Eating Vietnam: On the Snail Trail in Vung Tau!

Matt hits the streets of Vung Tau on a trail for some ốc after he gets a tip-off from a local that a lady cooking them up under a tree on a quiet neighbourhood street corner just a few hundred metres from the beach might just be the best in town.

When he finds out just how good they are, he returns the next day with his pal Mr Dinh from nearby Coco Homestay who’s never heard of the place before and what Matt introduces to him is downright juicy and tasty!
