Renowned for their aroma, heat, sweetness, and sourness, Vietnamese cuisine is largely influenced by neighboring countries China, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand, as well as France (which has played a major part of its history).

Diners will find themselves savoring stir-fried dishes, noodle-based soups, and more; all made with fresh ingredients.

During the food festival, the chefs will present two kinds of classic Vietnamese noodle soups: pho (traditional Vietnamese soup consisting of chicken, beef, flat rice noodles, and herbs) and bun thang (noodle soup originating from Hanoi served with prawn, pork, mushroom, salted egg, and herbs).

Prices start from US$52.70 (PHP$ 2,750) for the Spiral lunch set.
