Well I’m here in Nha trang and whilst it’s still warm, there is no sun, lots of cloud and showers. So not the two days on the beach I hoped for. Fortunately yesterday I met a Chinese traveller, Cheng Fei, and we visited a few sights together, but the most interesting part was the street food.
We sampled quite a lot, including the Banh Mi sandwich. The French influence is still here, in the form of a baguette filled with pate and various meats, veg and sauces. They are delicious.
Later on we tried a shrimp pancake in one of the street “restaurants”, see the pic! Another dish was Pho Bo, a noodle soup with fresh beef, that you add veg too such as mint, coriander and basil. yum!!
These small restaurants usually cook only one meal, so you can walk around, take your pic, usually depending on how many locals are eating there! Sit on the wee stools and get stuck in, unfortunately if your a westerner they charge you a bit more!, but we’re talking 20,000 dong, about 70p!
Cheng Fei and I Having a few beers next to the see, the weather may not be great but sitting by a blustery see is quite something. Im glad I met this guy he was good company, otherwise it would of just been me and the Russians!
