Fresh shredded green mango salad with scallops, mint leaves, and cashew nuts, served in a sweet vinaigrette dressing.
Deep fried Hanoi style spring rolls with shrimp pork vermicelli, and vegetables, served with a side of sweet and sour fish sauce, and red chilies.
King Crab meat and spinach in a light seafood-based broth.
Grilled cod fish "cha ca" [Vietnamese fishcake.]
Roasted Wagyu beef medallions with foie gras, and a semi-sweet fermented black rice sauce.
Sauted "su su" vegetables with garlic [chayote stems and leaves.]
