Like I mentioned before, I grew up eating Vietnamese food. But it's soooooo different when you actually eat it here in Vietnam. Different in a good way, of course. It's better straight from the source :)
I can't really pinpoint what exactly has been my favorite dish while here, but I will say my first night in Ho Chi Minh City, my mom took me to this amazing "buffet" style place that served traditional Vietnamese dishes made right in front of you.
And Vietnamese coffee… I'm so hooked.
I'm enjoying the food here. I'm not going to lie though, first thing I'm doing when I get back to San Francisco is getting a bacon cheese burger from Pearls.
