Recently I had the good fortune of traveling to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. It was an amazing place, full of awesome people and unbelievable food! In fact, I ate my way through the entire city!
Friends here in Pittsburgh know how much I like the Pho at Pho Kim 88, but I can tell you it doesn't compared to eating the authentic stuff, on a small street, next to the Saigon River!
While the trip itself was totally epic, the 20+ hour flight time was not! And while having no issue with any of the "different" dishes I tried in Vietnam, some nasty airplane Bibimbap left me with some...let's say stomach issues!
I know what you're thinking. "Why the hell would you eat Bibimbap on an airplane?" Normally I always go with the vegetarian meal when I fly, but after 7 hours on the first plane, and another 15 to go on the second & thrid, I obviously wasn't thinking clearly (ie; Bimimbap for breakfast).
