The shortest route to joy is food — good, hearty comfort food. It soothes your soul and it’s best for when you need a hug. Sometimes it’s not the healthiest of choices. But let's be real, what’s better than winding down on a weekend with your comfort meal to fuel your Netflix marathon?

Pizza Belga

The menu at Pizza Belga couldn't care less about modesty when it comes to the abundance and quality of their ingredients. If you love cheese, try their 4-5 types of cheese pizza. They also have vegan options like the Chèvre Chaud pizza with honey and walnut, or the pesto burrata pizza. The burrata will be packed individually for delivery to ensure optimal freshness.

For lunch, try their panuozzo — a flatbread sandwich, stuffed with savory goodness, grilled in a wooden pizza oven. Panuozzos use the same dough as pizzas, but you gotta try it out yourself to see where the differences shine.

At Pizza Belga, you can also find various types of mouth-watering pasta such as shiitake carbo — a carbonara-based pasta using Japanese shiitake mushroom, or Sicilian pesto.

This prestigious location, famous for its Czech beer, is no stranger to culinary enthusiasts from all generations. At Hoa Viên, guests can enjoy some smooth beer with a slight floral note lingering at the end. Their beer is widely favored for its moderate strength and a smooth aftertaste — no bitterness.

The food and drinking snacks menu at this brewery is abundant with familiar flavors for the Vietnamese crowd, sure to satisfy your tastebuds. Make sure not to miss out on the star of the menu: dry-aged beef.

Pre-COVID time, guests would often visit the restaurant to observe the dry-aging process and choose their preferred cut of meat for on-site coal grilling. However, you can totally still enjoy a sumptuous meal of Hoa Viên dry-aged beef and Czech beer at home amongst beloved friends and family, thanks to the restaurant’s delivery service.
