So there we were, five girls in a taxi, off to Chim Sao- a local Vietnamese restaurant. Because they said that Chim Sao actually refers to a bird, I just had to google it to satisfy my curiosity.
Chim Sao is a restaurant and an art gallery. For seating options, there are regular tables and chairs at the first floor and cushions and low tables on the second floor. No footwear is allowed upstairs too. So if this makes you feel uncomfortable, you can always stay downstairs. We headed upstairs and sat on the cushions. The atmosphere upstairs was more relaxed which was nice.
Here's a rundown of what we had for lunch.
We also ordered the fried oyster cake. Although I didn't taste any of the oysters, it was still good. This reminds me of Singapore's "carrot cake" which doesn't have any carrots.
