Legend Hotel Saigon

Spanish cocktails at Atrium Café's dinner & brunch

In September, Legend Hotel Saigon will add something special to Atrium Café's renowned dinner and brunch buffets. Popular Spanish cocktails, Calimocho and Rebujito, are making the buffet even more spectacular than ever.

The two cocktails are light-tasting and easy to drink for those who do not like a strong alcohol flavor.  If you do enjoy the red wine you will certainly find Calimocho, a mixture of red wine and Coke, fantastic to drink, especially with meat. For white wine lovers, Rebujito, a mixture of white wine and 7Up, gives a mild and refreshing taste, which is preferable for fish and seafood. Both are served with ice and garnished with a lime wedge.

* Saturday & Sunday brunch buffet (11 a.m. 2:30 p.m.) is priced at VND630,000++ per person. Included are free flows of wines, beer, cocktails, fresh fruit juices, soft drinks, coffee and tea. Guests can enjoy free use of the swimming pool between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
