This particular dish (snails), a Vietnamese delicacy, is served steamed. It possesses a unique texture and a bland taste on its own. Locals however, are accustomed to a more superior taste bursting with flavor and spice. The dish therefore was served with a sauce containing salt, pepper, lime and chilli (the sauce is being made in this photo)
The shell itself with its patterns initially scared me, but I must say, the actual snail underneath with the sauce was absolutely exquisite. It’s definitely a must try dish in Vietnam!
