Hanoi has many famous shrimp and bean soup restaurants, a simple reason because this popular dish is satisfied by many customers. Shrimp seasoning is suitable and special, in the hot summer season, the shrimp and bean paste vermicelli is the first choice of the office people, who are often invited to eat “spirit”.
The vermicelli and prawn bean paste restaurant at the beginning of Phan Phu Tien street is probably one of the most crowded noodle shops in Hanoi. The shop only sells at noon and if the guests are out at 12 o’clock, they may have to wait a long time to have a table. But there are so many customers, long wait time, the customers are still patient because of the attraction from the fragrant golden beans that are “dancing” in hot fat pan.
The restaurant is always very crowded, but the owner never ready to cook it because she said: ‘The beans are fried first, and the guests come to eat it. Only when guests call me fry beans and depending on the request of guests to eat old beans or young beans, I will fry as required. The beans have to be hot and crispy, and the fat is so dry that the customers can eat fried beans without feeling sick. This bean must be placed from Mai Dong village. White, soft, fatty beans, when deep-fried, will swell and create a delicious appetite for people to eat. ”
