{Saigon Eats} MOF Japanese Sweets & Coffee

For a gelato fix (read – not frozen yoghurt, most Saigonites sweet cold treat of choice these days) my favourite place in the city is MOF (Ministry of Food). The Japanese dessert cafe is home to a gorgeous fish motif covered wall, a delectable display of gelato and an intriguing menu of mostly matcha flavoured desserts. Matcha rears its head in the gelato counter too, and the deep green result is strong and bitter – a glass of Japanese green tea brought to life in icy form. The Japanese tangerine is a little mild but tangy and delicious, but my absolute favourite is the Ferrero Rocher flavour. Bonus points for the well stocked magazine rack!

MOF, 30 Le Loi Blvd, D1, Saigon

    Sounds delish. I just had custard ice-cream. To die for…love it.

    Hmm..sounds interesting! Actually I really love trying unusual ice-cream flavours (wasabi etc.)

    Thanks for this tip Liz.

    English magazines in Vietnam can be quite a premium. And for this, I’ll for sure pay MOF a visit 🙂
