For our dinner, we decided to take a walk to Pasteur Restaurant while waiting for the AO show to start. As we walked towards the restaurant, I can see that a lot of people were dining here already. I kind of expected that we need to wait to be seated but to my surprise, we were accommodated at once.

I love their interiors. They have a cool pond inside their restaurant.

???????????????????????????????

They have a very spacious place and has 2nd floor to accommodate more people. We were directed to our table at the 2nd floor to be seated.

The tour guide brought us here at Thu Thao Restaurant to eat our lunch. I think the reason he brought us here is because it is already past noon and this is the nearest “clean” restaurant from the temple.

We stayed at Thien Tung hotel until our last day in Vietnam. Basically, they serve the same breakfast everyday with a little variation on the menu but no major change.

Their breakfast buffet is located at the top most [13th floor] of the hotel. The elevator is only up to the 12th floor so you need to use the stairs to reach the top.  As I mentioned in my previous blog post, the elevator is so slow. It is better (and healthier) to use the stairs than to waste your time waiting for the elevator.

Just beside the entrance, the noodles and bread section is situated. You can toast your bread in the toaster before eating.

At the opposite side beside the entrance you can see the rice and noodles.

Across the room, they have a huge aquarium with a huge fish inside swimming back and forth.

We had our dinner at the Ben Thanh Night Market. Night market starts from 7:30 PM until midnight. Not only you can find restaurant here, but you can also find souvenirs and other street food. We ate at Quan Loc Thanh.

???????????????????????????????

A huge menu board is displayed so that passersby would have an idea what food they serve. While waiting to be seated, you can choose here what you would like to order.

Basically, the chairs and tables are set up under a huge tent.

You can also see the chef preparing your dishes.

On our way to Ho Chi Minh City, we stopped at Mekong Rest Stop. Our tour guide recommended that we have our lunch here.

???????????????????????????????

Since the set-up of the restaurant is open, insects are flying freely  around but they are manageable. We just “shoo” them away from time to time so that they won’t stay in our place.

Our hotel booking comes with free buffet breakfast. Their buffet breakfast is being served on the 9th floor of the hotel.

 We had our breakfast at 7:00AM because our tour will start at 8:00AM. When we reached the restaurant, the room is almost full. This is because most of the people checked in the hotel are also tourists, they will leave the hotel early to have more time to explore the area. I first ate my breakfast before taking pictures and by the time that I’m done eating, a lot of people have left already.

After our tour, we went to Can Tho where we stayed overnight. For dinner, it is not included in our tour package and Sao Hom Restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide to try. It is walking distance from our hotel and located near the river.
