, fresh dishes inspired by the tastes of Ho Chi Minh, at wallet-friendly prices.

The new restaurant, located opposite Dubai Opera, boasts views of the Burj Khalifa and offers most of the JLT branch’s favourite dishes. So expect paleo, vegan, vegetarian, dairy- and gluten-free options.

However, there are a number of dishes exclusive to Vietnamese Foodies Downtown. Bespoke dishes such as aromatic roasted duck with Bao buns, crispy chicken in lime leaf salt, and prawns with fish roe and dynamite sauce.

Phoodie delights

It features both indoor and outdoor seating, with space for 70 inside and 40 outside – making this Downtown haunt bigger than the original JLT spot.

Its interior boasts high ceilings and a minimalist, contemporary décor. While the open kitchen concept showcases live cooking and a traditional rotisserie so you can watch the chefs at work.

From July 2019, the new location will also offer cooking classes to “passionate phoodies”, hosted by owner and executive chef Lily Hoa Nguyen.
