Food Trip: Central Restaurant

 photo 20130411_114348_zps5853c11a.jpgDon’t you just love this lobby with the picturesque painting of a lady in a cyclo with the People’s Committee Building as the backdrop? Just lovely!

This is actually Liberty Central’s lobby along Le Thanh Ton St. in District 1 just a few meters away from Ben Thanh Market. I was only able to see this place because of a friend who had her birthday lunch at the Central Restaurant at the 1st floor of this hotel.

Try the place too during the weekends for their steak special at 599kVND.

Since the place is small, you really have to make a reservation to this place. But it’s good since it means that you don’t have to deal with a crowd. 😉
