Le Little Saigon

French in Drum Tower & Dongcheng North

The menu at this stylish bistro – with a nice roof terrace in summer – is a mix of classic Vietnamese – phở (Vietnamese soup; ¥35), lemon chicken, shrimps in tamarind sauce – and French – beef bourguignon and foie gras. The desserts are especially good. The decor and decent wine list are decidedly Gallic, making it popular with French expats and anyone in search of a lovingly prepared cup of coffee, whether it’s the European or Vietnamese variety.
