Saigon in 3 hours!
|Ốc xào ớt sa tế – Escargots in satay chili|
Challenge accepted! I had only 3 hours to spend in Ho Chi Minh City and was set to explore the best street food of this vibrant city (no this was not my first time visiting HCMC). Like it’s not difficult enough, many shops were closed as it was still the 6th day of Tet. Although it took a considerable amount of my tight time budget to travel to my usual favourite eateries which were all closed, the circumstance led me to new amazing places.
- One small note about southern cuisine: food in the south is generally sweet, as opposed to mild north and spicy central. Just like any other commercial capitals, there is a collection of dishes from many other places, making HCMC cuisine very diverse and interesting. Besides, cost is relatively higher than the rest of the country.
