Red Door Cafe

Feb 25, 2019

Duck through the art arcade at 151 Dong Khoi (never mind the cheap knickknacks and ersatz Klimts), head down the hallway and turn right, then walk up to the third floor to find Red Door, where a discerning crowd of coffee lovers confabulates over cold brews and drip pours. The Saigonese owner —who was formerly a biochemist in the U.S.— curates an ever rotating selection of single-origin roasts from the world over while adorning his walls with the work of contemporary artists. Back on ground level, you can dig into a bowl of bun thit nuong (vermicelli noodles) at a 60-year-old no-name institution behind the parked bikes. fb.com/reddoorspace.saigon; coffee from VND65,000.
