Welcome to the first episode of Random eats!
For each post in this series, there will be quick reviews of several random dishes. Sometimes I just don't feel like writing one whole post for only one dish... but leaving it out is such a waste. Random eats is created to record such food treats.
So, let's see what's in store in this first episode of Random eats.
1. Cơm tấm gà chiêm mắm- Broken rice with fried chicken (~50k)
I took the above above photo and intended to write about the dish in December 2010! Not sure how it's not on the blog yet, probably due to the restaurant's inconsistency, and the fact that it's opposite an excellent cơm tấm place. Anyhow, still interesting to freshen up the normal broken rice dish with gà chiên mắm instead of grilled pork chop. The restaurant serves a wide range of other proteins with broken rice. Nice, clean and polite place.
Where: Cơm tấm Nam Cali, 72 Trần Quốc Toản
2. Cơm chay thập cẩm - Mixed vegetarian rice (~15k)
Read a very interesting guest post about quán chay (vegetarian restaurants) here. It's the author of that post who brought me to another quán chay where I had one of the best vegetarian rice dishes (photo above). Although he didn't bother to write another post about vegetarian restaurants, I personally liked this place a lot. Highly recommend the mixed vegetarian rice dish (cơm chay thập cẩm).
Where: Quán chay Bình Minh - 118 Triệu Nữ Vương
3. Spaghetti hải sản - Seafood spaghetti (~100k)
Where: Pizza Hug - 45 Trần Phú
