With Locals: Lunch at Tiffany’s

Last May 16 is Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day and with 200 Free Meals being offered by With Locals, we just couldn’t resist to book lunch! So we went ahead and booked Saturday lunch at Tiffany’s! photo IMG_1933_zps0a273ac7.jpgTiffany and her husband, Anh, welcomed us to their lovely home along with her 2 cats and 1 dog. This is Bon from London. 😉

 photo IMG_1963_zpsd2a7ee7f.jpgTiffany is a Hotel/Hospitality graduate and spent 2 years in Singapore as part of the course program. She has also worked for Park Hyatt Saigon and just most recently let go of her coffee shop.

 photo IMG_1980_zps95e44499.jpgHer equally talented husband is a photographer, videographer, and movie-maker. Oh and it was late when I found out that Anh is 1st runner up of Vietnam Idol way back in 2007 when it was first introduced in Vietnam. Can you imagine that?

Please go on ahead and book a lunch or dinner with Tiffany and Anh! We had an excellent experience! It was so easy coordinating with them and they let us choose from their 5 set menu. You can also request Vietnamese dishes you want to try! 😉
