Eat and meet

The food scene in Ben Tre as far as sit-down restaurants are concerned is pretty threadbare. Hung Vuong hotel has a decent restaurant and the restaurant immediately beside the Hung Vuong that does quite good pork ribs. Down the road on Hung Vuong is Hu Tieu Xuong 160 that serves at least twenty delicious bowls of you guessed it, hu tieu. Unfortunately, they restaurant is open from 5:00 - 17:00 as the location would make an excellent spot for sundowners.

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.
