Close by Old Market Saigon, Chuyen Ky Saigon rice noodle shop was opened in 1948, so far 73 years have passed but the traditional taste is still intact, nowhere else can be.
Rice bowl is a familiar dish of Cantonese people. Chuyen Ky is one of the rare bowls of rice in Saigon that retains the traditional flavor of Chinese dishes. The shop was opened in 1948, currently inherited by Mrs. My My and Thuy Thuy.
The restaurant is decorated like a normal house, very rustic. Outside there is a signboard “Specialist Rice Shop” painted with paint, bearing the nostalgia of Saigon in the 75s. The shop is not very big, only 5-6 stainless steel tables and plastic chairs. The wall is covered with small blue tiles. It is known that this wall has existed since 1970 and is still preserved until now.
In particular, the restaurant still uses rice bowls produced in the oven, including Binh Duong, decades ago. Up to now, this type of bowl is no longer sold, so this old set of tools has become a unique feature of Chuyen Ky.
