/The sidewalk cuisine of VIETNAM/
We love Sai Gon because of many normal yet extraordinary things. The characteristic smell of Sai Gon did not come from fancy restaurants or well decorated coffee shop but from street vendors and carts filled with food and drinks.
There are many simple things in life that we rarely notice. And one of them are the street vendors and carts we see, meet and talk to every day, but never care where they came from, their origin.
The modern city of Sai Gon, filled with buildings, pubs and restaurants. And because of them, the image of small street vendors that bring a unique taste of food in them that no high class restaurant can has, are slowly lessen day by day.
The city, where life is hard and people have a lot to think of ,works continuously to earn a living and more. Because of this many people seem to forget that even a small act of kindness can help warm the heart of those who have to make a living far away from home.
Maybe the image of small street vendors and carts are no longer suit the modern image of Sai Gon, but one thing is for sure, they will never disappeared. For epicures who have passion for Sai Gon’s street food will always seek and choose vendors with special food and unique flavors than a restaurant with common and ordinary food.

It’s small things like this, is what make many people slowly get addicted to Sai Gon, and when you get into it, it’s hard to let go or forget.
Thank for watching !
