Chinese cuisines are often said to be tasty and deli-cious, especially those owned by Chinese practitioners. Many Vietnamese businesspeople have managed to open Chinese restaurants in HCM City that are able to compete with numerous eateries that offer authentic Chinese food here, and Huy Long Vien is one of the cases.

Huy Nhat, an American

Vietnamese, and his wife, a Shanghai designer, opened a Chinese restaurant named Huy Long Vien in HCMC�s District 1 one month ago, aiming to serve many kinds of food from different regions in China to both

Vietnamese and Chinese diners.

�I see that there are more and more Chinese investors and businessmen coming to HCMC for business and living, and this is a good opportunity to open a

Chinese restaurant here, he says, adding: �I had lived a few years in China, so it is an advantage.�

Six years ago, Nhat, an MBA graduate from Pepperdine University in the U.S., came to China to work. There, he traveled big miles around the country as well as to Hong Kong and Taiwan, and

experienced many kinds of food. Last summer, he and a business mission from Hong Kong and Taiwan went to Vietnam to sound out investment opportunities. In first days, these people had Vietnamese dishes; however, for the following days, they wanted to experience their home food. So the business idea was conceived in Huy Nhat�s mind, and he decided to open a Chinese restaurant in Vietnam.

Huy Long Vien, as his restaurant is named, offers more than 300 Chinese dishes prepared by Chinese and Hong Kong chefs. Especially, Beijing Duck and Abalone soup with shredded meat are highlights in the Huy Long Vien Restaurant�s menu.

The restaurant�s staff are professionals. They include the restaurant manager Maggie Yeung, who had worked at the same position in a big restaurant in Hong Kong, and executive chef Wong Hai from Hong Kong, who has got many awards in cooking. Besides, seven Chinese and Hong Kong chefs in the restaurant are in charge of each different section.

Nhat said that after going around markets in HCM City, these chefs

realized that food in Vietnam is fresh and abundant, so Chinese dishes made in Vietnam can be more delicious than those in China.

As for the decoration, the 1,500 -square-meter restaurant is

designed completely in the Chinese style. Materials ranging from bowls, plates, and table cloths to lamps and calligraphic pictures were bought from China.

�We design the restaurant in a special way so that both Chinese and Vietnamese can feel that they are in a restaurant in China, not in Vietnam,� Nhat says. �So, it is an address for not only dining but also studying the Chinese culture.

The 32-year-old man, who is member of the Sino Alliance Group - a supporter of Huy Long Vien, is now very busy with works in both China and Vietnam. He has five Vietnamese restaurants in Shanghai and this Chinese restaurant Huy Long Vien in HCM City. He plans to open two more restaurants in Vietnam.
