The Fig is a hidden treasure in Ho Chi Minh City. Located on a small side-street of Nguyen Van Troi you find this oasis of calm. Decorated with comfortable furniture and Buddhist decorations, this coffee shop alse blends Vietnamese, Thai and Western cuisines in a subtle way.

If The Fig was not so far from both my office and home, I would be here all the time. It is like the perfect living room with a garden and people serving you great food and drinks.

I go here to get things done on my laptop or to just relax for a bit. It is one of those places where you can just sit and work a whole day and be very productive thanks to both the atmosphere and the constant flow of snacks and drinks.

It is a quiet coffee shop with comfortable furniture and the food and drinks are better than most restaurants in town. Prices are reasonable too with drinks around 40,000₫ and most meals a little over 100,000₫. I tend to go for the beef with rice set, which comes with a small spicy sauce. This is also a coffee shop where I always have dessert as they seem to be trying out new things now and then, and I have yet to be disappointed.

I would recommend The Fig for people who like to get out of the office and work somewhere else for a while, or just someone who wants to have a nice meal with friends in a casual place.
