    About This Episode:
    Today, we're in Saigon going down a narrow alleyway to search out the best breakfast (well, at least my favorite) in Saigon!

    The woman's restaurant is right next door to:
    214/B16A Nguyễn Trãi

    She is usually open everyday from 6:30AM - 9:30AM.

    About Sonny Side:
    I’m not sponsored. I’m not rich. I’m just some guy who wanted to make the type of travel videos that I would want to see. This show is completely self-funded so thanks for patiently watching that five second advertisement (and read below how you can support this channel).

    I am a video director by trade. Each time I travel to a new country I bring a cameraman with me, usually a friend, to shoot as many episodes as possible in a short amount of time (usually a week). The rest of the time I’m working as a video director/videographer in Vietnam and editing the crap out of these videos.

    Much love and remember, Don't Think, Just Chew.

      Just let Sonny do what he wants. This is HIS channel and your mere hate comment will only fuel him more, you ignorant piece of shit.

      JohnnyFD is a Scam Artist How annoying, Sonny is a YouTuber who works hard at what he does. Have you even watched enough videos by him to come to that conclusion? What, are you taking your anger out in the comment section because your life is ass? You are the “delusional dip shit” and YouTube will be better off without you and the person who originally commented this. People love to hate when others gravitate towards a side more and suddenly you just HAVE to be the devil’s advocate and defend so hard that Sonny does “trash content”. I hope you get hit by a truck. 😀

    We have NO time for haters who feel the need to degrade what you do. I don’t see it hurting anybody that you review food on the best ever food review show. As the year moves along, we should just shut up and appreciate what we have. I will gladly call myself a ‘Besties’ if that is still a thing you do.

                                          this is just an fyi that you didnt asked for but,

                                          i would suggested that you dont call every ladies in vietnam "em". it just kind of sound like you're hitting on them. i know you're still learning vietnamese and am quite impressed with your pronunciation. so here's a vietnamese 101:

                                          for anyone that's younger than you you would use "em". mostly associated with a female but most people tend to forget that it can also be used for male if they are younger than you.

                                          use "chi" for any women older than you. this just let them know that you have respect for them since most asian culture value the elders more than the youth. i know in western society, it's rude to call people old but in asian it'll be like that lol.

                                          use "co" for women that are senior citizens. again, same thing. its just showing them respect.

                                          use "anh" for any men that's around your age but aren't seniors citizens yet. i'll say around your age to 50. it's just again a nice way to show respect.

                                          use "chu" for any men that senior citizens. again with the showing respects to your elders.

                                          *most of the vietnamese words i used dont have accents on them bc i dont know to add accents to my keyboard so you should get a vietnamese person to pronounce these words to you bc the accents will affect the pronunciation of each words.

                                          hope this was helpful :)
