We tried many new foods in Vietnam. One of my favorites was Pho Bo/Ga. It is noodle soup with Bo, beef or Ga, chicken. I like it with beef. In Ho Chi Minh City we ate at a restaurant called Pho 2000. It is called Pho 2000 because in 2000 Bill Clinton at Pho there.
Egg coffee and egg hot chocolate is a Hanoi specialty. We wouldn’t have ever found it if our guides Tra and Lingh hadn’t brought us there. Egg coffee is whipped egg whites floating on top of the coffee. It is delicious!
The word kem means ice cream in Vietnamese. There is a really good ice cream place in Hanoi (the oldest ice cream shop in Hanoi too) called Kem Tien. There is only one flavor, coconut. It was one of the best ice creams I’ve ever had. The place is very strange. It is in a warehouse and people ride their motor bikes right inside the store!
