It seems like everywhere I go in Vietnam, the food is just amazing and really really healthy. All dishes comes with a lot of greens.
This was fish noodles soup. The soup was just really tasty and you won’t see any oil in it. Unlike some of the place you eat in Malaysia.
And what’s great… It only cost like 35k VND.. Which is about $1.5 for a whole meal. That includes a bowl of yummy noodle fish soup and a side dish of vegetables and Vietnamese tea.
Great food is almost everywhere including the shopping malls.
This famous dish called Bun Cha.. Its sticky noodles with BBQ Pork and sauce.. Also with loads of vegetables cost me about $3.5 and that was for dinner.
Apparently you can get fresh vegetables at the markets everyday and there is street smack in the middle of the city just selling it. So that’s why every other dish you get in Vietnam is just filled with greens.
For me, after a few days in Vietnam, you’ll get so used to it that once you go back to Malaysia, you feel like something in your meal is missing. As the vegetables you get don’t seem as fresh as what you get there.
So if you want to eat healthy and cant seem to do it consistently enough.. Move to Vietnam 😂😂😂
The Mamak is a typical Malaysian restaurant where you can get extremely yummy food for the cheapest price. But there are a few tips which I learned over the years to get real value for money.
Unlike Starbucks, where you get 3 different types of sizes and have to pay a lot more, the Mamak offers either standard cup size or the super jumbo size. I found out that there is another size if you really want to get a good deal. You call it the take away but have it in a bowl. Example… Teh O Ais. Or ice tea…just order Teh Ais Bungkus Mangkuk Ikat Tepi.
And you’ll end up like the picture above. Total price is about rm1.70 or rm2. Compared to the standard cup… You only get half the size and a difference of 40 cents at max.
When ordering roti ! Ask for Roti Telur or whatever roti.. But to get it fresh and crispy… Ask them for “garing” . You will then get a nice crispy roti telur.
I normally like freshly made and freshly cook so I always ask them to make it with onions as by asking that, they have to make a new one because its not the standard onces they make in bulk.
So year just my lil tips of going to the Mamak… What about you ? Any interesting value for Money food tips to share.?
