Had a pretty good broken rice I.e. Com tam with bbq pork chops, which was juicy and sweet. A bit pricey but portions are ample and you definitely won't go hungry. Comes with a few choices of soup as well.

My boyfriend and I love eating here! Definately the BEST porkchop + broken rice in town! 80k for a huge piece of porkchop and an egg on top. I highly recommended to everyone! They are only open from 9am to 1pm maybe 2pm.

Recommended by a vietnamese friend who frequents HCMC, this place is for the fan of Com Tam, or better known to Australian's as Broken Rice. Easily the best I've ever had!! Worth the taxi ride there. Be sure you have the address for the driver as it's not easy to find (I've updated the deets on this restaurants location. Enjoy!

This ain't no fine diner, but you would need to go to Perry's Bar and Grill to get close to the flavor of this pork chop. Had it with an egg sunny and crispy and damn it is FINE !!!! Washed down with a Heineken. No question, will be back.
