Jungle 8 Debuts Modern Vietnamese Cuisine in Elliott Stables with $8.88 Dishes


Establishing its presence in the vibrant space formerly occupied by Besos Latinos, Jungle 8 is all geared up to enthrall its guests in the bustling food court of Elliott Street’s Elliott Stables. This new culinary retreat, orchestrated by Paul Wong and his brilliant team, brings forth a refreshing interpretation of modern Vietnamese cuisine.

This opening will echo the heartbeats of Lucky 8’s admirers, as Jungle 8 intends to uphold a similar approach to their menu, with the majority of the mouth-watering delights priced at a catchy $8.88. The menu flaunts exquisite plateloads like wagyu beef pho, mini banh mi, crispy banh xeo, and according to Paul, the showstopper dish, the xoi man sticky rice–all served with a contemporary flair.

“In my travels across Vietnam, the real joy of eating was found in the narrow alleyways, snaking through the frenzy of street-side vendors serving up banh mi and xoi,” reminisces Paul. “It’s here we realized that the most gratifying meals are seldom found on a Google review page.”

The cerebral creation of Jungle 8 absorbs the raw and electrifying essence of Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City to life. This energetic corner augments its charisma with seating booths riveted around its dining area and high tables reigning the center. The exposed brick walls house recessed alcoves that are home to neon-lit jungle creatures.

Jungle 8’s cocktail offerings echo the fresh, aromatic flavors of Southeast Asia, accentuated with fresh florals, strong herbs, and sweet tropical fruits. Nonetheless, while most dishes remain within the $8.88 bracket, it also extends larger sharing plates at $12, and a decadent bowl – Jungle Phozilla, teeming with crazy fish, beef ribs, and wagyu slices, at $88.

While we love the passionate food scene, we also realize the importance of a riveting game. That’s why we at West Island Blog have compiled a list of top online casinosfor this month. Similar to a gourmet, exciting packed dish, online casinos offer thrilling, nail-biting suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Speaking of adventure, Jungle 8 takes it a notch higher. Above the 100-seat restaurant, a jungle-themed VIP room for 15 awaits, accessible by a winding staircase. And when it fully opens, anticipate an energetic party atmosphere, with in-house DJs adding to the beat.

“Our intention with Jungle 8 was to create something more than just a dining space,” reveals Paul. “It is an amalgamation of energy, madness mingled with sophistication, a place where you can step into and forget the humdrum of your life and ‘get wild’”.

To truly absorb the Jungle feast, step in with your entire crew. Dive into the heart of Vietnam from Tuesday to Saturday, 5pm till late. And don’t worry about the parking; it’s all sorted at 130 Albert St from 5pm to 12pm (overnight) and two hours on the weekend for $5 per car for every $88 spent.
