Hong Hanh

Breakfast stopover

What we say: 4 stars

If you're interested in eating breakfast like the Saigonese but pho in the morning sounds too far out of your comfort zone, hunt down Hong Hanh.

This is where you can try banh cuon, a thin, steamed pancake rolled around a filling usually consisting of a mixture of diced pork and mushrooms.

Like most street stalls, they are light on decoration and you are seated on a plastic stool in an open-air dining area, but what it lacks visually is washed away by the quality of the banh cuon.

They also make a variety of fresh fruit juices and have street prices that can't be beat.
