Saigon has a more international food culture than other Vietnamese cities - not only did we spot our first McDonalds and KFC but Korean, Japanese and Chinese restaurants abound. I used the insane heat as an excuse to introduce my parents to my favourite Korean dessert, patbingsu, at Caffe Bene. I don't like ice cream so this shaved ice dessert is a saviour in 35 degree heat (which in a busy city feels even hotter).
