Tan Nam Vietnamese Restaurant, Ho Chi Minh

Tan Nam Vietnamese Restaurant
60 Dong Du, D1

The concierge suggested we try this local haunt which was around the corner from the Caravelle. The single outstanding dish here was the lotus root salad. This is not the usual lotus root but some part of the plant that was soft yet crunchy and had the most interesting texture. It came accompanied with prawn crackers. Quite an interesting mix.

We also tried a local soup - what was evident was that most of the soups had a sour base, fairly similar to Thai soups, only much milder and not spicy.
