Neighborhood restaurant – May Bon Phuong

How could I know about this restaurant?! It is hidden on a small street and it is probably found only by the people who live around.

For some reasons the restaurant was completely empty and it was just 8 o’clock; plastic chairs shouldn’t be the reason for that since all Vietnamese restaurants use them.

My wife ordered the food and first they came with a kind of mixture of vegetables with cattlefish. The salad has sugary-lemon taste, that’s the best I can describe it.

And, my favorite: meat cheese roll ups. I had 2 beers and my daughter drank a lemon juice. Total cost around $20.
