Before the cooking class we met up at Bến Thành Market .
Its one of the most famous stops in Saigon aka Ho Chi Minh City. We of course did a tour of the produce and meat sections and purchased items for our class. I ate some breakfast (noodles) before meeting up with the group. Here is a look at some photos from the market.

|I chose this spot because it said “vegetarian/vegan” when I ordered my noodles the lady asked if I wanted chicken and shrimp 🙁|
|There was tofu and some other gray flat substance that I wasn’t sure about 🙁|
|Tofu everywhere tofu!|
|I thought her phone was cute.|
|Business as usual|
|Raw tumeric. Looks just like ginger but orange 🙂|
|He drank to much tanqueray and ended up here.|

|Business transaction done!|

|The one that got away..didn’t get very far.|
|Beef bones and Knee caps for soup.|
