Life along the railroad tracks is as normal as can be with laundry hanging from the balconies, gossiping neighbors in front of their houses, tourists drinking coffee at ine of the ubiquitous bean shops while waiting for the train to pass by.
Restaurants serving Saigon specialities are on this street which is parallel to the railroad tracks. I was curious to know the differences in the cuisine. I’ll have to eat here and try their dishes next time.
I did enjoy the array of pastries offered at Coba Bakery and the baguettes, of course. It was the perfect place for a much needed brake from walking all day.
