ANAN Saigon

Chef Peter Cuong Franklin brings a hip, new Vietnamese culinary experience to the Saigon dining scene

After many years abroad in New York, London and Hong Kong, award-winning Chef Peter Cuong Franklin returns to his home country to introduce his “Cuisine Moi,” or New Vietnamese Cuisine, at ANAN Saigon.

Moi” in Vietnamese means “new, fresh and modern.” This new cuisine is about food that is modern and yet has a story and reference points to traditional techniques and local ingredients. The street-style pizza is based on a regional dish from his hometown in Dalat in the central highlands of Vietnam. The pizza is made with local artisanal cheese, pork sausage products from an expert French charcutier based in Dalat, and the pizza is topped with a bouquet of local fresh herbs, a distinctive feature of Vietnamese gastronomy. The Da Lat-Style Pizza and Cha Ca A La Meunière are two examples of the New Vietnamese style of cooking on offer at ANAN Saigon. Other ANAN signature dishes include: Pho Bo Roll grilled beef (steamed rice roll, bean sprouts, pickled carrot, basil, sawtooth), Cobia Sashimi (shiso, lemongrass oil, Nha Trang green chili sauce), and Banh Xeo Taco (prawns, pork, bean sprouts, herbs, mustard greens).

An acknowledged expert in Vietnamese and Asian cuisine, Chef Peter re-interprets the country’s fresh and vibrant street food culture and incorporates French technique and quality market fresh ingredients to create a focused menu of locally sourced charcuterie and cheeses, flavorsome street food-inspired small plates, and specialties from a custom grill with coconut charcoal flavors.

ANAN Vietnamese-inspired cocktails bring the tropical flavors of fresh local ingredients to new life. Signature cocktails include the House Signature (dark rum, pandan, ginger, soy milk and house-made fresh tofu), the Cho Cu Mai Tai (gold rum, Malibu, cucumber, pineapple, lime, sesame oil), the Spiced Phojito (rum, sugar, herbs and lime, the Mulberry Clover Club – gin, Dalat mulberry, apple vinegar, Angostura bitters, egg white) and, last but not least, the Black Tea Tra Da (tequila blanco, agave syrup, com ruou rice wine, lychee and lime).

The ANAN Saigon experience includes the restaurant on the ground and first floor, an outdoor deck area with bia hoi and street food vibe, and a sophisticated rooftop bar on the 6th floor with spectacular views of Bitexco Financial Tower against the panoramic Saigon skyline.
