  • Hey what's up guys, it's Cory here. Today we're in Hai Phong, a port city

  • located 90km east of Hanoi.

  • It's the 3rd most populous city in Vietnam.

  • We're going to have an awesome seafood lunch at a restaurant tucked away in a really small alley.

  • Here's the alley full of people eating, and right here's the restaurant where you order.

  • And as you can see, just motorcycles going right by you as you eat.

  • But check this out.

  • There's a wide variety of snails, clams, and other seafood goodies to choose from.

  • First, you place your order with the staff and they begin to cook up the dishes right away.

  • The fresh seafood and reasonable prices make this place very busy every single day.

  • We ended up ordering 5 different dishes to try.

  • These are rock crab claws cooked in a tamarind and plum sauce.

  • Here's a claw that's been cracked open. You can see the nice fat meat sticking in there.

  • Going to suck the meat out.

  • So much meat in these claws.

  • It's very messy, but it's fun. And it tastes really, really good!

  • Alright, so we got some Oc Len, this is kind of like a spiral snail here.

  • And let me show you how to eat this, we have some wire cutters here.

  • And we're going to snip off the tip.

  • So there's a hole. And then, we dip it in this sauce.

  • Then you suck the snail out from the big hole. So the air goes in the small hole

  • and then comes out the big hole.

  • It's as easy as that!

  • Let's try to suck out more of these spiral snails.

  • It's fun!

  • There's a little bitter taste to that one, but with the sauce it counteracts that bitterness.

  • These are kind of like a little developed quail egg.

  • So you can see it's similar to the bigger one, the duck egg that I ate in the Hoi An video.

  • But these are smaller, you can see that it fits on a spoon like this.

  • And you can see it's got what looks like an eyeball in there.

  • That's partially developed.

  • But it's also got some other stuff here, there's some cripsy shallots on top.

  • I'm going to eat the whole thing.

  • Wow.

  • Mmmm!

  • That's like some kind of ginger sauce.

  • It's weird because I feel like I'm eating an egg, but it's also very meaty, so I'm like

  • "Am I eating a piece of chicken?"

  • It's a very interesting texture, but the flavor is really nice.

  • Alright so our 4th dish came out. It's these snails right there.

  • We're kind of almost already done with the crab claws.

  • Still making our way through the spiral snails.

  • Haven't touched the oysters on ice yet.

  • This is Nước chấm dipping sauce. And I've added some red chilies and a bunch of minced ginger.

  • So this is going to be what we use to dip the snails over here.

  • So we got this little pointy device to help pull out the snail.

  • As you can see, it comes right out like that.

  • And then you dip it in the sauce.

  • And enjoy.

  • Let's go ahead and pull this one out.

  • Ohhhh yeah!

  • Look at that!

  • And we dip it into this sauce. hahahaha

  • Yummy!

  • Wow, that's got some kick!

  • I added a lot of chili peppers to my dipping sauce, very spicy!

  • But it goes really well with the ginger!

  • I like that a lot!

  • Yeah, let's go for this oyster here.

  • Let's get some lime on that.

  • Just a little. Whoops. Got some seed on there.

  • Pull that seed out. Bye seed!

  • And now we're going to put some chili on there.

  • Some chili sauce.

  • Oh oh oh!

  • Looks good!

  • Ok, you guys know that whenever there's a chance to have raw oysters, I always take it.

  • I love raw oysters!

  • Let's go!

  • Mmmm!

  • Wow!

  • That's some of the freshest oysters I've had in Vietnam, hands down.

  • One good turn deserves another. Here we go! Another oyster!

  • Mmmm!

  • Oh so creamy and silky smooth.

  • That was a meaty one too!

  • Since this is really messy, they actually have a cleaning station. Let me show you real quick.

  • So right here they have this little faucet to wash your hands, which is totally cool.

  • But then this, this little bucket here.

  • You can see there.

  • This little bucket, on the inside, it has this like warm brothy thing.

  • And it smells kind of sweet like ginger or tea or something, I don't know.

  • But you dip your hands in it after you wash so they don't smell like seafood.

  • Isn't that cool?

  • If you guys are looking to eat here, I have the address down below in the description box.

  • Check it out, come here, they're super friendly!

  • Alright guys, it's rapidly approaching night time so I'm going to go ahead and wrap this up.

  • Thanks for watching!! And I'll see you guys in the next video, bye!!!

Hey what's up guys, it's Cory here. Today we're in Hai Phong, a port city
