More on the home delivery front. This time I got a location to follow up, rather than the usual vague street name or district. This is ‘Dac Biet’ Banh Canh Cua (Thick noodle crab soup). The ‘dac biet’ bit means special and is normally used by stall holders who have ideas above all the other stalls within eyeshot. However, this is slightly different from the last bowl of this we came across at Ben Thanh market. This noodles are still thick, but they’re translucent (that could be the bite in the dac biet bit???). They have a melt in the gob quality to them. They also kinda look like miniature see-thru eels. Like something David Attenborough unearthed way down deep for the ‘Blue Planet’ TV series. You’ll also find your flaky crabmeat, couple of sticks of Vina-spam, mushies, spring onion and all the usual herbal suspects. No chilli in this venture though. Although you will get a side of minced red chilli, sliced yellow chilli and an 8th of a lemon. 10,000VD from 59 Bis Nguyen Thong Street. Worth further inspection I’d say. This was excellent.
