Get my food new –
Hey everyone, it’s Mark Wiens here, hope you’re having a wonderful day. In this travel food video, I was in Saigon, Vietnam. We decided to try taking the local bus, and from our hotel, we walked about 10 minutes to the bus stop on Minh Khai road. The bus came in just a few minutes and we took it just down the road until we got off right outside the Saigon Zoo.
Before entering the Saigon Zoo though, we were hungry so we decided to first go eat at a restaurant nearby called Phở Phượng 25, which is actually located right down the road from the legendary Lunch Lady of Saigon. I ordered a bowl of phở tái, which is Vietnamese pho noodles with rare cooked beef. It was very good, the beef especially was amazing, and I thought the soup was nicely balanced, but maybe a bit on the sweet side for me – but it did hit the spot.
After eating pho, we walked back to the Saigon Zoo, which shares the compound with the Saigon Botanic Gardens. The zoo wasn’t the best, the animals didn’t look to happy, but I did really enjoy walking around the gardens, which were lush and green and offered a nice escape from the chaos and loudness and fast pace of Saigon. After walking around for a while we then headed to the Museum of Vietnamese History, which is located right at the entrance of the zoo. The museum was pretty nice, definitely worth a visit – what I liked especially was the displays of artwork and carvings from Angkor Wat.
After the museum we then walked to the Emperor Jade Pagoda, one of the most well known Taoist temples in Saigon. The temple was old and dark, and it truly had an ancient, almost eerie feel to it. It was definitely worth visiting, and it’s a temple you should check out when you’re in Saigon.
After the temple, we then headed to Le Van Tam Park to eat Vietnamese green papaya salad that many of you recommended I should eat when I was in Saigon. The green papaya salad in the park was delicious, sweet and sour and fresh tasting.
To end the day, we headed back home on the bus, and then stopped by a lady I like to call the Meat Lady – a lady who sells all things Chinese meat. We got some pork belly, and some char siu, which was incredible. She also hooked us up with some baguettes as well.
It was another amazing day in Saigon – so many friendly people and delicious food.
