Opera @ Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

September 9, 2010

HCMC Part III: A Sunday prosecco brunch at the hotel that hosted Brad & Angelina during their 2006 visit to Vietnam. Alas, neither of them was around on this recent weekend.

Not exactly the longest buffet counter ever, but quality trumps quantity here.

Parma ham with melons was a highlight. We gobbled up seemingly endless slices; it's an awesome change to enjoy a hotel breakfast spread that includes pork.

Pork sausage, beef tenderloin, and lamb rack & loin. Satisfyingly juicy and flavorful; carnivores will find plenty to keep them happy here.

Since this is basically an Italian restaurant, several items made to order include a selection of pasta and this saffron seafood risotto.

Wood-fired pizza & foccacia. We skipped these, since they looked too filling.

Desserts comprise the usual suspects, such as creme caramel, tiramisu, & ice cream.

The free flow of prosecco kept us brilliantly bubbly.

And no, we didn't stay here. But it seemed like an excellent hotel.
