5 Oysters, HCMC

We were looking for a good place to eat for our final meal in Ho Chi Minh City, and we settled on the 5 Oysters restaurant at Bui Vien. Thankfully, our experience here matched the generally positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Prices were reasonable and well worth it considering the quality of the food. 
Summary:

Bo Nuong La Lot, Vietnamese Grilled Beef with Wild Betel Leaf, VND80,000 (Rating 8/10) – This was more tasty and authentic that what the version we had at the Royal Saigon Restaurant!

Goi Cuon, Fresh Spring Rolls with Shrimp and Pork, VND40,000 for 5 pieces (Rating 7/10) – These were the best fresh spring rolls we had during this trip, and we were so happy we ordered a second plate. However, in our previous trips we have tasted better. 

Chim Cut Chien Bo, Fried Quails with Butter, VND70,000 (Rating 8/10) – This was delicious, especially the sauce and the veggies. The quails were good but a little on the tough side though and were not easy to chew. 

Hau Nuong Pho Mai, Grilled Oyster with Cheese, VND30,000 per oyster (Rating 8/10) – Oysters were reasonably fresh and well grilled. Cheese was grilled just nice, not over or under-done.
