Xoi, It's What's For Dinner

I wanted some Chinese steamed buns for dinner, but all the "banh bao" ladies weren't manning their spots tonight.

I checked early in the evening and no one was around in the four spots I visited. Thought maybe I was early so I went home and then returned to wander the streets a few hours later. Still no one was around.

I settled instead for some Xoi from the banh mi vendor. Except for the peanuts, fried onions, and the oiled spring onions, the toppings on this Xoi Thap Cam (xoi combo) is basically the innards of a banh mi. It was surprisingly cheap at 8k.

There was no other food options, so I would've paid at least twice that.
