Number 34: Flaming street grill in Saigon
A part of the experience in Saigon is eating out. That’s to say: eating out on the streets, on plastic stools, with plastic utensils, surrounded by residents all happily scarfing down their meal. Check out the grilled meat, check out the grilled seafood of all shapes and sizes: point, choose, sit, wait, sip on a beer or a fruit smoothie, and nom when the food arrives. It might be hot and sultry as hell outside, and you might be this close to wilting and melting. But trust me, trust us: the food will be very good.
