We didn’t want you to think that a Vietnam Food-Venture comes without its challenges. Sometimes, the deep-fried frog isn’t quite up to your expectations or the stir-fried rabbit seems a little uninspired. Was that freshwater eel nothing but bones? Bummer. Those trapped in a train for 24 hours might survive on fried guppy and white rice. Escargot fans will discover that Vietnamese snails are a bit flavorless – there’s a reason the French drown them in garlic butter. And that chicken head in black sauce tasted a little like run off from a Chinese herbal shop. Oh well – no pain, no gain.
