Blanc Restaurant

Fusion in Ho Chi Minh City

Image by James Pham Lonely Planet

Housed in a beautifully restored French colonial-era building, Blanc serves up refined Vietnamese fusion amidst an eclectic collection of antiques and artwork. Thought is given to innovative flavours and textures, as in the Norwegian salmon atop a bed of coconut cut into noodles. The twist: the staff are hearing impaired, and diners are encouraged to interact with them using pictographs of Vietnamese sign language.

The restaurant is located at the end of an alleyway and shares an entrance with sister eatery Noir, Dining in the Dark.
