Fanny Ice Cream (Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh)

Demi Bol 149,000 VND (S$8.95): Chocolate Sauce and Almonds
After our dinner at 3T Quan Nuong, we proceeded to the building next door for dessert! Our destination was Fanny Ice Cream, a highly raved about french owned ice cream parlor in Vietnam. I heard about this place on Celine's Carpe diem. 一期一会 blog.

Fanny Ice Cream was established in Vietnam in 1994 by Jean-Marc Bruno, a pastry specialist graduated from the renowned Le Nôtre Paris school. It manufactures 100% natural ice cream with natural ingredients, using tradition method which the Jean-Marc Bruno acquired in the school. Today, it manufactures and distributes its premium ice cream to over 1000 restaurants and hotels, and has 7 ice cream parlors in Vietnam.
Fanny Ice Cream's outlet at Ton That Thiep Street was huge, occupying 2 units.
This was what greeted us when we went in through the entrance. Clean, warm, cozy, air conditioned with a pink theme. Even the waitress were wearing pink too!
Part of the selection of ice cream with real fruits being displayed. I was wondering how come it seems like no one ate
Fridge with more ice creams, probably for takeaway.
As we were undecided on what to order, we were lead to the next unit where they had more seats available. They provided both alfresco and indoor sittings. All their other customers chose to seat outside (i.e. alfresco). But we chose to take the indoor seats and we were the only ones =).
This was what was on each table. By the way, the flowers were real.
Menu
Part of the menu. We decided to order the Demi Bol after pondering for sometime as there was so many choices and all the pictures were so beautifully taken!
Demi Bol 149,000 VND (S$8.95)
We ordered the Demi Bol 149,000 VND (S$8.95) which allowed us to try a little of everything. There were a mix of sorbet and ice cream, chocolate sauce, almonds, caramel sauce, whipped cream and fruit salad.
Mix of sorbet and ice cream
From the left to right: (i) Chocolate, Pistachio and Mint Chocolate ice cream, (ii) Mango sorbet, Vanilla and Stracciatella ice cream, (iii) Strawberry sorbet, Vanilla and Chocolate Coffee ice cream, (iv) Green Tea, Coconut and Vanilla Macadamia ice cream, and (v) Strawberry and Cookies ice cream, Mix Berries sorbet.
Fruit Salad, Caramel Sauce and White Chocolate
Demi Bol was very beautifully presented, just like how it looked like on the menu. I was impressed with the effort. The mix of ice cream and sorbet was very good and allowed us to discover so many flavours. We also had the choice of adding chocolate sauce, fruit, caramel sauce or white chocolate as a topping. For just 149,000 VND (S$8.95), the Demi Bol was so value for money! If you are around the area, you should give this a try! Great place and ambience for dessert!

Good news for Fanny Ice Cream fans. Fanny Ice Cream is in Singapore! The franchise outlet was opened in Feb 2014 at 99 East Coast Road, Singapore 428795 (opposite 112 Katong). It is Fanny Ice Cream's first outlet outside Vietnam. The prices are charged in Singapore Dollars (of course!). The Demi Bol would cost $25 in Singapore!!!
