Our next stop is the Vietnamese Village Restaurant for snacks. Located at a former refugee center for Vietnamese boat people, the restaurant is run by a young Vietnamese woman.
Our group went there and sampled the beef stew noodles, oven-fresh garlic French bread, and the best ripe mango shake I’ve ever tasted. You can also sample other varieties of their noodle soup as well as other popular Vietnamese food. Behind the restaurant is a souvenir shop where you can find quaint Vietnamese crafts, coffee drips made out of tin, souvenir items, and some Vietnamese preserved fruits.
Our driver took us for a drive around the village after eating snacks, and there we saw a Vietnamese bakery that sells French bread, a rice noodle factory, and several homes of local Vietnamese who chose to stay and live in Palawan.
