Vietnam: Hot Tofu in Saigon – by Nguyen Le

I called her "grandma" even though we are not blood-related. This street vendor has been serving hot tofu in my neighbourhood for as long as I can remember. Whenever I look back at my childhood, I think of her bowl of hot tofu that put a smile on my face every time I saw it. Although this is not an easy job that she has, I can feel her genuine love for her job, observing the way that she serves her customers. Her tofu, however, is not the most delicious cuisine I can find in this world, but her smile is definitely the warmest I have seen in my life.
