Quan Ut Ut, District 1

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.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
