Tips for you
This was a place that Anthony Bourdain recommended so we decided to give it a try. There are no words to describe how delicious our meal was! We had shrimp, fish and crab. The restaurant is not frequented by many tourist and is more of a local experience, if that is what you are looking for. The owner of the restaurant, Thi Nhan, greeted us when we arrived. She took us to the back of the restaurant and had us select our crabs. She showed us a whole fish and recommended that we have that too (in addition to the shrimp that we had already ordered). After we picked the fresh catch of the day, I stayed in the kitchen to watch the food preparation. It was such a great experience. All the vegetables were fresh and had to be prepared. I recorded Thi cooking the fish and crab, explaining what she put in the pans. Our crab was cooked in a tamarind sauce and it was to die for! I think this is one of the best meals we had in Vietnam. It was definitely one of the more expensive meals in Vietnam but worth it. If you eat here, there are two things I would highly recommend, the crab and shrimp. After dinner, the owner was so nice to offer to go out to get us coffee (she does not serve coffee in her restaurant) even though we did not ask or want coffee. She also gave us a phone number for taxi service in the event that we couldn't get a hold of one in the town center. Overall, if you want a good and authentic experience, do try Thi Nhan.
