Eat and meet

Ben Tre

The food scene in Ben Tre as far as sit-down restaurants are concerned is pretty threadbare. Both the Dong Khoi and Hung Vuong restaurants have restaurants and there is a quite good Vietnamese restaurant/coffee shop on 3 Thang 2 Street (from the Dong Khoi walk around the left side of the lake and turn right one block down, the restaurant is on your left. There is a restaurant immediately beside the Hung Vuong that does quite good pork ribs.

Aside from that a few stalls serve up coffee and other cold drinks on the northern rim of Truc Giang Lake and there's a couple of dimly lit, lazy chair affairs within easy walking distance.

The market has a few basic noodle joints open from the early hours onwards, but come the evening they mostly vacate the premises. The riverfront, which is screaming out for a few cold-drink shacks was totally devoid of eating options when we passed through.
