Vietnamese Afternoon Tea, with Veuve Clicquot, at the Caravelle Hotel, Saigon - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - January 2016
I decided to have afternoon tea in Ho Chi Minh City. I wanted to do this at Graham Greene’s Continental Hotel but their afternoon tea gets very poor reviews. Instead I learnt the Caravelle hotel does a Vietnamese option with Veuve Clicquot, something I could not miss, as I love that hotel and its staff.
Si Frew has lived in the UK, Bermuda, Qatar, Cyprus & the Cayman Islands. During this time he met Whoopi Goldberg (in Claridge's), Mike Tyson (in the Concorde Lounge at JFK) , Gordon Ramsay (in the Doha Four Seasons), Chris Eubanks (in The Dorchester), Cherie Blair (in Bermuda & again in the Doha Four Seasons) etc. There are funny stories attached to all these interactions, feel free to ask Si about them when you meet him.
