Jake’s American BBQ

jakes-FB

A great charity event that we are proud to be a part of serving up some great BBQ pulled pork, “West Virginia Style” hot dogs, and apple crisp with ice cream!!

Jake’s BBQ joins Saigon’s growing American barbecue club, offering big portions and food made with passion.

Marinated, grilled meat bridges the culinary worlds of Vietnam and the US, which explains why fans of dishes such as bun thit nuong will happily cross over to pork shoulder cooked low and slow. Bearing that broad appeal in mind, both expats and Vietnamese have driven Saigon’s American barbecue spots to wild success recently, and attracted the newest kid on the block, 36-year-old chef Jake Pulkrabek.

KOTO Training Restaurant

koto5

KOTO stands for “Know one, teach one”, and represents the philosophy that learning should be passed on, and is meant to be shared. This is the essential idea of KOTO founder, Jimmy Pham, a Vietnamese-Australian who, more than 10 years ago, opened a training centre in hospitality in Hanoi, giving disadvantaged youth the possibility to learn and thrive in their lives. As a social enterprise, KOTO has trained over 600 students in two training centres in Hanoi and Saigon, with 200 concurrently enrolled. Many graduates of KOTO continue their career development by working at KOTO Training Restaurants and other businesses of KOTO Enterprise, supporting new trainees according to the motto—Know one, teach one.—and so the learning circle endures.
KOTO serves as a platform for real life hospitality training as well as a source of income to support the welfare and training of the students, and encompasses two Training Restaurants, an online bakery, a cooking class, and a catering service.

Evan Williams Bourbon

evan-williams

Traditional Bourbon
When it comes to good bourbon, our proof is in the barrel

Evan Williams is a smooth, easy to drink Bourbon named after Evan Williams who, in 1783, opened Kentucky’s first commercial distillery along the banks of the Ohio River. Many years and barrels later, we’re still producing Bourbon with the same time-honored methods that Evan Williams did years ago.

Today, Evan Williams is the second largest selling Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in the US and the world, distilled just a few blocks from the site where Evan himself built his distillery.
