Le Petit Saigon (little brother and next door neighbour to Saigonese grill house, Le Garçon Saigon) serves up the city’s favourite banh mi. Like the best banh mi shops in Vietnam, the menu is focused and the sandwiches are offered for takeaway only - guests are encouraged to perch on the stoop outside and enjoy their sandwiches curbside as they do in Vietnam.
Growing up the culinary influences around Chef Theign only brought about a love affair with journalism and a degree from the University of Wisconsin. Inspired after a speech by the late Chef Charlie Trotter, she enrolled in culinary courses at Sydney’s Le Cordon Bleu. With experience at The Woollahra Hotel and The Pelican in Singapore, a chance meeting with Chef Jowett Yu of Ho Lee Fook, brought Theign to her next adventure: Hong Kong. As Head Chef of Hong Kong’s Saigonese grill house, Le Garçon Saigon, she brings all of her experience to a city that feels like home.
