Vibrant street-front bar & restaurant in SOHO – highlights from refreshed menu and cocktails


October 14th, 2015

Updated January 2018

After two successful years serving up the uniquely Vietnamese concept of  bia-hoi casual street-side drinking and eating to an appreciative Hong Kong clientele, bustling SOHO restaurant Chom Chom continues to evolve under the direction of the Blacksheep Restaurants team. Chôm Chôm overlooks a street corner in the heart of the vibrant SOHO nightlife area – simple plastic stools on the pavement frontage provide casual people watching and beer drinking experiences just like Vietnam’s ubiquitous bia-hoi outlets.

Chôm Chôm serves a menu of regional Vietnamese street food dishes, cooked in the open kitchen within the compact restaurant dining room. Menu selections are regularly updated with seasonal fresh ingredients and new dishes. Featured beverages include regional Vietnamese bottles beers and the popular Vietnamese craft beer Pasteur Street on tap; well-priced international wines, and signature cocktails inspired by Vietnamese culinary flavours and ingredients.

Open daily from 5 pm, Chôm Chôm operates a no reservations policy. Regular promotions include the Hanoi Happy Hour with special deals on VFC and pitchers of drinks – other events and menu updates can be found on the Facebook Page.
