Living & Eating in Saigon

I have spent my past 6 post-retirement years living and eating in Vietnam. The past 4 here in Saigon. My partner, Hai, has lived his entire life (and eaten) here in Saigon. He cooks every day in his small neighborhood family restaurant here in Saigon.

We spend much of our time on our motorbike searching the streets and small alleys of Saigon looking for great street food and hidden restaurants here in the city.

We know and love great Vietnamese food! And we love to blog and share our eating adventures with others.

What a great post-retirement job I have!
