It was the rhythmic sizzle và pop of the woks that convinced us lớn stay. After four grimy flights of stairs, we were starting to lớn question our Vietnamese friend’s recommendation. There were so many great places to lớn eat in Saigon. We were starving, but we considered turning back. Then we heard the music of the kitchen.

OK, it’s not exactly “home cooking,” but the Secret Garden offers traditional “home-style” Vietnamese food & is highly recommended by locals.
