Saigon Inside Out, the new magazine on the streets of this fair city, has a decent wee round up of the mammoth Saigon Korean scoffscene. I swear some Saigon streets have more Korean and Japanese restaurants than their equivalents in Seoul or Shinjuku. Lorra, lorra expats here from that neck of the woods. That steaming hot hangover friendly temptress above is Kongnamul-gukbap, a firey beansprout and rice soup. It’s one of the few examples I’ve managed to snag in Saigon. It’ll do the job, but it’s not a gnat’s pimple on the original from Chonju (Jeonju) For that, you’ll need several bottles of Soju, a back alley shack downtown and tables full of hungover and half pissed Koreans. Marvellous stuff. Marvellous place. Will blog it if I ever get back there. You’ll find the bowl above served at Chonju Shik Tang at 35 Ly Tu Trong Street, District 1, Saigon. Cost about 70,000VD.
