The hotel folks pointed us to Intimex near Hoan Kiem for the nearest supermart.
Along a modern street of upmarket fashion...spotted charles and keith there!
Vietnam's version of Lay's. Both flavours were barely any different. I suppose chips are chips, and I wonder why they even bother with flavours.
The equivalent of pringles, only more powdery.
Fruit chips in a bag!
Fruit chips fried so crisp, risking a bad throat is well worth it. These taste so much like the real thing, right down to the starchy after taste.
Rice crackers to rival Want-want, these are dryer than the ones we have here. Liked the grainy finish though! A cheapo alternative but not too bad replica!
Another peanut candy that would need some jaw exercise but moderately sweet!
Too sweet and milky for what I thought was coconut juice.
Birds Nest “White Fungus” Drink
Caprisonne Grape Drink
I just could not resist this childhood fruit drink!
Smelt like potpurri and tasted odd. It could be the spices used that made it really queer.
For a weather with temperatures soaring to 37 degrees, icecream of any sort and form is always welcome.
Soggy cone meets vanilla chocolate icecream, nothing to yell about but it quelled the heat momentarily.
My favourite Vietnamese brand of icecream in my favourite flavour too!
Green rice icecream, I missed you so! Right down to the coconut flakes, this asian dessert was nailed so right. Says who treats like these have to come expensive?
Coconut milk flavoured icecream too!
Double happiness. Milky and very refreshing
