Let’s try it I’m gonna have a big bite of this This is so good. It’s delicious! Let me go for a quail egg. Love quail eggs All the sauce softens up the rice paper but the sauce is really spicy tastes really healthy Alright guys, we’re just in a coffee shop It’s called Trung Nguyen Legend Apparently it’s number 1 coffee in Ho Chi Minh City So the coffee drips all the way to the bottom Stir it up with the condensed milk Pour it over your ice Ohhhhhhh mate! It’s pretty good You look scary Why you wearing a mask? cos I think it’s the pollution and the hot humidity that’s causing my breakouts So many scooters and cars on the road I should be wearing one too so I dont breathe in all that Smoke We grabbed dinner at a place called Banh Xeo 46A in District 1, Ho Chi Mich City It’s a well known restaurant in Saigon to try Banh Xeo which is a Crispy Vietnamese Pancake normally filled with prawns pork, and beansprouts Here’s the Banh Xeo Golden, super crispy, heaps of filling but a bit on the oily side We normally eat it with greens wrapped in ricepaper then dipped in sauce such as nuoc mam I love it how the ricepaper is thin enough to eat without having to first soak in water like we do back in Australia We also got some BBQ Lemongrass Pork which was pretty tasty and some fresh summer rolls The banh xeo here weren’t the best we’ve had in Vietnam but it’s definitely a place we’d recommend to try whilst in Ho Chi Minh City Alright guys, that’s it from us Hope you enjoyed the video If you did, please give it a thumbs up Leave a comment We love reading them and try our best to respond Share it with your friends and finally Please SUBSCRIBE to our channel if you aren’t already and come along on our travel and food adventures As always, thanks for watching and we’ll catch you on the next video
