Previously, this shop was just a small sidewalk cart on the curb of Ban Co street intersecting with Nguyen Dinh Chieu street, the place of sale was not fixed but moved and moved every day. Now the business is quite good and known by more people, so the owner Van decided to rent a house nearby to trade eggs. Customers are also arranged to have more spacious and comfortable seats, rather than having to “carry a chair” to find a seat as before. After moving into a spacious house, more and more people know about this duck nut shop, so it’s only 7-8 o’clock every day and the scrambled eggs are gone, only eggs and other items are left.
