I wouldn't say what I'm sharing with you is our street food, but it's 100% surely not from fancy dining spot, it's just a very down-to-earth eating place, where you can spend good time with friends, having very good food and it doesn't damage your wallet very much at the end!
My first "dining out" post is "Specialities from Phan homeland!"(Đặc sản Đất Phan). Phan here means Phan Thiết, 200km away from Sài gòn, a center of many well-known resorts by South China Sea or locally we call East Sea, a very hot spot for many tourist in Vietnam and overseas, a week-end relaxing place for families. In next several years, hopefully, Phan Thiết could become one of the most competitive destinations for tourists in South East Asia along with Phuket or Bali!
We arrived to "Đất Phan" around 7:00PM, while waiting for another friends, we have "fish cake roll" as starters. It's a rice paper roll filled with fish cake (of course!), boiled duck egg, very crispy deep-fried rice paper, a lot of veggies and dipping peanut sauce! When I bite this roll, I love the sound from crispy deep fried rice paper inside! Amazing!
