  • I always like to explore the Hotpot scene wherever I go, so in Saigon Vietnam, I went on a HOTPOT and BBQ tour ate at some local favorites.
    Location 1: Lau de 304
    This local hotpot place is awesome! The broth is DELICIOUS and the goat is not gamey at all. LOVED that goat leg as well.
    Location 2: Saigon Grill
    The passion fruit hotpot broth is insane! I also loved the view from the roof top.
    Location 3: Quan 909
    I was told that I HAD to try some water buffalo while in Vietnam. The meat was leaner than beef and not as flavorful. The broth I loved but the bbq was a bit underwhelming.

    Vietnamese like chewy meats because we chew while drinking beer/liquor, makes the meat and drink taste better.

    You would love how Haitians prepare goat in a dish called griot. I always thought goat was a superior meat cause I’ve only ever had it prepared the way Haitians do and I think everyone should experience it

    I think the "passion fruit" broth was mistranslated and is actually our canh chua which is tamarind based! (it looks like it anyways and the way that you explained it too, how it tastes similar to tom yum and sweet/sour taste). Also the egg fish is soft enough where we usually just eat the bones too! You were right in that Chinese hot pot is more like dipping, but Vietnamese hot pot is definitely meant to drink the broth! It's not good hot pot if it doesn't have good broth :)

    When he said water buffalo I instantly thought of bison(or buffalo) I am native so I grew up eating it and yup it’s is so nummy. Also wonder if he has had elk or deer before. Both of those are really good too.

    Went to lamb hotpot today with hype and excitement, the broth was great but the lamb leg was quite disappointing. It's recommended to just show a picture of what you want as they do not speak English or a English menus

    I’m surprised no one has mentioned this but Mikeee you were supposed to cook those greens in the buffalo hot pot instead of eating it raw and wrapping it with the meat lol. But since you did it i might as well give it a try and see how it tastes 🤣
