Baskin Robbins

I know this isn’t much news but IS a sign!

With the steady influx of Western food stores, it could mean that Starbucks and McDonald’s aren’t far behind.

Since we moved here, we’ve seen Subway, Dominos, and Carl’s Jr. enter the Saigon hub.

Now, it’s Baskin Robbins.  I’m not sure how many outlets it has in Vietnam but in Saigon, I’ve spotted two — one near Ben Thanh Market at Le Loi St. and another at Nguyen Thi Minh Khai St.

After being under the Saigon hot sun, who can say no to ice cream?

There were so many to choose from that it was terrific to just taste first a few.

I would have loved to sprinkle my ice cream with these stuff but the ghost of my “almost” gestational diabetes days was haunting me.

Ice cream in Baskin Robbins is of course expensive but luckily we were wearing something PINK today and it meant we can get a regular scoop for the price of the value scoop! Yay!

A terrific ending to a hot, hot afternoon!

    Baskin Robbins has been here for years. They used to have a store on Dong Khoi Street on the ground floor of the Huong Sen Hotel.

    Better ice cream is to be had on three corners of the Le Loi & Pasteur intersection, great places for people watching and seeing how many Vinasun taxi’s run the red lights compare to Mai Linh (Vinasun wins hands down)

    Hi there, its true, Baskin robbins used to be there from as early as 1997-1998. However they dissapeared for a very long time. Its great to know my favourite ice cream chain is on the return!
