The Shibuya Wagon (Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh)

Matcha Toast 95,000 VND (S$5.70)

The Shibuya Wagon's bright colour signboard was so eye catching that we saw it on a mini bus while on the way back to our hotel. We did a quick google on this place and found that it was a Japanese restaurant serving Japanese food and desserts (e.g. Shibuya Toast).

The first thought that came to our mind when we read Shibuya Toast was our experience at After You Dessert Café in Bangkok. The thought of being able to try this again was too hard to resist. Hence, we slotted The Shibuya Wagon in for tea. 
When we arrived at 4pm on a weekday, the eatery was empy
With the environment, it did not felt like we have stepped into a Vietnamese restaurant. Even the menu was in English language only.

There was a variety of toasts to choose from such as the Original Shibuya Toast, Stick Toffee Toast and Mega Toast. We settled for the Matcha Toast 95,000 VND (S$5.70). The Matcha Toast was served with Matcha ice cream, whipped cream and syrup.

Sadly, the Matcha Toast failed to match up to our expectations. The toast was dense and not as soft and fluffy as what I had expected. In addition, the buttery fragrant in the toast was lacking. What a let down.

  1. What a let down because from the pic, the toast appears impressive.

  2. You may try your luck at Watcha Cafe in HCM city district 1 , new kind of honey toast. They specialized in Matcha and Japanese Desserts.

    1. Thanks for the tip! I am back in SG now.

  3. Ho Chi Minh City? For leisure or work?
