44/50.-Saigon, Lau Restaurant


In the picture you can see a Lau restaurant. Lau, also known as 'Hot Pot', is a Saigon specialty where customers are served a boiling casserole with a fire to keep it hot. There is the meat, the sea food, the fish and even the snake Lau. If you want to taste them all, order the mixed Hot Pot. The waiter will explain you when, and for how long, you have to put the meat and the vegetables in the broth. You may also order some noodles and put them in the pot. Lau was one of my favorite dishes, so don' miss it!

I was told that people from Saigon like Lau because they can eat this dish for hours while drinking beer. Yes, people in the South of Vietnam are heavy drinkers.
