This makes me want to go to Vietnam just to eat. :)

What a great post. Thank you!

Drooling! Grilled pork made my life complete in Saigon. There's a very good bun thit nuong spot on the "northeast" corner(ish) of Cach Mang Thanh Tam and Nguyen Thi Minh Khai.

For com suon nuong, there's a mini-chain called Kieu Giang that was once pretty impressive—anyone know if they've kept up quality?

I love that dish. Andrea Nguyen's recipe is so good. I couldn't believe I made it at home -- broiled in the oven, no less. http://seattletallpoppy.blogspot.com/2011/01/feasting-at-bing-national-tailgate.html

Thank you for helping me remember my fond memories when I was in Vietnam! It is definitely a must try especially the stall at Ben Than Market!

Hi Alice -- thank you! That is nice to hear. We've been traveling in the USA/Mexico the last 5 wks and betw family/work it's hard to keep up with the posts. Just got back to Penang. We'll have a post up by the end of the week I hope.
Even when we're traveling we are always -- well, sometimes often and sometime occasionally -- posting updates/photos on our FB page.
Thanks for asking after us.
