    Vietnamese food is amazing! This past March I was in Vietnam and sampled banh xeo (pronounced as banh say-oh), or Vietnamese crepes with bean sprouts :clap

    Wife and I loved the Video VietHorse, brought back some great memories of our trip this year. For some reason I can't get that video to embed on an external site either. I double checked and am out of ideas.
