Put the meat like Bangseo in rice paper, add a variety of vegetables, and then dip it in the sauce of your choice, depending on your preference, after steaming. For all food sources of this sort, the sauce is vital. By picking the sauce that matches your taste, you can appreciate it scrumptiously.

Authentic local ambiance! The food is delicious, embracing a truly local taste perspective. Regarding hygiene, given the local atmosphere, exercise your discretion when making a decision to visit. If you prioritize impeccable cleanliness and have sensitivity to hygiene, you might consider opting for a more upscale dining establishment rather than the local scene.
Neighboring eateries share similar menus, and places known for the delightful flavor of “mắm tôm” (shrimp fish paste) attract crowds. The combination of mackerel with rice is truly delightful. After your meal here, heading towards the end of the main road, you’ll find “chè NaNa,” where you can relish durian-flavored Thai-style shaved ice, along with options like avocado ice cream. For those who can’t visit Bac My An Market, this is a suitable alternative.
