Chomchom: Vietnamese counter at Le Central

Lucky Belly does it again

Like a runaway train, the Lucky Belly group is unstoppable. The team behind Red Tiger, Blossom, Tiramisu, Ho Lee Chix, Kamé and finally the coveted Carla Terrasse is back with another project. It’s right at the entrance to Le Central where the restaurateurs have decided to open their brand-new restaurant—Chomchom.

A fast and customized downtown offer

Located in the heart of the city and right in the middle of the Quartier des Spectacles, Chomchom offers fast and tasty cuisine. This makes it a great option for festival-goers, party-goers and those who work in the area.

Your experience at Chomchom will start with a tough choice between the proteins on the menu: Saigon chicken, tofu, Bo Luc Lac beef, caramelized shrimp or Tôm Rim style ribs. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have to decide whether you want it served as a sandwich (Bánh mì) or in a bowl with vermicelli.

It is also possible to accompany your main meal with rolls and/or coleslaw.

Flavours of the moment

To quench your thirst, Chomchom always has a soda and a slushie, with flavours that vary. Plus, you can add alcohol to the drinks to make it a little livelier. On our visit, we were treated to a Piña Colada slushie; made with coconut milk, it took us on a journey with every sip.

Collaboration with Club Local

To keep with the spirit and concept of eating on the go, Chomchom has partnered with Club Local. The company specializing in ready-to-drink cocktails has distinguished itself in recent years with its Spritz Les Îles and its Mojito Sainte-Marie.

Once again, the Lucky Belly group is hitting it out of the park with an offer that is perfectly suited to its environment.

N.B.: they also make an excellent Vietnamese cà phê!

Bon appétit

Michele Chiarlo : A story of family and great wines

In the prestigious region of Piemonte, famous for its illustrious Barolo and Barbaresco, the wines have this unequivocal smell of an ancient dusty book. Some story they must tell! But for Alberto Chiarlo, of Michele Chiarlo wines, it takes more than a sniff of the bouquet to “get a real sense of place”.
