BAT & BAT MAIN DISHES
Bat & Bat dishes are served in a pan on a brazier with a selection of herbs for you to taste and cook directly at your table, in the marinade… They are served with rice vermicelli.
LARGE "BO BUN" SALADS (pronounced "Bo boon")
Lovers of fresh coriander will especially enjoy this large hot and cold salad (shredded lettuce, bean sprouts, carrots, cucumber) where the combination of chopped mint, coriander and fresh onion gives a delicate blend of flavours. Served with rice vermicelli (bun), cooked to order, the ground peanuts add a crunchy texture to the dish. For the ultimate bo bun, two fried spring rolls can be added to the salad for extra crunch. Seasoned with “magic sauce” or a black soy sauce.
SOUP PHO (pronounced "fu" like in “fur”)
Thought to be inspired by the French "pot au feu", in Vietnam, Pho soup is a dish that is eaten at any time of the day. Flavoured with fresh herbs (corianders) and served with fresh rice noodles, it is often the only course in a Vietnamese meal.
You cut the herbs into the soup to infuse, add lemon, chilli and bean sprouts, and dip in the sauce…
GRILLED FINGER FOOD
Eating with your hands is a tradition in Vietnam. To keep hands clean, meat, noodles and herbs are wrapped in a lettuce leaf or in rice paper; you dip them in the sauce and the ground peanuts, and voilà! These grilled dishes are traditionally Hanoi street food, cooked close to the ground on small braziers. They are served with rice vermicelli and herbs of your choice. They can be enjoyed at any time of day or night with a beer or flavoured green tea.
