For every shop that closes in Phu My Hung, another one opens. A month ago, our neighbourhood grocery Fivimart closed down. Since we got here in 2009, that’s where we used to go to until we moved further away. I miss the anh oi who usually delivered our grocery and I wonder if he has a found a job already — I hope he has.
So anyway, along Nguyen Duc Canh St., a new gourmet shop opened up most recently called Premium Gourmet Store. I wasn’t actually sure what it was going to be during its construction stage with it being housed in a 4-floor villa.
As it turned out, it housed a grocery shop for the first 2 floors which included a grocery area.
It sells both locally and imported goods. There’s a wine and cheese section (that rivals Annam Gourmet!!!).
There’s fresh seafood too!
The 2 upper floors housed the restaurant.
The place actually looked really polished —
The 4th floor dining area is good for private functions —
The 3rd floor dining area is good for small and big groups —
Our board game night group decided to have dinner here. I ordered baked clams topped with cheese and potato —
and chicken with gravy over potatoes with broccoli. Both were actually pretty good!
Jelda ordered the salmon steak with spinach. I tasted the spinach and it was buttery and delicious actually (sorry for the blurry photos!)!
This was the calamari ordered by Mabelle —
and the salmon with pork claypot by Veni —
Rina ordered the carbonara but was a bit late so I didn’t get to take a photo. It looked creamy and with us finishing all our food, I guess the verdict is — the Premium Gourmet Store is something worth exploring. The price of the food is from low to mid-range so it’s easy on the pocket! 🙂
Oh and I’d really like to come back for the cheese! And now, I don’t have to cross the street to Annam Gourmet (so sorry!). BUT I’d still have to check the prices. Will check that out next time.
