Deaf and Mute Mr Lac Thanh setup this place that sells traditional Vietnamese local home-cook dishes. The eating place was not the cleanest or coziest in Hue but food was amazingly good and comforting.
Order was taken using sign language and the friendly Mr Lac showed a trick or two demonstrating to us how to open the beer bottles using his wooden opener which he later gave to us as souvenir.
On the dining table, there were stacks of rice paper and unlimited supply of fresh greens and various kind of herbs like mint, corianders, laksa leaves that were used to wrap the pork satay or the pancake that we ordered.
Dip the wrap into the homemade peanut sauce. The taste was heavenly - balance of hot yummy meat and crispy pancake with fresh crunchy greens enhanced with the flavour of the herbs and the sweetness of the sauce.
I could not remember how many plates of the meat skewers or pancakes that we ordered in total but should be in the region of 15-20. This was easily the best meal we had in Hue. Highly recommended.
