La Siesta Ma May is the perfect antidote to the cacophony of the Old Quarter. Walking off Ma May Street into the calm interior of La Siesta Classic Ma May, make your way to Red Bean and its welcoming mini ‘Cheers’ style Red Bean bar on the ground floor.
Red Bean Ma May, launched in 2014, was EHG’ first Red Bean restaurant and first foray into the mature restaurant scene and it soon became evident that it would be the first of many Red Beans to come.
Red Bean Ma May is an oasis of cozy calm, its atmosphere made even more soothing by the color scheme of creams and browns bathed in warm lighting. The space has been designed with both classical and traditional Southeast Asian features, including a wall decked out in rich colored tapestries calling to mind the fabrics of the ethnic minorities.
About Red Bean
Red Bean or “đậu đỏ” in Vietnamese is a very important ingredient in Vietnamese cuisine (as well as other Asian nations) because of its versatility, accessibility, and taste. Aside from having a high nutritional value, the red bean also embodies a deep and powerful meaning within Asian societies. It is believed that the red bean is the sign of love and fidelity, and it is
often used symbolically in poems about love and romance.
Aside from this symbolic meaning, the red bean also represents the owners’ youngest son, Ðỗ Trần Minh Quân. His mother and father nicknamed him đậu đỏ due to his appearance when born. This name stuck and is now used as the brand name for the Elegance Hospitality Group restaurant chain.
