Best Saigon Restaurants

I decided to start a category of restaurants I really like in Saigon.  My Vietnamese friends take me to many restaurants in the city that are never published in the travel books or magazines.  Many times I will be the only non-Vietnamese in these restaurants.

Be aware that I have a tendancy to forget the names of the restaurants I visit.  I also forget to take pictures of the cuisines we order.  I will try to break that habit.

The restaurant that I had lunch today classifies as one of my Best Saigon Restaurants.  Sorry, I forgot the name, I meant to get a business card.  It is located in alleyway near Nguyen Thi Minh Khai on Hai Ba Trung in District 1.  My friend ordered a traditional Vietnamese dish that was very delicious.  I think you will like the traditional Vietnamese house setting and I was surprised at how cool it was.  We did not need to turn the fan on.  I really enjoyed the food here and I will definitely return in the near future.

    Right now I just want to remember to take some pictures 🙂 After that I will get to the prices.

    I am trying to eat home more often now. I prefer to cook at the moment though it is mostly cha gio and rice 🙂
