Saigoneer Podcast: Historical What-Ifs and a Street Food Update

We've hit episode 60!

On this week's show, we discuss (1:00) a few Vietnam-focused what-ifs. For example, what if the country had never decided to use chopsticks as a dining utensil? Or what if the French had never colonized Vietnam?

Then (18:21), we do our first street food update in a while, which includes bamboo rice (171 Phan Dang Luu, Phu Nhuan District in the morning), a glorious vegetarian buffet (73 Huynh Man Dat, Binh Thanh District) and a couple of top-notch bún riêu spots (outside 95 Pasteur Street, District 1 and across from 14 Quoc Huong, District 2 at lunchtime).

As always, we end with Bánh Mì Banter (28:35).
