STREET FOOD IN CAN THO


CAN THO    1. Sweet & Sour Soup, Braised Catfish (Canh Chua, Cá Kho Tộ) A whole selection of traditional Vietnamese home dishes here at Cẩm Ký restaurant, but we didn’t even bother to look further into the menu when we saw “canh chua & cá kho tộ”. This is by far my favourite Vietnamese dish, very tasty & easy to eat.
