First Review by SusanRoberts

my local lunch spot - Edit

Very traditional Vietnamese-style eatery, where you get a plate of steamed white rice and a choice of items from the buffet to top your rice, 3 items 25k, 4 items 30k.

The tofu meatballs, braised jackfruit and Vietnamese-style kimchi are my favorites.

There's a daily soup option (25k each) written in Vietnamese, so here's the translation (all use fake meat):

Monday - bun Hue (vermicelli with beef in style of Hue)
Tuesday - pho (rice noodles with beef)
Wednesday - bun mang (vermicelli with bamboo shoots)
Thursday - bo kho (beef stew with vermicelli)
Friday - bun mam (fish stew with vermicelli)
Saturday - bun reiu (crab and tomato with vermicelli)
Sunday - bun Thai (vermicelli with Thai spices)

The following noodles can be ordered daily:
hu tieu (rice noodle soup, a traditional dish of the south)
banh canh (thick noodles in a fish soup)
bun thit nuong - dry vermicelli with grilled pork
bun ch gio - dry vermicelli with fried spring rolls

While this shop is conveniently located on my route to work, it's the taste, cheap prices, and friendly staff that make it a reoccurring stop.

Choice - Edit

Interesting local eatery with bags of choice.
Staff don't shall English and menu is in Vietnamese. But tofu selection it buffet anyway so just point. You need to ask for noodles.
I'm pretty sure everything is vegan.

Pros: Very cheap, Lots to choose, Good size meal

Cons: Basic, Low tables (look I'm 6'3"), Cash only

Amazing food! - Edit

I highly recommend this little gem. I used Happy Cow to find it and was so glad I went. I had a tofu steak and a bowl of noodles for less than 2US dollars. The portions were big and the service was excellent. I tried to tip but they wouldn't accept it. Will definitely go back!

Pros: Food portion , Great service , Buddhist

YUUUUUUUMMMMMMM!!!!! - Edit

Oh my goodness - soooooooo yummy! This is a fantastic vegan place with a maHUsive range of dishes: loads of different mock meat, tofu, and vegetable dishes, all AMAZING. They also do noodles soups and the main rice dishes come with a small complimentary soup, too (which is sooooo tasty). A fantastic place with lovely people working there and extremely good value for money. This was a total highlight - and there are many in this paradise that is Vietnam.

Pros: Amazing choices, Delicious food, Cheap

Cons: That I can't eat all my meals here every day

This little jewel blew my mind. One of my favorite foods are the noodle soups which change on a daily basis. They are flavorful and delicious and all this for a price you wouldn't believe. A bowl of soup costs 22,000 VND. If you are not familiar with the Vietnamese Dong it would cost you one US dollar.

Very Tasty vegan food in Ho Chi Minh city!! - Edit

Delicious daily soups, nice variety of tofu and veg dishes. Clean place with very friendly staff. Go early for best selection, but we went late on one day and still got amazing soup. 3 people stuffed for around $5. Coming back early tomorrow for pumpkin and coconut cream :-)
