I went to this restaurant with two foreign friends who live in Hà Nội on such a very special day for Vietnamese. Yes, it was Independence day, the 2nd of September. People seemed to be surprised to see us there, but we were there anyway.
The food was good for me of course and my friends said it was an interesting experience. Cooked Dog meat is just like other dish in Vietnam, served with different herbs and ingredients according to a very special recipe. What we ordered was Grilled dog with galangal and lemongrass, Boiled Dog in a bamboo stock, Stewed Dog with finely chopped lemongrass, Steamed Dog black pudding with peanuts, apricot leaves and sweet basil, Stir fried Dog meat with finely chopped lemongrass, ginger and chilli, Steamed Dog meat over Dog stock, but our favorite was Boiled Dog leg in Dog bone stock with young bamboo. All of these dishes have to be eaten with "mắm tôm" (fermented shrimp sauce), chilli, chopped lemongrass, fresh apricot leaves and squeezed lemon.
We ended up paying 180,000Vnd for three people with five beers and a coke which is really cheap.
