The special thing about this restaurant is that this restaurant is not “picky” to choose customers, the shop sells very affordable prices from 10,000 VND to 40,000 VND / bowl so everyone can eat.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Bich, the owner of the sausage porridge shop, said that she opened a shop for sale from 1993 up to now.

“The restaurant serves mainly local people, so the price is very affordable, whoever eats a bowl of food, I sell as much.

There are customers who are labor workers with little income, 10,000 VND or 15,000 VND / bowl I all sell. Only customers traveling by car will sell 40,000 VND / car and add a plate of cake to eat with. You get what you pay for, but the restaurant mainly serves popular customers, not only luxury customers, “shared Ms. Bich.
