Last Food Adventure in HCMC, for now…

it’s our last night in Ho chi minh city before heading to the northern jungle for 2 weeks, and what do we do? eat, of course!

so we went to a place known for their banh xeo, but also surrounded by like 3 other wannabes. this one is banh xeo 46A, but the others were named along similar lines of banh xeo 48B or something. here’s what we had: nice and crispy banh xeo with fresh veggies, soda chanh, bi coun, goi coun.
crispiest banh xeo ever! bi coun + goi coun this is the "kitchen" Banh Xeo 46A

then after we left EXTREMELY full, we had the bright idea of eating famous crab meat egg rolls somewhere a few blocks away. there’s two of them with the same name next to each other, but again, don’t go to the wannabe. ahhh… the life of wannabe foodies… it’s hard. i know. ^_^* so, the eggrolls were delicious – unlike a lot of places i’ve tried in the US that were chewy after frying with this particular skin, the egg roll skin is nice and crispy and filling very yummy and visible with crab meat.

sadly, this will probably be the last foodie excursion until i get back to the states. i’ll be cut off from the internet with only use of my cell phone. maybe, that will help me with my internet addiction problem. for the next two weeks, we’ll be in what i call the “jungle” in northern vietnam. no internet, and probably worse tasting food. what is my stomach going to do? until the next exciting foodie excursion! *wave*
