I showed a picture of the sticky rice and they gave me one that looked delicious. However it looked better than it tasted bit it was still really good. Chicken was a little tough but the rice was warm and tasty.

Soup is salt a bit and the taste is not exact crab. Stick rice and chicken are dry. But you should try stir fry rice with beef and Vietnam "kimchi". I see its good.

Our kids loved the crab rice at this little restaurant. Lucky for us it was close to our hotel so we returned a couple of times. There was no English menu, so we needed to communicate by hand. A good sized serve of crab rice was 50k VND.

The chicken is so tender... we love this place so much. The old lady owner and her niece are so nice and polite to us both. Definitely it's a must come back.

Chu ca is a traditional Vietnamese cuisine with sticky rice and pork. And pork mix with crab meat together and fried and then put above the sticky rice. I thought it is no gonna match but actually it is surprisingly very delicious!

I tried this vendor once, but for me the sticky rice here can not be compared with some other sticky rice vendors in down town as I try once. The other restaurant is bigger and located near my hotel in Old quarter. There are many kind of sticky rice to choose and price is around 1.5 USD depends on types... More
