In our COVID-19 world of social-distancing and uncertainty, here’s one thing you can be absolutely certain about – this quality list of Saigon deliveries you need to try this April.
From Vietnamese, Indian, Western, beer and wine, these suggestions will bring a bit more light into your life and warmth into your belly.
Award-winning chef Peter Cuong Franklin and his team at Anan Saigon have jumped into the delivery ring with a bang.
Before COVID-19, Anan Saigon didn’t offer deliveries, but you wouldn’t know it judging by the quality of their offerings.
Their mouthwatering wagyu beef brisket banh mi with pate, tomato and cucumber is one of the best you’ll ever try, while their chicken and banana blossom salad has a taste that just simply reminds you of Vietnam.
For sweetooths, Anan’s gorgeous looking creme brulée featuring Dalat strawberries from Vietnam’s central highlands is just the ticket.
Beervana has been quenching Vietnam’s thirst for craft beer for the past couple of years now and they’ve come to the delivery party with some great special offers and even an initiative during these tough times where with every order, they give back to their partners in support.

Everyone loves great Indian cuisine, so you need look no further than Baba’s Kitchen.
Robin and his crew have been long-established in Saigon and they also have an outlet in Hoi An.
For those who like their curries mild, give Baba’s butter chicken a run, but if you’re looking for something a bit more authentic and with some extra kick, order their palak paneer.

Another product of Indian origin offering deliveries in Saigon is BIRA91.
Their current offerings include their Blonde Summer Lager (ABV 5%), Belgian-style White Ale (ABV 4.9%) and IPA (ABV 6.5%), or if you’d like to try some of each, order their variety pack.
