Yah De Yah

While Vietnam doesn't play ball in the same league as neighboring Thailand, Malaysia or India when it comes to creativity and selection of curries, they still bat a respectable .270 and display the ability to come through with the clutch sacrifice squeeze. Tonight I was just looking to move the runners so in stepped pinch hitter Cà Ri Dê (Goat Curry).

Here's a well known spot [ Cà ri dê Musa ] couple fellow food enthusiast Vietnamese teachers introduced me to down in district 5 in an alley off Sư Vạn Hạnh near Hùng Vương. The menu is large but make no mistake, peeps flock for the GoAt.

This back alley joint gets continually more jam-packed with hungry Vietnamese of all kinds as the stew cooks deeper into the night- resulting in even softer goat muscles fibers.

A bowl of juicy and super tender goat served straight up without the usual veggies and herbs. Meat-Sauce-Mouth. Dunk some bread in that spiced up stew and expedite the digestive process with an icy one.

Now you got a bit of in you. Ladies, watch out.

Stay Billy.

Bạn học trên đường, với bạn Việt của mình. Phong cách địa phương! Bạn thích học từ tiếng lóng. Vui lắm!

I just sort of picked it up and learned from a variety of folks over my time here.
