Phan’s Garden of delights
Vietnamese people know their food. Last year at this time, I visited the nation for 16 days, traveling between Hanoi and Saigon. Hanoi was memorable for its street vendors, each with a different specialty, such as banh cuon cha lua, a dish of minced pork and rice flour crepes that looks easy to prepare but is actually quite difficult.
