Lil’ bun, mother deer and I were in New West Uptown for the festival. Even though there were food trucks left right and center, we decided to go to a sit down restaurant instead since we were tired from walking around all day long. After searching around for a while, we stumbled upon Saigon Ivy, […]
Finding a new and unique Vietnamese restaurant to try is always hard because everything tends to be the same everywhere you go. I mean you have your beef noodle soup, your salad roll, your grilled protein with broken rice dish…you know what I mean? So when I heard about Hai Phong, I jumped at the […]

Food from the Northern side of Vietnam tends to focus on using glutinous rice instead of regular rice as an ingredient and their […]
I haven’t gone out for Vietnamese food in a really long time and being that I’m trying to explore my food horizons more often, I decided that I would finally pay a visit to Mr. Red Cafe located on Hastings Unlike most Vietnamese restaurants found in this area (because there’s a plethora to choose from), […]
