The World
This Geo Quiz might make you hungry! We're looking for a large city in Southeast Asia. The city's name means "city of angels." It became its country's capital in the 18th century. It's big: roughly nine million people live in the city. And it has great food and not merely in the fancy restaurants. "The less aesthetic appeal a restaurant has, the better the food is going to be.
