[Ho Chi Minh City] Trung Nguyen Coffee – The Saigon Starbucks

I’m a caffeine addict (as opposed to the caffeine intolerant P) and getting a cup of starbucks on my way to work was a daily routine in Singapore (I guess having a branch in our workplace lobby helps). I’m having withdrawal symptoms in Saigon as there is no Starbucks here!

Momofuku Ando is the inventor of instant noodles and the founder of Nissin Food Product Co. Look at the thoughtful packaging – the cup noodle was bubble wrapped to prevent damage in your luggage. The cuteRead More
