Đây là chỗ bánh mì chảo tui thường hay đi ăn nhất, một phần vì giá mềm, vừa ăn phần còn lại là do không khí nơi này. Chỗ này là một nơi bán lâu đời ở SG. Hồi xưa bán bên vỉa hè phía Lý Tự Trọng, sau này dẹp vỉa hè nên dời hẳn vào trong hẻm (thực ra là đường Đặng Trần Côn). Sau này có thêm một quầy ngay đầu hẻm, cị em để ý để tránh đi nhầm nhen. Bánh mì chảo ở đây cũng giản dị thôi, một phần đầy đủ có xíu mại, trứng, chả, pate, có rau chua, dưa leo, ngò ăn kèm. . Xíu mại ở đây kiểu sẽ chắc và có độ dai một chút (dùng muỗng xắn thử sẽ thấy). Hồi xưa sốt xíu mại có hơi nhạt, nay thấy có thay đổi, vị đậm đà hơn hẳn. . Nếu ai ko thích ăn xíu mại thì nhớ xin thêm sốt xíu mại để chấm bánh mì ăn sẽ ngon hơn nah. . Như nói ở trên, tui thích chỗ này ko chỉ vì món ăn mà còn là do ko khí nơi này. Kiểu giữa trung tâm SG nhộn nhịp, có một góc nhỏ yên bình, cô chú chủ cũng rất dễ thương, mỗi lẫn ăn xong tính tiền xong chú chủ cũng cám ơn, kiểu thân thương làm sao ấy. À ko hiểu duyên làm sao, lần nào ghé tui cũng ngồi bàn phía bên số 12 ấy, nhìn qua đối diện sẽ có một cổng vào, nhìn kiểu xưa cũ, có cái j đó rất thu hút. ———————–—––————————— ▪️Bánh mì chảo Đặng Trần Côn▪️ : 8 Đặng Trần Côn, Quận 1, HCM ⌚️: 04:00 - 11:30 : 60.000 VND/ 2 người. ———————–—––————————— #vscocam #vscosaigon #insaigon #cáofood #vscofood #instafood #iphoneonly #foodphotography #foodstyling #eatguide #foodaholic #chamiee #chamieechannel #chamieereview #chamieq1 #chamieequan1 #chamieeănno #quan1 #chamieeănsáng #chamieengonrẻ #dangtrancon #banhmichao #vietnamesefood #streetfood #banhmi

3. Best for delicate dining –  Japan


Japan has long been one of the reigning cities in the world when it comes to Michelin stars and fine dining.

Best for meat –  Argentina

Alternatively, head to the hills of the northern Lake District for fresh air, rolling grasslands, craggy outcrops, huge volcanoes, and fabulous estancias (farmhouses), which offer some of the finest meaty feasts possible.

In between eating, the horse riding is superb, you can spend your time with the gauchos rounding up the cattle, or venture into the hills to absorb the views of snow-capped mountains. 

Eat up: Meat doesn’t get more fresh, filling and traditional than at an estancia. Almost all of the produce will come from these farms themselves as they rear their own beef, hunt local venison and wild boar, make their own cheese and grow fruit and vegetables.
