My Tho

My Tho is not exactly famed for food. Aside from the overpriced riverfront restaurant, there's a few places worth checking out. My Tho is known for its Hu Tieu a noodle and broth-like concoction that comes in both carnivore and vegetarian versions. It's cheap and available all over town -- making for a yummy breakfast.

Banh Xao 46 is a spring roll place with an English menu and cheery, non-English speaking staff, this is a good place to practice your point-and-smile technique, or to sample the fermented sausage fresh spring rolls, which are delicious. They also do excellent excellent Banh Xao (hence the restaurant name) -- highly recommended.

Hu Tieu 44 is one of the most convenient places to sample the previously mentioned My Tho speciality. There's a bunch of Hu Tieu places on Nam Ky Khoi Nghia, so if Hu Tieu 44 doesn't satisfy you, try another one.

After your breakfast Hu Tieu head to the corner of Yersin and 30 Thang 4 for your breakfast caffeine hit. This popular open-air cafe area seemingly attracts just about every coffee-drinking male in the province. Another good spot for coffee is the riverside park where there is a small cafe under the shade of the trees that does both coffee and cold beer.

My Tho has quite a good night market right beside the Chuong Duong Hotel on the riverfront. While precious little Engligh (well none) is spoken, a few of the stalls do have English menus and there is a good range of dishes available.
