when we strolled along the banks of song thu bong & the streets last evening before on the way to morning glory for a great dinner, we saw several street stalls selling thit nuong – the vietnamese satay where local people gathered.

the food looked exciting & enticing!

today, after the best pho bo @ pho lien & the best banh mi in the world @ banh mi phuong, we entered the ancient city & walked along the streets on the banks of song thu bon.

we were attracted to the thit nuong satay stall.

we asked if there was a table & the teenage helper pointed to an empty space. before we could do a doubletake, he brought like 7 low stools. 2 doubled as table support for the tray, the other 5 for us to sit on. life is simple & solutions to life’s problems also simple! 🙂

the teenage helper (stallholder’s son) speaks good english. he showed us how to wrap the satay meat. there’s actually a twine loop hook at the end of the twin skewers. removed that, pulled out the meat, wrapped in the thin rice paper & put it the veg & herbs!

the satay was good, nice aroma & tasty with the rice paper, aromatics & sauce.

taste was great just as the experience was fun.

hoi an is a nostalgic ancient city. the former port city is a mishmash of different eras & architectural styles from wooden chinese buildings & temples to french colonial buildings to japanese covered bridge & pagoda.

it has the the riverside on both sides of song thu bon are fun to walk along, & shops & eats dotted the streets.

wife is already talking about going back! ^^
