Quán Ăn Ngon

We arrived at this restaurant almost 8pm - which is too late, I don't understand why they bother to open till 11pm when most items were already out by then. They ran out of most items we wanted to try, so we went for the basics. Vietnamese spring rolls is a must!

Another version of spring rolls, which has duck meat inside. I think I prefer the regular ones..

Clams (VND90k / USD4)

You think it's the Chinese Balitong? No it's not. It has some kind of really funky smelly fishy taste that NONE of us could take it. We left the dish untouched, unfortunately. This dish is not for everyone...

Coconut and Prawn Salad

This is one really refreshing salad - I've never tried coconut shoot, it was our first time. Mild coconut flavour and it's slightly sweet!

Lemongrass and pork noodles. No comments except the portion is crazy huge that's enough to feed two pax.

Stir Fry Morning Glory

I thought the portion will be small, but it turns out to be so huge. If I knew it was going to be so much, I wouldn't have ordered this.

Steamed Clams with Minced Pork (VND90k / USD4)

Something we were so daring to order. It's basically just escargots, but Vietnamese version. The escargot is wrapped with minced pork meat and lemongrass. This is highly recommended - something very unique and no there is no smelly or unfresh taste!!

This is definitely too much for 5 pax. If you're visiting, be mindful that their portions is actually quite big so don't you over order!

Quan 138 is located opposite the Independent Palace. There are a few places with similar names, just in case you end up at the wrong spot.
