HO CHI MINH CITY | Quán Ụt Ụt, which translates to ‘Restaurant Oink Oink’, is an American BBQ and craft beer venue that serves a variety of low and slow BBQ dishes with a focus on pork. The restaurant was founded by Aussie Tim Scott, Frenchman Albin Deforges and American Mark Gustafson in 2014 (the trio also own 60 tap craft beer venue BiaCraft), and has been continuously popular since then.
The venue is simple and pared back, with large communal tables designed to keep a festive vibe about the place. Meat is smoked and grilled on site over cashew wood, using a mixture of high quality local and imported meat. Customer favourites include the pork ribs, spicy Italian sausage, and the bacon burger (the bacon is cured on site). For those who aren’t in the mood for BBQ, a range of affordable bar snacks like shitake bombs, and crumbed fried mushrooms are offered and go well with beer.
Speaking of beer, Quán Ụt Ụt offers their house brewed beers on tap, along with guest beers from other local breweries and a bottle selection featuring local beers and imports. Unsurprisingly, given that it’s owned by the same guys who own BiaCraft, the beer selection is excellent and well thought out.
If you can’t make it to the original Quán Ụt Ụt, there’s a second at 60 Truong Sa Street, in Binh Thanh District.
