Lunch at Benh Thanh Market

Yes! Finally I had a chance to try having lunch at Benh Thanh Market, Ho Chi Minh City. There is 1 area in the market that is full with food stall. Many of them can speak English, simple one, but still it’s nice to be able to communicate.

There were many options to choose and I didn’t know which one of them has a good food. So the only option were looked for a busy food stall or something you like. My friend saw a noodle stall and wanted to try it out. I saw the menu (with no price on it) and saw something I might like.

Chicken Fried Noodle

Chicken fried noodle. This simple dish is pretty good. It has a bit of sweetness. I would prefer a bit saltiness though xD It wasn’t a fried noodle actually, just dried noodle. It came with soup. The seller said it was soup for after meal, but I ate it during meal. Pour a little bit to my noodle as well to make it loosen.

For the drink, there was another guy asking us what drink we want. I ordered chanh muoi, or salted lemon juice. Always love the taste!

In total, we spent 145k vnd, for 2 noodles and 2 drinks. The noodle was 50k vnd each. Quite expensive eh? But it was a nice experience for us šŸ˜‰ Maybe next time we will try another dish. Who knows.
