Here is the missing Vietnam trip before the ever short layover in Korea. My husband and I traveled to Vietnam for business, strictly business. We spent most of our days either at the office or at coffee shop. Our coffee office were more Western, meaning water down Vietnamese coffee and sufficient wifi. When we did have time for real Vietnamese coffee we would go to the nearest mom and pop shop- go to any of them and you’re guaranteed a great cup of iced Cafe Sua Da.[/one_half]
Vietnamese Coffee is like crack.
Comfort food all day, everyday
Lunch was served at the office, but I lived for dinner during our trip. We were taken to the most amazing seafood joints, street food, and mom/pop shops. I only wish I took photos before devouring it or even jotted down the name of the restaurant. But even if I did take notes, I find it rather difficult to navigate, especially when you’re searching for a particular restaurant. There are a million of them, all mom and pop shops, not a single franchise (except for your occasional McDonalds or KFC). That’s what makes Vietnam so great. It always feels like you’re eating a homemade meal. The food is incredibly light, colorful, and healthy. We ate tons of raw vegetables and was really main jam. The fruit juices in Vietnam is on another level, nuoc mia, nuoc ma, and whatever nuocs there are in Vietnam is bomb.
I can’t give you a whole lot of food recommendations, but I can point you to all the beautiful Western coffee shops, if that’s the kind of thing you’re looking for.
