I think it’s safe to say that when you are in a foreign country you should eat as the locals do. It’s what all the cool guys (ie. Anthony Bourdain, Andrew Zimmern) tell you to do. But sometimes you have to suck up your pride, shell out a couple hundred thousand dong, and eat at a restaurant that is meant for tourists. As great as it is to eat on the streets I would say that most people, definitely me included, need a break from that every once in a while.
Here are some of the meals I’ve splurged on.
When you are living in a place like HCMC you need to find ways to escape from the chaos of it all. For me, going out for a nice dinner or spending the afternoon in a quiet cafe is the perfect way. There will definitely be more fine dining posts to come!
