Bringing the ethnic northwest to the heart of Saigon – VnExpress International


The cafe, named ‘Nha cua Mi’, at 110 Vu Huy Tan Street in Binh Thanh District sprawls over 200 square meters in size. At the entrance are rows of golden corn hanging to dry from the ceiling. This is a custom among many ethnic groups in Vietnam’s northwestern region, who hang not only corn but also wheat, barley, grains, and other harvests from the ceiling.
Its owner Le Thi Hang says: “I was not born in the northwestern region. But, since I lived and worked there for two decades, the locality has a special place in my heart and I wanted to bring this part of me to the cafe.”
“Nha cua Mi” means “House of Mi”, name of a major character in “Vo chong A Phu”, a well-known book written in 1952 by To Hoai about the northwestern region’s people.
