If you only had one night in Saigon or for any reason you went on a diet during vacation and had an intake quota, this is the place you have to be.
Amazing food at an amazingly cheap price (I know food in Vietnam in general are cheap but tell me what ‘cheap’ is after you have been there). Unlike any of those places where they rip off the tourists, people there were very friendly and helpful. They kept reminding us to take good care of our phones and cameras while we were overjoyed by the free internet (Oh yes they have free wifi, the last thing you would expect from a place like this) and snapchat-ing our friends to make sure jealousy was all over.
So how does it work? Choose your seafood and the way you would like it to be prepared. As recommended by the locals, we had our scallops and abalones grilled and clams boiled with garlic and green onion. They were heavenly good. I in particular liked the clams, they were just so fresh that you basically do not need any additional flavours.
After all, the place is pretty close to the backpacker district if you fancy a red chair beer and a wild night out.
They grill it in front of you.
The neighbouring stalls offer different appetisers and desserts (I like the way they operate so its more like a cooperation instead of competition)
We ordered the shrimp spring rice rolls from the lady opposite.
Side note: Electricity went out at some point but as you could see, no one seems to give a damn.
Right, so how much we paid? Less than 5 euros per head.
Thank you very much.
