Vietnamese Food - Bo Ne


One of the really great cholesterol-rich treats in Vietnam is Bo Ne.
It is a kind of meat-lovers mixed grill, featuring a small piece of beefsteak, a fried egg and some grilled pate. There are some variations and additions, including a sausage and some fried nem (traditional Vietnamese cured pork), french fries and a big, garlicky rissole. For maximum weight-gain potential, it is served with as many fresh baguette as you can eat.
As you can imagine, it is considered quite a macho dish, and one of the pluses of eating it is that Bo Ne restaurants are often filled with bodybuilders keeping up their condition.
As far as I can see, Bo Ne is still just a Saigon thing - I have received several corrections on this front - apparently Bo Ne is injecting Vietnamese bodies with cholesterol all over the country!
