This dish is essentially fresh clams and mussels cooked in a sweet and spicy lemongrass broth that is deeply aromatic and well flavoured. The clams are fresh and succulent, making slurping them out of their shells a breeze.
If you think the French influence on culinary traditions in Vietnam stops at banh mi, here’s a fusion dish to keep on your radar.
Bánh xèo ($11.50), which literally translates into “sizzling cake,” is a crêpe made from rice flour colored with turmeric and packed with a filling of mung bean paste, shrimp, bean sprouts, enoki mushrooms and sliced pork. The locals would wrap up these slices in an array of herbs into a mini spring roll, then dipping them into nuoc cham, sweetened fish sauce with chile. A dish you would have to prepare to get your hands dirty!
With its relatively affordable price points, robust and deeply scented flavours, these are dishes that respectfully reminisce the food on the streets of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. If you're ready to explore beyond the basic Vietnamese dishes like pho and spring rolls, this place will impress you no less. Way to go, Mộc Quán!
