Vietnam Delight halal restaurant

Vietnam Delights – new halal restaurant in Saigon

Several months ago, a new halal restaurant opened in Saigon called Vietnam Delights.  Vietnam Delights serves both halal Vietnamese and Cham cuisines.  It is already one of my favorite halal restaurants in the city.  Prices are good.  I love the nasi goreng, as usual.  My other favorites are the curry dishes and, of course, the halal spring rolls.

Edit: A group of us went to Vietnam Delights for dinner over a week ago and were appalled by the poor service we got.  Read John’s commernce here -> http://getoffthetrail.com/2012/06/06/ga-ca-ri-curry-chicken-173-of-365/

Pinky Ice Cream in District 1 (Saigon)

Pinky Ice Cream

After being harassed by Evelyn for sending her to a construction site and not Pinky’s a couple months, I finally found one near where I live in District 1.  Pinky’s is one place where you can get a good ice cream sandwich.  I think they are better here then at Bud’s Ice Cream.  Several Pinky’s have shut down in the last year but new ones have replaced them.  They are more “mom and daughter” shops anymore.  Prices are good but you will need to scream for service.

Sorry, forgot to get the address to this one. (more…)

Vietnamese meal at Cuc Gach Cafe - Saigon, Vietnam

Cuc Gach Cafe

I visited Cuc Gach Cafe, a popular Vietnamese restaurant, last Sunday with my friend.  It serves traditional Vietnamese food.  The catch, it serves a different menu each day.  Customers just arrive, sit down, and then the waiter will bring some food shortly after.  I really enjoyed what they brought to us Sunday evening.  (more…)
