Lunch at Quan An Ngon

Steamed bananas in coconut milk
Yum! Yum! Yum!

Vietnamese dessert
- their version of our chendol.
It has coconut milk, water chestnuts in tapioca flour,
chewy strips of tapioca flour, and jelly.

Vietnamese coffee
- definitely not for the faint hearted!
This coffee is so strong I felt really hyped up
after drinking some!

Sugar cane prawns
The waitress sliced the prawns and took away the
sugar cane (I'd always wondered if the sugar cane
was meant to be chewed on after eating the prawns - guess not!).
We then wrapped the sliced minced prawn in a rice paper roll
with some lettuce/leaves, finely sliced guava and


Grilled pig trotters in a Vietnamese broth
that comes with Vietnamese noodles (served separately)

Steamed Vietnamese rice rolls
- taste rather like our "chee cheong fun"

Pomelo Drink

Sapodilla drink
aka chiku drink!

Quan An Ngon is one of the more famous
and popular eateries around Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
Its concept is based on a collection of the more
commonly found Vietnamese street food
in a more upscale (and perhaps more hygienic) environment.

We discovered that the northern Vietnamese food
is rather different from that in the south.
Personally, I prefer the southern Vietnamese food
found in Ho Chi Minh.
