Minh Châu Restaurant

My aunt and uncle own this small family restaurant in Nga Ba An Trach, about 3 miles from Soctrang, Vietnam. They started off selling pastries and prepared dried food.  Later they expanded to serve hot food.  They have rice plates and different types of noodle soup.  I must say their food is excellent. You can also observe this by the many mini-vans and buses that stop here for food.  Many return customers keep coming back for their good home-style cooking.  I love eating their noodle soup in the morning.  If you like noodles then this is the right place to eat!!
