Overall, she had very solid recommendations (and in a week in HCMC, we tried a bunch of them). While I appreciate Elly mainly limiting her recs to Q1, I think that an expanded book including Q3 would be very useful. Also, her An Dong Market recommendation (to try the food stalls in the basement) was an unfortunate fail -- we got seriously overcharged (the foreigner tax) for some pretty weak fare. But overall, a useful purchase and one I would recommend to anyone going to HCMC.
I was fairly disappointed with this book. It seemed to be more of a memoir than a travel guide. It was well-written, in that sense, but I was looking for more of a guide on where to get the best local food. Her stance on eating dog, I though was pretty judgmental, but I think that's ok if you view this as a memoir instead of a travel guide.
