En Rose Tea Room & Boutique in District 7


Even though ‘God Save The Queen’ isn’t a common song choice for many of us, the British monarch’s lifestyle and age-old traditions have captured our imagination. If there is any royal tradition that we can emulate without breaking our bank, it’s to regally indulge in a spot of tea in the afternoon.

Closer to home, there are many spots in Saigon where modern variations of tea are served. Those looking for a place packed with old-school British glamor for a classy photo-op with the clique, check out En Rose Tea Room & Boutique
