When I was sixteen, a friend and I would clip a coupon out of the newspaper each week for a buy one get one meal at an all-you-can-eat crab legs buffet. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed this luxury meal and I still have so many good memories of our weekly nights out to enjoy crab legs drowning in butter.
To this day I still love a good meal made up of crab meat (and have been known to spend hours at Las Vegas buffets eating crab legs with my bestie Sarah!) So it comes as no surprise that my favorite meal we had in Saigon was a feast of fresh crab.
And when I say fresh, I mean that right at the front doorway there's a case of crabs all lined up, with their little pinchers still dancing in the air. I'll spare you the photo of them still alive and move onto the meal. We started with crab rolls right out of the frying pan, still sizzling and incredible. Then comes the plate of crab. And you take a bite and hear angels singing.
One thing that I found endearing about the little places we ate at were at the end of the meal you get a toothpick (very helpful!) and also a wet nap with the wrapper acting as their business card. So there's the address of the place we ate at, which I highly highly recommend. It has multiple floors with different dining rooms and the shot above of the kitchen is the opening doorway to the restaurant.
We left blissfully stuffed, with the food plus two beers + a Coke only costing $12 and that's actually considered on the higher end for a meal like this. That price definitely beats my old splurge on the crab buffet and hey - no buy one get one coupon even needed!
