Wonderful places deserve to be visited again and again. And so, with that in mind Tony returns to his favorite place in the world: Vietnam. We all have a spot on this earth that we feel is our own. A place that we feel welcome and comfortable as well as intrigued by. Mine is both Paris and the Loire Valley, but Tony has always held Vietnam as “A place of peaks and valleys and mist and spirits.” – very poetic coming from Mr. Bourdain.
This time around Tony finds himself in the always moving city of Hanoi as well as the Central Highlands. Once again with his friend and former sidekick Linh in Da Lat, the two take on one of Tony’s favorites and the regional specialty. Duck. Opening onto the street (with a single light bulb) they visit a restaurant with a menu that looks AMAZING – a crispy rice cake topped with a spicy cole-slaw type salad and boiled duck and rice porridge made with duck liver and blood.
Hey, you know where I’ll be on Monday, March 29th, at 10 E/P.
