Original noodle shop Minh Huong in Sai Gon runs over 40-year stall

Original noodle shop Minh Huong in Sai Gon runs over 40-year stall

In an alley on Le Van Sy Street in Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Binh District stands Say’s family noodle shop. It has been standing there since 1975.

The owner, 70 plus years old, tends to the stall himself, putting wonton pieces into the broth.

Mr Say said that his family were descendants of the Minh Huong people, a group of Chinese nationals who took refugee in southern Vietnam back in the 17th-18th century. While the dish they cook is similar to Vietnamese ways of cooking, it still retains its original, authentic flavor.

Before opening for business, the family prepares all the ingredients – noodles, wonton, vegetables and meat. The shop stays open throughout the day.

Every noodle soup bowl is served with a crispy shrimp puff on top.

The freshly made noodles should be served as soon as it is prepared to prevent it frobecoming soggy.

The aromatic and seasoned filling of the wonton has been satisfying taste buds for you. Let's try and enjoy it!
