Head Chef Theign Yie Phan grew up in Singapore where she was surrounded by good food – including the dishes prepared by her mother. She studied in the United States, where she was moved by the inspiring graduation speech given by well-known American Chef Charlie Trotter, and decided that cooking was what she wanted to do.
Despite her family’s reservations, she went to culinary school in Sydney. A stint at the Four Seasons Sydney convinced her parents that she had made a good choice, and Theign then came to Hong Kong eight years ago to further develop her culinary career.

Green Papaya Salad
Green papaya is sliced thinly and mixed with pickles, cashews and spices, and topped with a couple of pieces of deep-fried rice paper to add some crunch. This Saigonese salad is less spicy than the Thai version, and makes for a fresh and invigorating start to the meal.

Crispy Eggplant
Coated with a thin layer of cornstarch before frying, these eggplant fries are served with fresh herbs and chili. The vegetables are then glazed with a sweet-and-sour sauce made from black vinegar, sugar and garlic. These eggplant chips are unexpectedly light in texture, making a delicious snack.

Che means dessert in Vietnamese. Sago mixed with smoked coconut cream is layered at the bottom and covered with diced tropical fruit including kiwi and dragon fruit, plus honey cornflakes for a contrasting texture.

“Vietnam is not only about pho,” said Restaurant Manager Marc Hofmann, referring to the country’s famous soup noodle dish.  

“We define ourselves with unique and healthy Saigonese dishes.”

As its name suggests, Le Garcon Saigon offers a dining experience that blends French elements with the vibrant flavours of Vietnamese cooking. A former colony of France, Vietnam has been influenced by the country’s cooking style and architecture. This is particularly the case in the southern city of Saigon, now known as Ho Chi Minh City. 

The restaurant’s bright and welcoming dining space reimagines a brasserie in Paris with rich turquoise colours and artistic paintings. Vintage accents, including the tiled floor, luxurious banquettes and wicker chairs, reflect the romance of French dining. Le Garcon Saigon complements its delicious Vietnamese dishes with a well-curated list of French wines.
