Ăn Uống Eat. Drink. Vietnam is the latest eatery in Richmond that has tongues wagging. Situated on Bridge Road, there is no mistaking Ăn Uống Eat. Drink. Vietnam’s bold presence – its buzzing vibe, fresh and colourful aesthetic draw you in for what will be a culinary experience not easily forgotten. Ăn Uống, literally meaning ‘eat, drink’ in Vietnamese, is the brainchild of three friends, Richard Nguyen, Zico Lu, and Le, who hail from different regions in Vietnam.
Perched at a table by the window, right near the bar, Milk Bar Mag were treated to a front-row seat to the fun and upbeat environment Ăn Uống prides itself on. Now to the highlights, – and there were many – you cannot go past the pumpkin spring rolls. A far cry from their store-bought counterparts, these delicious morsels are filled with spiced pumpkin. This is an appetiser that you make time for.
Rarely does a restaurant balance cultural authenticity and modern tastes well, but Ăn Uống Eat. Drink. Vietnam’s rich knowledge of local cuisine and modern appetites are second to none.
