Đậu hũ chiên sả ớt – Chili Fried Tofu Lemongrass

Sometimes you may find yourself with friends in a vietnamese restaurant that seems to have NOTHING meatless.  If you find yourself in such a situation (if they don’t have even salads or vegetable side-dishes), you may want to get some white rice and Đậu hũ chiên sả ớt.   This means Fried Tofu with Lemongrass and Chili.  I really liked this, and it was one of the most inexpensive choices on the menu.  The only downside is that you may get tired of the taste by the end  – the taste is exotic, unique, strong (but not spicy on its own).  I suggest you share this dish with others and try to find some other things to eat along with it like white rice, water spinach,  or even beer-nuts. 😉

This Đậu hũ chiên sả ớt was from a canal-side garden restaurant/beer-hall on Tôn Thất Thuyết Street on the south border of district 4 (near the intersection with Tôn Đản Street).
