Saigon Part II 2006

Petro hotel- river side Rest

My sister and her friends invited me out for dinner at the Petrol Hotel (funny name because it's owned by Petrovietnam) along the Saigon river. We chose some really good stir fried crabs with sweet and sour tamarind sauce, mango salad with prawn and spices, stir fried tofu with chilli and lemongrass, steamed squid dipped in ginger fish sauce and the last dish is the very special Dieu Hong fish. The crab was amazing because of the tamarind mixture with sweet sauce that suits the crab meat perfectly.

They also serve BBQ here as well which are presented beautifully on banana leaves. Just choose what you want and cook it at your table.

The food was delicious in this very romantic place which is good for couples, groups of friends and family parties.

This crab is a specialty of my moms and she makes it wonderfully. A lot of your food posts have me thinking back to when I was a kid. Lucky you.
