The first thing you need know about Vietnamese ducks is that they’re meaty and not fatty, yet they’re still succulent and delicious. The base of the broth is more herbal-esque because the duck is stewed with shiitake mushrooms, dried tangerine fruit skin, star anise, whole cloves, and cinnamon. Therefore, you know the soup is going to be robust and savory with many amazing flavor notes. The broth is dark and rich but still light. So when compared to other soups, it’s definitely in a league of it’s own. It’s eaten with fresh egg noodles and Chinese cabbage and, often times, people will add a little bit chili oil/sauce for a kick.

They are not skimping on the size and quality of the duck here, because it’s ginormous and so juicy! You have a choice of fried or braised duck and, to me, both are mouthwatering and stunning.

Drinks and Desserts: They offer a plethora of choices. From regular fruit juices to exotic drinks like passion fruit (Chanh Dây), pennywort (Rau Má), and salted apricot (Xí Muội). They offer many kind of Chè (Vietnamese dessert soup) like Asian fruit cocktail (Chè Thai), Chinese herbal sweet soup (Sâm Bổ Lượng), and 3 color dessert (Chè Ba Màu). Sounds interesting? You should give some of these desserts or drinks a try. You only live once!

About Linh

"I love to eat. I live to eat. I travel to eat." It only took a short amount of time for me to find out that the rat race, corporate life was not the life I want and that pushing papers was not as creatively stimulating as they advertised. As a result, I exchanged my suits for suitcases and setting on a year long journey to Southeast Asia. For each country I visit, my goal is to immerse myself in its culture and, of course, feast my way through all of its delicacies.
