I am excited to be here for breakfast I think they opened at about 7 a.m.. And there they sell out Pretty early so you have to come you have to come for breakfast Breakfast only here, and it looks like a lot of people are not only full It’s full now when I came I guess we go I came right as it open so we were the only ones here, but now the tables are full But it also looks like a lot of people. Just do take away then just park their motorbike there I wish you could smell this it smells unbelievably good I ordered the hoa la which are eggs and it’s in a little it’s in a little skillet a flaming hot skillet and I got two eggs there are some fried pieces of meat and Then some onions, and then yeah topped with some onions, and it looks incredible This is one of the most beautiful breakfasts I think I’ve eaten or I’m about to eat in a long time and it’s served with some toasted bagettes Really crusty loaves and also I got a little extra little full of pate and mayonnaise To go with my bread and then finally there are some pickled Vietnamese vegetables as well as uh tea, okay, I think I’m first just gonna take some pepper And let me let me pepper it up first You never go wrong with pepper and eggs Hahaha, yes, okay, that looks good, and maybe I should go in with uh oh no, okay, let me just go in for a bite first, first steak, for a steak bite All that is amazing. Thank you. oh that’s beautiful Oh yes that egg That egg is perfect.

You can actually like use it and cut your egg ohh man just that is just a beautiful thing Oh yeah, that’s awesome Okay next up. I’m gonna try some of this pate.
