I’m quite allergic to really expensive restaurants that does not meet the expectations of the palate. I mean if you’re gonna pay much, might as well pay for something that will absolutely make your mouth water.
Before Christmas, it was our 9th year anniversary and hubby brought me to Bitexco Financial Tower. I honestly thought we were going to eat at Hoang Yen Seafood Buffet so I was perplexed when we met a guy in black by the reception area who ushered us to the elevators at the back. *scratches head*
We went up the 50th floor and took another elevator to the 51st— and voila, Eon 51!
My husband is not a cheapskate! Yay!
Entrees start at over 500,000 VND!
The place was dimly lit perfect for dates.
Appetizers complements of the chef.We had lobster for starters. Don’t ask me what it’s called coz I don’t remember! But it was divine (*cringe* I know that’s hardly a word in my vocab) because it melts in your mouth!
We had mushrooms for a side dish. Sorry for all the blurry photos by the way.
Eon 51 has desserts in their menu but none at that time that we really liked BUT they gave us a complimentary dessert which was actually very good!
The staff was awesome and made our evening really enjoyable. But, check your bill before you pay. Since we had two servers, I think they messed up our bill. We were underbilled. We had to point out missing orders. 😛
The best part about eating in Eon 51 is that it has a stunning view of Saigon!
The whole place is surrounded with glass so you have an encumbered view of the cityscape.
While waiting for our food, I went around the restaurant which was thankfully still empty so I had the luxury to take photos without bothering people.
I’ve been wanting to get up Bitexco for the longest time and finally got the chance! Thanks hun!
So how’s Eon 51 in the mouthwatering meter? 4 out of 5 I think. The ambiance and view really got me too! 🙂
Oh and I had a margarita! The last one I had was in 2010. I hope I didn’t get my youngest drunk. 😛
Nice post. Ouch. That’s $45 just for starters. I think “divine” works for this restaurant!
That looks great, maybe my boyfriend will take me there in the future (:
