Celebrity Chef Luke Nguyen Leads New Culinary Experience in Saigon


The Reverie Saigon is endeavouring to deepen its guests’ appreciation of the city and its culinary heritage with a fresh approach involving a celebrity chef and an entire day’s exploration of one of Asia’s burgeoning food capitals.

Guests of the hotel will be able to experience six- to eight-hour expeditions across the city’s culinary landscape with Luke Nguyen, one of Vietnam’s most talented chefs. Privately guided, the tours will introduce guests to major landmarks, tucked-away street vendors, riverside lunch spots, chic restaurants and also hidden bars and sky-high lounges if that’s your scene.

The Australia-born “MasterChef Vietnam” host, cookbook author, restaurateur and television personality is partnering exclusively with The Reverie Saigon on this in-depth exploration of the vibrant dining destination that is bustling Ho Chi Minh City.

The journey begins in the late afternoon with a glimpse of some of the key landmarks located in the city’s District 1 – such as the 139-year-old Notre Dame Cathedral, the historic Central Post Office and the magnificent colonial French Opera House. 

From there, on the menu for the rest of this deep dive into Saigon’s culinary world are a pitstop for banh mi and Vietnamese coffee at a favourite outpost (or two) of Chefs, a short walking tour of residential back alleyways where communal living still thrives and where delicious home-cooking is served right out of residential kitchens, short boat ride to a popular riverside restaurant for cocktails and small bites at sunset, and many more.

Chef Luke’s culinary exploration of Ho Chi Minh City is an optional add-on to The Reverie’s new “Sampling Saigon” foodie package, which invites guests to take in the hotel’s own culinary offerings – including exquisite fine dining Chinese at The Royal Pavilion, or upscale Italian at R&J.

Perfect for weekend getaways, the two-night package is also bookable for weekday breaks (subject to availability) which includes round-trip airport transfers, choice of buffet breakfast at Café Cardinal or via In-Room Dining, and a USD 200 dining credit for use at The Royal Pavilion or R&J.

Chef Luke’s tour starts from USD 850 per person, with a minimum of two persons and a maximum of 10. The price includes all food and drinks for the main tour. Post-dinner bar hopping brings the starting price up to USD 1,150, with food and drinks not included for the bars visited after dinner.
