Food Trip: KOTO

I’ve heard about KOTO for a while now but haven’t tried their restaurant.  KOTO is short for  Know One Teach One.

According to their website, “KOTO is a not-for-profit restaurant and vocational training program that is changing the lives of street and disadvantaged youth in Vietnam.” So how could you not drop by and enjoy a meal?

Luckily, they opened a restaurant at Kumho Link replacing Givral Cafe at the rooftop, where it was more accessible to me. 😛

This was more than enough for lunch! The ingredients were fresh and the food is absolutely delicious! And the staff were professional and accommodating!

I am so glad that they set-up shop in Kumho!

    Can you tell us more about the KOTO program? I’d be interested to hear your experience of it in action!

    The look so delicious, I read that Vietnam has one of the weirdest yet most delicious meals.
    I love trying new things and Vietnam just made my bucket list, there’s too much news on them I need to go see for myself.
