Snail filled with pork ground meat, or probably something else - usually one of favorite entrée at classy restaurant, esp. in a Northern style, but here where I had this dish is just a simple popular street stall. To my curious question "Why here you serve only this "ốc bươu nhồi thịt", nothing else?", the young lady said "it's our signature dish and family business, we are selling for over 20 years!"
Wow, only one simple dish and over 20 years! Snail filled with a combination of ground pork meat , snail meat, wood ear mushroom...well seasoned with some lemon grass, chili, herbs.... Dip sauce is sweet spicy fish sauce and a basket of different fresh herbs...and people keep coming to enjoy and as I noticed many orders to take home, one dozen, two, three dozens...! One snail costs 5,000 VND!
Better to eat when it's still hot! Don't hesitate, seeing a big snail's shell...
I really have no idea the snail we tried to day is the same "yellow snail" that our farmers always try to clean up! Maybe the same!
