The largest museum in Canada and the letter to Painter Boi Tran.
Boi Tran Garden is privileged to host a cultural exchange between Vietnam and Singapore. The dignitaries includes Mr Le Hoai Trung, Chairman of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Foreign Affairs; Mr Ng Teck Hean, Deputy Secretary (Asia-Pacific), Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Mr Nguyen Van Cao, Former Chairman of Thua Thien Hue Provincial People’s Committee and Painter Boi Tran
Formally requested by Vietnam First Lady Mai Thi Hanh, Boi Tran Garden was privileged to host a cultural exchange meeting combined with Hue royal refined music and Hue fine dining on the official first foreign visit to Vietnam of Laos First Lady Naly Sisoulith.
Owning an exquisite garden around 5000m2 nestled on Thien An Hill where art researchers, scholars, specialists, and experts in Vietnam and other countries oftentimes pass by, Heritage is privileged to meet this talented artist Boi Tran – “A true heroine” of the ancient Hue in her own mansion.
Boi Tran is a painter and something of a throwback, an anomaly, a creature from another, earlier time in the life of the onetime Imperial City. She also cooks, magnificently from a repertoire of Imperial Hue-era dishes numbering over 100. She spoils all of us with a succession of dishes. Small, flavorful, and beautifully presented. And that culinary tradition, which gave Hue its reputation as a food capital, continues today.
It seems a special shame to dig in without first having a look at dishes designed by this cultured city’s most renowned artist Boi Tran, one of the remarkable women who have used their homes to help revive their hometown’s food culture.
Many of the old culinary traditions live on, and today, Hue cuisine is held to be Vietnam’s most delicious and diverse. A visit to Ancient Hue, a home restaurant and gallery of an eccentric, elegant artist and chef Boi Tran, gives visitors an inkling of what a royal banquet and a meal crafted.

Boi Tran took the precious formality of Hue cuisine to a new place, where the pleasure of pure flavour, not mere visual dazzle, was primary.
