Bo Ne Nano
It’s time to explore a little Western flavor in Saigon! Bo ne, or Banh mi bit tet, cannot be missed in your list of Vietnamese street food if you stay in Thao Dien for a long while.
This dish is truly an excellent fusion between Western and Vietnamese cuisine. Thin beefsteak, French fries, spring onions, pâté, and a sunny-side-up egg are all presented sizzling on a hot platter.
