Luc Binh riverside restaurant at the boutique hotel An Lam Saigon, which is worth a visit even if you're not staying there. A speedboat goes from the city center straight to the hotel's pier, and takes about 20 minutes. It's the perfect spot for a leisurely lunch while watching the Saigon River flow. The food is a fabulous hybrid of Vietnamese and international dishes, made using local organic ingredients. Ho Chi Minh City.
