Dong Thinh Nha Hang Mien Luon

Don't let the thought of fried eels put you off trying this delicious local dish.

The eel in mien luon is cut into thin strips and deep fried in a light batter -- it could really be almost anything. Mien is a type of noodle made from arrowroot or canna root and is quite distinctive from pho, bun and my noodles.

Although all the dishes are mien and eel, here you can get it in a few different formats, for example, wet, dry and in soup.

Similar in style to Bun Bo Nam Bo -- insomuch as it's crowded and grubby -- it's worth a visit for the ambience as well as the food.
