Vietnam Day 6 (Part 2): White Rose Restaurant - Hoi An. Lo Banh Bao Banh Vac


What the hype about this restaurant which famous with their 2 menus?  Wait a second, but that's what they serve, 2 food only.  With only two food in the house, of course it has to be good.  The 2 menus are white rose dumpling (as named of the restaurant as well) and fried wonton (Hoi An pizza).  The steamed dumpling is the original recipe since third generation ago.  The shrimp filling was tasty wrapped in translucent dough.  Similar like har gow, but this one is more special with deep-fried shallot sprinkled on top.  The name is white rose dumpling, not because there is rose filling in there, but they lay out together and shaped like a rose.

White Rose Dumpling 70,000VND

Fried wonton - Hoi An pizza 100,000VND
For me, this fried wonton or what they called Hoi An pizza is a better dish than the rose dumpling.  It was like eating a seafood- Hawaiian pizza with a super crunchy base.  It was a great combination of flavor with sweet sour came from pineapple and tomatoes, then the choice of shrimps instead of any meat made it light and fresh.  The wonton skin-base was so thin and crunchy.  It was completely a flawless dish.  Definitely a must try dish while you were in Hoi An.

Back again to Ho Chi Minh the next day, before we were heading to Phnom Penh.  And we made a short stop for lunch at one of the famous restaurant according to our local friend.  Quan An Ngon is a huge restaurant serving local Vietnamese delicacies.  It was a slightly pricey compared with any street food out there.  However, you guarantee getting the clean tasty dish with a big portion size as well.  So, it definitely worth the money spent.
