Ate great food at several small restaurant and market stalls that were the best of their type. There's no way I would have found these on my own, even if I had weeks to do so. Instead, in about 4.5 hours we tried a large...More

The sweetwater noodles and the barbecued rabbit were the highlights for me! Worth every penny we paid. The only recommendation I could make is that water should be more readily available. I only had 2 chances for water in almost 5 hours.
