BEST Pho! TRADITIONAL Noodle Tour of Saigon Vietnam

  • Published on Dec 31, 2017
  • I've been wanting to travel to Vietnam for years! My first day in Saigon( Ho Chi Minh City) I had to go for a bowl of Pho! The BEST I've ever had! I then went to explore the traditional Vietnamese noodle soup scene of Saigon where I tried Crab Noodles, Bún Bò Huế and bunch of other traditional noodles.
    Lcoation 1: Pho Quynh - Best pho for me, but I didn't know a better one was yet to come.
    Location 2: Banh Canh Cua - Just the GREATEST, MUST TRY!
    Location 3: Bun Thit Nuong - got nothing to compare with but very solid and LOVED the pork
    Location 4: Bún Bò Huế Nhung yes a thousand times yes!
    Location: Quán ăn - Huế tại 19 Trần Quốc Toản, P. 8, Quận 3, Hồ Chí Minh
    Location 5: Sadec Quan - Super refreshing noodles, must try if you love coconut and refreshingness
    Location 6: Pho Phu Vuong - OMG you gotta eat this!

    I mean you can do whatever you want, but when people throw in hot sauce or hoisin w/o tasting the broth first, it’s like ordering a $50 steak a covering it with ketchup imho.

    I love Vietnamese food; am viet born American btw :)
    But I’m just going to go confront it; eating dog meat in Vietnam is very rare, especially in the south. Many people, if asked if they eat it, will laugh and shrug it off in a manner than shows they feel a bit uncomfortable about the topic, but that the topic is prevalent enough that it’s not a huge thing. As great as Vietnam is, there are often dogs chained up outside like the one in the video, and it always makes me so sad, and ill just cry when I spot it. It makes me so sad; they don’t view it as animal abuse though; they actually love their dogs very much, but...
    I remember there was a Vietnamese police officer who had a puppy. It was black with a brown tummy, muzzle, and eyebrows; looked very cute! I think it was a Pomeranian. He would often buy meat/chicken/vegetables/ etc for the dog to eat after ripping it up tiny, and when he had ice cream from the nearby store, the dog always got a lick. He was always outside of my uncle’s motorbike dealership with his dog sleeping on the chair he’d bring with him; if not, on his lap or under the chair. Hope he’s still doing well! I actually saw him again the last time I went, but we drove past him..! :’(

    Sterotpyes here, Stereotypes there.
    We don’t eat dogs, the dog was tied up to prevent from being hurt
    from all the traffic over there. Do people still believe asian countries
    eat dog? Apparently yes! Its uncommon nowadays. We truly love
    dogs. Seriously though, eat dogs are fairly rare.

    Stereotypes, Stereotypes, Stereotypes.

    Around 9:30 - can we just admit that Asian people(Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Japanese) ARE JUST BETTER THEN THE REST OF US ST developing food SO DELICIOUS... that any other race or culture could enjoy eating, for example, a bowl of Phó morning, noon and night... be stoked about it, have it be healthy... and have SO MANY F**KING DELISCIOUS....theyre just better then as at food. The Nuance is insane...

    Actually Mike if you go to any pho restaurant in America they do have Banh canh cua there. If you didn't see it on the menu, you can ask them. Where I live when I go to pho restaurant I do get banh canh cua sometime.
