Noodlepie: a streetfood blog from (Big) Saigon

I came across this attractive blog about streetfood in Saigon, more correctly known now as Ho Chi Minh city. It will serve as a useful touchstone in the cutting edge investigative journalism this blog will engage in in answering the question: is Victoria St’s food Chinese or Vietnamese? Meanwhile, just enjoy it. For balance, have a look at Sticky Rice, a food blog about Hanoi food. Friends from Hanoi study in Melbourne and their cooking is to die for and not much like Victoria Street’s at all. The photo is from noodlepie’s flickr pages and depicts my favourite foods: pork rolls bursting with another favourite food, coriander. More about pork rolls, much more, in due course.
