The Hanoi Version of Quan An Ngon

We've postponed our trip once, to accommodate Su's schedule. Starting with a joke and it's then turned into a reality as we can claim a free meal from her. Any restaurants that we can choose from, we're recommended with the Quan An Ngon. I agree with the idea completely as I've enjoyed the deliciousness by Ho Chi Minh version of this franchise before.

Some appetisers to start with, we've ordered the "Ha Noi" Crispy Shrimp Cake, Fresh Rice Paper Roll with Shrimp & Pork and Fried Spring Roll stuffed with Crab served with Fresh Herbs & Pork. The Shrimp Cake is more alike cracker for its crispiness. It's served with a sour dipping sauce in order to reduce the oiliness. I like the fresh spring roll without the dipping sauce that is slightly too strong due to the shrimp paste. On the other hand, I don't really like the Hanoi-Style of Fried Spring Roll as the meat is smelly. Besides, it's very oily whereby the fat on the bean curd skin is not dripped off completely.

Su and Phui Yee walk around the stalls inside the Quan An Ngon and they've ordered the Roasted Pork Wrap. I've no clue about its real name in the menu but it's definitely delicious. Each sliced roasted pork is topped onto a piece of rice cake and being garnished with roasted peanuts. The whole stack is to be wrapped into the rice paper together with the fresh herbs before being dipped into the sweet and sour chili sauce. Luckily that the pork meat is not smelly and it's just melting in the mouth, what a tasty dish it is!

Looking to the next table and we've got their help by ordering the Steamed Rice Rolls stuffed with Shrimp & Minced Pork and the Rice Vermicelli Soup with Pig & Shrimp. The rice roll is a little alike our Oriental-Style "Chee Cheong Fun" except that their is topped with grounded dried shrimps to give the saltiness and tastiness while the sauce itself is tasteless. I like the rice roll as it's very refreshing and delicious. The noodle soup is as well very delicious whereby the broth is really thick and sweet naturally. The only complaint is the pig intestine that is smelly as the soup is not hot enough.

The restaurant is filled with a lot of customers, either the locals or the foreigners. Looking to the variety of food that is served here and as well the price, the meal is really worthwhile.
