I love Vietnam's pho noodles, the best food I tried in Saigon was their Pho noodles and it is amazing that Rene;s Saigon almost has it.

It was actually my first time to go to Puerto Princesa and I was really craving for Vietnamese food; aside from the chaolong of course. Man, the fresh spring rolls are so good, and the homebaked French bread is superb! I will definitely go back next year! The staff are awesome too!
