Vietnamese Delights Take Two at Vietnomnom Maginhawa

It’s my first time in Maginhawa. Known as a big food jungle that is home to new restaurant concepts, food parks and themed cafes, Maginhawa’s food choices seemed horrendously endless. Having thought that we’d end up chaotically checking each restaurant and confusing ourselves with the number of  selections, we settled on a recent craving of mine:…
