It has been almost a year now since we moved to Vietnam with the kids. During this time we have spent a lot of it exploring new cafe’s and restaurants to eat. We discovered L’usine during our first month and it quickly became a favourite spot for me to bring my mac and spend all day there. It is easy to fall in love with this place with their industrial style fit out, beautiful warehouse ceilings, large windows and oh my amazing lunch menu. If you follow me on Facebook or instagram you will have seen my posts at L’usine and how much I love this space, I was beyond excited to be invited to try their dinner menu. YES they do dinner!

Located on the first floor at 151 Dong Khoi street, district 1. Through the Art Arcade, take a right and up the stairs, the restaurant sits next to the cafe.

A beautiful long communal table takes the centre of the restaurant with the outdoor seating overlooking Dong Khoi street and the Caravelle hotel.

The food was next. We ordered the Warm Octopus salad with charred onions, peppers, radicchio & dragon beans to start and it tasted as amazing as it sounded. The lighting was getting darker, so I don’t think my food photos do it justice.

Their store located behind the cafe is worth visiting. You will find beautiful men’s and women’s clothing from imported and local designers, bags, jewellery, accessories beautiful homewares, childrens toys, candles and gift ideas. There is no way I go to L’usine and not stop by the store, just walking through is uplifting with all the vintage props and displays. I really want one of those vintage singer sewing machines!
