Vietnamese Snail Feast in Saigon – Ốc A Sòi Restaurant

Published by Darron Toy on

hey everyone it's our Queens I am in Saigon Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam and I'm sitting down for what is one of I guess you could call it a pastime or highly enjoy the skill in in Vietnam eating snail so first you choose your type of shellfish or snail and then once you let you know which snail you want then you tell them how you want to let it cook so they have like five different ways to cook it I think one is stir-fried sauteed like Steve a bunch of different ways like Vietnamese pastime it's extremely popular and whenever you eat shellfish and snails you have to be drinking beer as well at least everyone does so I MC right along the street actually just a couple blocks from where I'm staying and I have ordered a couple of different dishes of which a few I know what they are and a few I have no idea what they're all in one that just came all the crazy ones I'm not sure what kind of snail this is but it was recommended by our waiter this is a huge that's huge comparison of this one and this one oh that's hot call that top I'm gonna he's little – from – to cross pork I think I'm gonna start with I think these are the babylon babylon snails or babylon yeah I think so anyways and this is stir-fried in chili and garlic okay let me let me poke it and then pull oh yeah okay that came out nicely okay so the problem is that all the all the seasoning is on the shell but then when I pulled it out it's like a naked a little naked snail so I don't know if I should dip in a sauce okay I'll dip a little bit and then I'm gonna eat it Wow that is it's a little bit on the chewy side but I do like that seasoning seasoning is like a garlic salt garlic salt and chili but in a very good way almost like squid this one is another is another snail and I can see and this one I think is is stood in coconut milk and then it is topped with a handful of Vietnamese mint or Vietnamese coriander we try to find a big one okay here we go any I didn't even know how to eat this but the the kind waiters here have told me that I gotta suck this one cuz I was like trying to poke down here there is nothing to poke I sucked down a bunch of sauce first and then the little snail game like sliding out at the end that almost has like the texture of an oyster and slimy and then that BEC that's like that kind of a sweet coconut milk hurry I think I should chase it I think I should chase it with some Vietnamese mint once you're finished eating these snails you just toss the shell into the garbage below these are scallops and they're just little scallops but they are I think they're grilled face down or shell down and then they are topped with green onions and peanuts so I don't think I've ever had the combination of scallops and peanuts so I am looking forward to this one not sure if you should just go in with your face or eat but anyways I guess I'll I'll go with the fork method first try to scoop on all those peanuts okay yeah all that really works all that really works well and then you're supposed to chase it with the Vietnamese coriander as well and I'm just gonna I think I'm just gonna fight straight into this shell to get up everything out Oh I think there must be some butter on that because it tastes so good that is accomodation scallops and peanuts that I never would have thought of and it doesn't to me it doesn't even sound that good but it's actually is amazing it has that beautiful sweetness from the scallop and then that pea nutty nutty flavor and also the crunchiness from the peanuts that is awesome that's like a scallop with peanut butter amazing I also got a some beef stir-fried with noodles got to get some little bit of a bit of a more filling dish as well and so let me taste that again the beat in Vietnam is so good that's their ride on pop club noodles with some with some like guy Laden Chinese broccoli on there the beef and also I got some morning glory stir-fried I think with just garlic they're back to perfection and fresh and nice and garlicky the time has come to sample the beasts these giant scary-looking snail mollusks and they almost look like they've been like diced up and then some chilli sauce has been like thrown in there I don't even know how to go about eating this but potentially scoop it all out or maybe it's all they sort of cut it into bite-sized pieces maybe perhaps okay I don't know if I should do some crying action some leverage get a little leverage up in there oh there we go oh yeah look at that okay I'm gonna try what this is have the same texture as squid its chewy that's wonderful it has like a sweet kind of a sweet and salty chili sauce on it I like that and that's so meaty oh yeah one more one more big bite [Applause] that might be the best one oh that's wonderful literally I've seen people with these shells like if they're like as a decoration in their house but I think I'll throw this guy out I'm going straight back to those where did my little pork mahal going I'm going in for another I'm gonna squeeze on some lime and then I'm gonna try to add a few more at the end of these Chili's to top it off I think that might make it perfect this might be the best thing I've ever tried all right I'm gonna just slurp this bad boy down oh that's so good now if your hands get too juicy or dirty they always have these like wet wipes readily available on your table and you can always wipe your your mouth and your face you definitely have to like your face after a meal like that there were definitely some snail splatters all around my mouth that was delicious you got to make sure to clean out your teeth at I'm sure I have lots of bits of snail all up in my teeth medallas a truly marvelous meal I especially love scallops with the peanuts a combination that I never would have thought of but it was amazing and then also those giant giant love the giant shells they're also very good nice and chewy but I love the flavor and I also love that that chewy texture of this really everything was very good and this style of dining and socializing and relaxing and and slowly eating is definitely a style of Vietnamese not queasy and that I love and enjoy thank you so much for watching this

After war , I left my war ship and went to North VN . I have my own business . Moneys I make I use to travel in this Earth more than 40 years to search whole truths . In 2011 The New York Times discovered about human in this Earth from 1,000 years ago to now . So I understood why human blood type O hate me . Hate me because I am real human from God created . Real VN we have no one blood type O . VC is not VN . So to find one Vietnamese I could say 1,000 years can't find one . At US real Vietnamese about  few thousands . In VN  must be the same . US is not America . Why ? America or VN in one . We have no one blood type O .

My biggest regret when visiting Ho Chi Minh was not trying the snails until the last night. Could have been eating them every night. Still dream of those snails.

I'm curious. Is the Vietnamese snail dish a remnant from when France had control of Vietnam or is this something different?
