Trying out the local cuisine is definitely one of the goals I had for this journey and Vietnam in particular high on the list of my can’t wait for.
One of the benefits of hanging out with the locals is that they know the best places for good food and a good atmosphere.
So pulling up my plastic kiddies chair at my plastic kiddies table and settling in for some delicious grub I was not disappointed once. Sometimes the food was really peculiar to look at but the smells and tastes…..yummy!
Now, what westerners may call cake is not necessarily what Vietnamese call cake, tasting their cakes was totally different and nothing like cake I had ever tasted in my life.
So whether it was fish, the fish skin (like above) or fish soup or just plain everyday pigs tripe I tried it all.
