I have uploaded some of the photos from Vietnam to Flickr. Here is the link to the set.
OTHER MONKEYS SAID
what is tortoise like?
Absolutely horrible, well the smell of the burning shell was anyway. I only nibbled on some of the eggs - the other guys were eating the intestine and the liver (which tasted like liver I am sure) etc. There's hardly any "meat" as in muscle tissue.
I forgot what this dish is called in Vietnamese-- if I recall, the name's equally as unappealing as it actually looks.
Is it some peranakan specialty too?
The eggs were salty, chalky, basically overcooked yolks.
