After a morning constitutional down at Saigon zoo I clocked this frying pan on the pavement at 25 Nguyen Binh Khiem street. Certainly looks appetising enough, but what the hell is it?
Turns out for 1,000VD you can walk away with a bag of deep-fried mashed sweet potato bites – Khoai My. Doused in chili and pepper, they’re a spicy street-snack must try, but they’re not the full morning munch-monty. You’ll be needing your dessert for that.
