He is now the owner and chief of the Bangkok Noodle Restaurant at 261 CMT8 Street, Tan Binh District, Ho Chi Minh City. "I understand that the Vietnamese have long been acquainted with some of Thailand's food. However, this is the first time they can enjoy kuay-tiew-lua, a very popular and typical rice noodle soup from my homeland," said Mr.Kit in fluent Vietnamese.
