Christmas is here and this means that our chocolate truffles are back on the menu. This year's favorites are the black chocolate with honey, white chocolate with a caramelized heart of lime, the cashew praline and the intense black chocolate with Phu Quoc black pepper. We also have a new 80% chocolate bar with honey and bee pollen - no sugar! Christmas never tasted so good…
Our homemade banana bread is now better than ever – thanks to La Petite Epicerie Saigon's selection of Vietnamese jams. A staff favorite is their delicious guava-lemongrass combo, mango-ginger is another strong contender, or if you cannot have enough banana – the super scrumptious banana-chocolate jam. All served on our new custom made plates.
Say hi to our newcomer on the menu - Ca Phe Sura Bo. It’s a creamy milkshake with generous amounts of strong Vietnamese robusta coffee, a dash of cinnamon, avocado, fresh milk and a little bit of condensed milk to top it all up. Perfect for breakfast, or whenever you need a refreshing fuel for the body. Come and try!
We are very happy to finally be able to offer a 100% natural bug & mosquito repellent in our farmshop. The spray is formulated from witch hazel and citronella, lemongrass, peppermint and lavender essential oils - and with no alcohol or chemicals such as DEET added. It will leave a pleasant smell around you and keep those mosquitos at a distance. Suitable for the sensitive skin as well as for babies. Made by our friends at Savon de Saigon.
It's like Christmas every time we receive a box from our favorite pottery designer, HeyCamelBazaar in Saigon. Today he sent us this brand new item - the dot saucer - which comes in many different shapes and dots… A beautiful piece of art, as always. And in a very limited edition, as always…
Saigon Charlie's 100% natural smoked chili sauces are now available in Hoi An - at your favorite café and farm shop of course! There are three different kinds of sauces: The Hot Hué is, of course, Huuueeeey hot, while Hanoi is a smokey Northern version of classic Vietnamese chili sauce, and Sweet Saigon offer a perfect balance between sweet and heat. Come and feel the fire!
We are so proud to be the first place outside of HCMC to have Saigon Cider on the menu. This handcrafted strong real is truly one of its kind, brewed and bottled in Saigon and available in three delicious flavours: cinnamon & vanilla, ginger and chilli. Peace, love and apples everyone!
No, we didn't do this beautiful creation. It was made by the people behind the awesome travel and art website @pulpcollectors who came to visit us this morning for a talk and some photo shooting. The result can be seen on their website in a couple of weeks. Our Redhead juice have never looked so good! #hoian #vietnam #cocoboxvietnam #juicebar #organic
The tac season haven't really started yet, so we were very thrilled to find this super fruit at the market today, packed with 70 times more lycopene than tomatoes and 10 times more beta carotene than carrots. Now, back to the juice station and create some deep-red super juices. Come and try!
