The Vietnam War forced many Vietnamese families to flee Saigon for other parts of the world. Their children are often referred to as Viet-Kieu, people of Vietnamese descent who grew up outside of Vietnam. David explores the incredible food scene of this dynamic city and meets a few Viet-Kieu who have now returned to their ancestral home, looking for new opportunities that are now available in the new Saigon.
After falling in love with the sights, smells and of course flavours of Southeast Asia in his many travels through the region, David Rocco has decided to see what this tropical wonderland has in store for him. Travelling to Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, David learns traditional dishes and samples the street food he’s heard about from foodies all over the world.Seeing first-hand the unique cultures thriving in rural villages and the bustling cosmopolitan cities, David is inspired to share with the world the stories of the people he meets along the way.
