I just discovered Vietnammm.com - a website that allows you to order food online to have it delivered. Yep, SO nice when you don't have a motorcycle. :)
I live in the nice part of Ho Chi Minh right now - District 2 - which means that the food prices are "high" (but still nothing compared to the USA). Today I ordered 6 full sub sandwiches (very similar to Jimmy Johns), two loaves of bread, and a guava juice for $5.20 (about $.60 per large sub). As they have a minimum order amount of $5 for free delivery, I decided to order my meals for the next week all at once! :)
I have a good fridge but am not sure how well (or not) food saves here minus the crazy preservatives we have in the U.S. But I'm hopeful!
I also found another place online that delivers for $.50 and their full pho meals are a little less than one dollar.
I'm still a huge fan of my Asparagus Breakfast place below my apartment, but so excited to try all these new foods at a lesser cost. I have been going to the Asparagus everyday and having their DELICIOUS pho and coconut "milkshakes". It costs less than a burger in the States and it's the perfect environment to write, work and practice my Vietnamese.
Oh how I've missed you Vietnam - can't get any better than this! :)
