Chao Ba: phrase / pronunciation [chow ba] / 1. Greetings Auntie
The Vietnamese culture is warm, generous and welcoming. Chao Ba is an homage to all the women who have nurtured, fed and raised us with love, care and delicious food. You know who you are! All we had to say is those two magic words – Chao Ba – and we got a seat at the dinner table.
Now, quick history lesson – our story starts in 1859. Ho Chi Minh City was conquered by France leaving an undeniable influence on everything from elaborate architecture to street names and most notably, the food. Growing up, we got accustomed to the hustle and bustle of a changing nation. Our people embraced it and it wasn’t long before baguettes and coffee made their way into our kitchens. It is this spirit that shines through our inspired menu at Chao Ba. A love for shared experience with family and friends, and a passion for authentic Vietnamese cuisine using only the very best produce is the driving force behind Chao Ba.
