HCMC Mooncake Contestants

On the eve of the Mid-Autumn Festival, Ed Weinberg and Hoa Le gathered together the soon-to-be-recipients of the season’s most notable gift. With two blind tastings set up, one in Hanoi and one in Saigon, they got them to take a long hard look at what’s inside those beautiful boxes. Photos by Mads Monsen and Nguyen Bao Ngoc

Scott and Binh’s

Scott and Binh’s is one of those restaurants that people travel to for the food. Set in the Bizu Boutique Hotel’s Phu My Hung location (15-17 Cao Trieu Phat, Q7), the 20-minute drive from Ho Chi Minh City’s centre is well worth it for American comfort food they specialise in, especially if you need to take a breather from Asian cuisine.
