Thien Kim is very crowded on the Buddha’s birthday and the 15th day of the Lunar month. But on ordinary days, you will not find too many diners here. Therefore, it is easy to call for your friends and have a healthy vegetarian meal together in this restaurant.
Hotpots are the most popular food in Thien Kim and also on the list of the best dishes in Saigon. The tastiest one is definitely vegetarian goat-meat hotpot. You will see the reason why when you bite the first piece of goat-meat. Although it is not real, the meat is tough and has muscle fibers just like genuine meat.
In addition, the spices of all dishes are carefully added and allowed to be steeped. Some Chinese herbs are even put in some time, making the food not only delicious but also healthy.
Your Saigon food tour will be much more interesting with such vegetarian dishes.
