Checking Off the List: Dinner in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Thursday, June 4, 2015


When planning my eating adventures in Vietnam, I ALWAYS relied on the blogger community. Here are just some of the blogs I used while traveling through Vietnam:


With all this advice this is how I have eaten in Vietnam…

Man! am I] going to miss the food inΒ Hoi An!Β But it was time to continue my journey and head toΒ Ho Chi Minh! I flew (didn’t want to take a 12+ hour train ride) and the ride was pretty uneventful, until I went to pick up my checked bag. I grabbed my backpack and INSTANTLY SMELLED FISH.


I then saw the culprit. Someone’s styrofoam container of, I’m assuming, RAW FISH, started to leak and spilt ALL OVER MY BOOK BAG.

I smelled like fish bait. Kill me.

After trying to disinfect my book bag (it didn’t really work), I was HUNGRY!Β Still needing to check off some traditional Vietnamese dishes off my food “To Do” list, Β I headed toΒ 195 Co GiangΒ forΒ Bun Thit Nuong.Β The dish literally means, “noodles with grilled meat”, and that is totally what you get! Oh, and a ton of veggies too!

The dish reminded me a lot of Bun Bo Nam Bo, but more meat and less crunchy elements.



Tomorrow I squeeze in a quick tour of Ho Chi Minh before heading to Phnom Penh, Cambodia!
