Vietnamese Grocery Odyssey


Sometimes the best tourists attractions are the ones you would least expect. 
Sure, you can learn a lot about Vietnam by visiting Hue’s Imperial Citadel. 
You can also learn a lot about Vietnam by visiting the grocery store outside the Citadel. 

There you will find entire aisles devoted to chili sauce, Oreos sold with spoon taped to them, glasses and plates that come with the purchase of a ketchup bottles and so much more! 
I also discovered that I love all Vietnamese snacks. Cookies, cakes, chips, drinks. 
Everyone of them delicious.

Aisles of hot sauce

Purchase of Oreos come with the gift of a spoon

Purchase this ice tea to get a free glass cup

This mayonnaise will reward you with a spoon

But this mayonnaise will reward you with a glass bowl

Jelly candies by the kilo
