When in Saigon, you should definitely try out authentic Vietnamese cuisine but… I have to admit, Saigon is also a gastronomic center of international dishes. And a week ago, Katrina introduced me to Ole! — currently #6 in Tripadvisor.
Being Filipino, I am no stranger to Spanish food. In fact, most of our local dishes are adopted Spanish dishes. Upon entering Ole!, it was actually like coming home.
When eating out with Katrina, I usually defer to her food choices. 😛 We had the croquetas, chorizo, and the fideua. I miss paella but the fideua was delicious and wasn’t too heavy on the stomach. One order of Fideua is good for 4 people! Kat and I couldn’t finish it!
Chef Tony and his wife, Monica are very visible in Ole! Such a warm couple!
Craving for some home-cooked Spanish meal? Ole! is a must visit!
