My all time favourite dish is Canh Chua (sour soup). It’s what you’d have at home usually with fried fish for contrast.
Canh chua is basically a sour soup from tamarind, pineapple and tomato. Then there’s just too many Vietnamese mints added to name, bac ha, chilli, been sprouts, garlic and choice of meats; usually fish or prawns are popular but you can have it with chicken.
This dish is from Phuoc Loc Tho in Canley Heights… all the ingredients are raw, including the fish. The soup is in the centre and will come to biil from coal underneath… once it’s boiling you just push all the ingredients into the soup stock in the centre and enjoy!
