    1. MIẾN LƯƠN BÀ PHẤN: Eel Glass Noodles
    ADDRESS: 999 Trần Hưng Đạo, Thanh bình, Ninh Bình
    OPEN: 4AM - 10:30AM

    Opened in 1973, Miến Lươn Bà Phấn is Ninh Binh’s most famous restaurant serving glass noodle eel soup. The owner, Mrs. Phấn, learned how to make the signature dish from her mother-in-law, who also taught three of her children to cook the dish before her passing. They now have three restaurants in Ninh Binh, selling their famous glass noodle eel soup, a dish adored by locals.

    🍜INGREDIENTS: In a bowl, add glass noodles, eel, vegetables (laksa leaf, betel leaf, scallion, coriander) and fried shallot. Pour in eel broth and enjoy.

    💸PRICE: 1.71 USD/40,000 VND per bowl | 21.45 USD/500,000 VND per kg of eel

    2. MRS. LÁT: Fried Crab + Rice
    ADDRESS: Ninh Hải Primary School

    Mrs. Lát has been a farmer in Ninh Binh for a very long time and is an expert at making this traditional dish. Fried crab with rice is very popular in the countryside of Vietnam. It originated from farmers working in the rice fields without much time to cook. As to not waste resources, they used every ingredient around them to create this simple dish, which has become very special in Vietnam today.

    🦀INGREDIENTS: This special kind of crab can only be found in the months of September and October. Mix crab, lemongrass, fermented rice, pepper, salt, MSG, fish sauce, jungle honey and betel leaves. Serve with cooked rice.

    💸PRICE: 2.57 USD/60,000 VND per kg

    3. MR. TOAN: Eel Salad

    Mr. Toan is a retired chef, having worked in restaurants in Hanoi and Ninh Binh throughout his life. He kindly welcomed us into his home to cook us a classic Ninh Binh delicacy.

    Nhệch is a paddy field eel, used to create this eel salad, a classic dish in the Northern coastal area of Vietnam. The dish requires a lot of skill and time for preparation. People from the region of Kim Son are known for making it best.

    😋PORK: pork fat, shallot, chili, pork, shrimp paste, MSG, sugar, shrimp chili paste and water | SALTWATER EEL: Take the meat off of bone, slice it up, mixing ginger water, ground ginger, minced shallots, seasoning, MSG, fried shallots, lemongrass, lime leaves and frying rice powder | DRESSING: Mix the cooked pork with fermented rice, cashew oil, sugar, MSG and boiled water

    Hey, I’m Sonny! I’m from the US but currently call Vietnam home. I’ve been living in Asia for 10 years and started making food and travel videos to document my experiences. People either enjoyed my undeniable charm or enjoyed watching me eat things like coconut worms, and thus Best Ever Food Review Show came to be.

    I travel to different parts of the world, hunting down and documenting the most unique food each country has to offer. If you see any factual food errors in my videos, please feel free to politely let me know in the comments. I'm a huge fan of trying different, interesting foods in each country. My show is from a Western point of view, but more importantly, MY point of view. It is not meant to offend any person or culture.

      Best Ever Food Review Show Why is MSG added to everything. I understand that it’s a flavor enhancer but more than 3mg per meal can use serious health problems, especially to children and pregnant woman. I think it’s awesome that they cook in there traditional way but is there a substitute?

                                          You came to Ninh Binh? I am from Ninh Binh. I'm so glad to see Vietnamese, especially Nnh Binh's food on your channel. You should also try the goat's rare meat with lime, and "cơm cháy" - kind of like burned rice but crunchy, they're Ninh Binh's specialties.
