Hello everybody ! I'm from Vietnam. Wow, how wonderful menu is ! I'm hungry now kkkk. Maybe I order roast chicken and potatoes first, then I will eat grilled fish. I'll try to order all foods in this menu haha, because I'm quite fat and I am voracious. Finally I choose Irish cream coffee for my dessert.

The menu is so attractive and delicious . It makes me feel tasty and I would like order roast chicken and potatoes , then i choose ice-cream for desserts to make my body better after eating the greasy main course. So one day I would like to introduce my country's culinary culture.
