    Kim's Cafe: Try the Vietnamese Fish Sour Soap

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located at the backpackers area, a few steps from Sinh Cafe where lots of foreign tourists and locals eat. Prices are very reasonable (I think cheaper than most) and very delicious.

    Favorite Dish: After a hot 1-day tour at the Cu Chi Tunnel & Cao Dai Temple, we have to replace the fluids in our bodies. We ordered the Vietnamese Fish Sour Soup (among other things) and we were very pleased with the tasty & nourishing combination of seafood & veggies. Being an Asian dish, you have to eat it with rice mixed with the soup. Make sure you request for the fish sauce with chili that goes very well with it. Suggest you use spoon & fork because it would be very difficult to eat wet rice with chopsticks:-)

    Kim's Cafe: Fresh vegetables - nutrition guaranteed!

    by worldkiwi Written May 13, 2005

    This small cafe is on De Tham Street, right in the bustling and interesting heart of the Pham Ngu Lao backpacker area. The cafe has the obligatory travel agent attached - a norm in this area. However, the cafe is the real highlight. The menu is full of food packed with vegetables and the restaurant appears to pride itself on the hygenic and fresh food. In dire need of iron, I chowed down on a delicious spinach soup one evening while waiting for my "open-tour" bus to Mui Ne. Prices are good and the food is just what every traveller needs - tasty and healthy!

    Favorite Dish: I can recommend the spinach and pork soup.

    Kim's Cafe: Back packer District favourite, one of them

    by cochinjew Written Dec 7, 2002

    This street is the centre of backpacker mecca. hundreds of establishments of all sorts caring for all the needs of the backpacker crowd.
    Nothing special regarding atmosphere or food. just a restaurant in midst of many where you could sit down and eat

    Favorite Dish: rice noodle soup with seafood.
