Banh Mi Nam Son’s ostrich meat worth a try

By Derek Milroy in HCMC

Being a foreigner in Vietnam, it never ceases to amaze me that there is always some new animal to try at the dinner table, well plastic stool and fragile-looking thin metal-ish table that is.

After a scope around the city’s eateries we decided to head on down to a place a friend had mentioned was a rare treat.

So we arrived at Banh Mi Nam Son in Nguyen Thi Minh Khai in District 3 with Ostrich da dieu (ostrich meat) the order of the day. I think the attitude to have in Asia, is try anything once.

When they brought out a little tray of potato chips with some banh mi, which is a starter of sorts I suppose, I knew we were onto a winner. Next they served us two little hot trays, one with a fried egg and a delicious, tender steak.

The other I assumed was Australian beef with salad but apparently both were ostrich and melt in the mouth delicious. We also had a dish of Canadian beef which also went down well with our group, some of whom are food snobs but even they had to admit the merits of this eaterie tucked-away eaterie on the ever-busy NTMK street.

The standard dishes for this eaterie were class and hit the spot after a day at the office and the price was very reasonable with locals and visitors alike enjoying the fare on offer whilst we were there. Service was quick and if you are looking for an in and out trip for some food head along to Banh Mi Nam Son, which is located at 200 bis Nguyen Thi Minh Khai, District 3.
