I once tried to eat at a different cafe or restaurant everyday for a month. This was inspired by Timothy Ferriss’ 30 day challenge. I made it about 28 of those 30 days, but often settled for something quick and easy, or something just next door to a place I’ve already been. I bent the rules a little, but it was a very rewarding experience as I got to see more of the city.
I wanted to give this another try. This time really broadening my taste buds and thirst for something new. This might sound easy when travelling, but when you live somewhere it’s even easier to stay in your comfort zone.
For this challenge I’m going to focus on visiting a different place, somewhere I’ve never been before, for 30 days. I have lived in Saigon for 2 years now, so I’ve been to most of the popular places. I probably will continue to eat at these places, but if I do, I won’t count that as a new place. I’ll have to go somewhere else that day. I’m already writing this blog 3 days into when I started this challenge, so let me begin.
In pursuit of great street food (an vat) I came across a write up in AsiaLife Magazine. I was looking for Com binh dan (local rice). When I arrived at the location I realized I already ate there 3 days earlier(I’ll include this post at a later time). I drove a bit further and found some local Vietnamese really enjoying their meal on the side of the busy intersection of Ton That Tong and Bui thi Xuan in District 1. I pulled over and had not one, but two bowls of Bun Bo (beef noodle soup).
