Why Thanh restaurant (Cao Lau) is special ?

If you are looking for local taste and local price, you should go to Thanh Cao Lau (24 Thai Phien St). Price: 25,000 VND. Open hour: All day but they will close very soon in the noon and night if the ingredient is over.

Cao lau noodles are carefully made from local fresh rice (not older grains of rice). The dish cannot be replicated outside of the town because the water used in the dish must be drawn from a well in the nearby Ba Le well, which is at the end of an alley opposite 35 Phan Chau Trinh Street. The noodles will therefore be soft, enduring and flavored with special sweet-smelling additives. In addition, the meat used to prepare the Cao lau must be pork loin or trotter. The pork is fried in a marinade and then roasted for 1 hour. Next, fish sauce, soy sauce, garlic, sugar, salt & pepper, thin crispy croutons, vegetables, bean sprouts and spices are thrown in, and after adding the noodles and herbs the dish is done. With a hint of spice, simple and yummy.
