Vietnam Snack Food in a Shell

Snails and shell fish offered as street food in Vietnam

A visit to one of the numerous snack restaurants serving the Vietnamese version of tapas opens a window to a remarkable experience combining both food and drink.

While wandering along Ho Chi Minh City’s narrow streets, if you look closely at the trendy and crowded street food “restaurants” you will notice the low key bamboo stalls each offer a different dish of snails. For instance, in Vietnamese cooking, there can be five or seven different ways to cook snails: with tangy tamarind or lemongrass, coconut or chili, sweet or spicy or butter and garlic. Therefore, for each different variety of snails as the main ingredient, and all the different seasonings and methods used to prepare them, the list of specialty snail dishes is long and varied. Each tidbit of taste is different and demands a try.

Eating snails as street food in Vietnam

To complement this seafood swallowing, the famous Hanoi vodka is the local alcohol suggested to accompany Vietnamese snail snacks. This local brew and a plate of snails are a perfect combination and a “must try” of every visitor who wants to experience this very traditional street food menu item in Vietnam.
