Change things up with a delicious dish made from large melongena patula


If you're tired of the usual seafood dishes at street-side snail eateries, you should consider changing your dining spot to Bui Vien Street and trying out the Banana Flower Salad with Large Melongena Patula - a creative and innovative variation prepared by our chef!

Origin and characteristics of the melongena patula


Melongena patula belongs to the category of mollusks and is commonly found in tropical ocean regions. They typically inhabit areas at depths of 10 to 20 meters, often near coral reefs. In Vietnam, they flourish and thrive in coastal regions such as Phu Quoc, Phan Thiet, Khanh Hoa, and can also be found in well-known seafood restaurants.


Melongena patula have distinctive visual features. They are characterized by their deep red and rough shells, with protruding nodules on each spiral layer. The closer to the body, the coarser these nodules become. The shell of the melongena patula has a sharp spiral pattern, it's thick and heavy. Additionally, the meat of this sea creature is incredibly attractive due to its deep red color. It contains various nutrients like calcium, protein, zinc, iron, and different types of vitamins.


Selecting good quality large melongena patula

At reputable seafood restaurants, melongena patula are served as a delicious and nutritious dish. The snails are considered good quality when they are fresh and have a moderate size, not too large or too small. They should have no unpleasant odor, firm flesh, be held firmly, and not hollow. Especially at the Sen - Lua - Bien - Oc Dai Viet restaurant chain, large melongena patula are carefully selected for their size, meatiness, and are freshly imported daily. This ensures that the snails are not weakened and guarantees the quality when they reach the customers' tables.


Delicious dish made from large melongena patula: Large Melongena Patula and Banana Flower Salad


As a highly nutritious seafood, large melongena patula can be prepared into various delicious dishes. Sen - Lua - Bien - Oc Dai Viet restaurant, a trusted seafood establishment, proudly introduces the Large Melongena Patula and Banana Flower Salad to esteemed diners. This dish represents a creative twist on this sea creature.


Before being prepared, red snails must be soaked in clean water and washed several times. Especially for dishes like salads, the snails need to be parboiled to eliminate potential germs and parasites. Banana flower has been a staple in Vietnamese cuisine. Banana Flower Salad is a rustic and unique dish, though not everyone knows how to prepare it.


After thinly slicing the banana flower into bite-sized pieces, it should be immediately placed in iced water that has been mixed with lemon juice or vinegar. The acidity from the lemon and vinegar helps remove the resin from the banana flower, making it more crunchy and preventing discoloration. In addition to the banana flower, this salad becomes even more delicious with the addition of carrots, onions, red chili, and fresh herbs. The salad dressing should be well-balanced, with the right level of sweetness and tanginess for the dish to achieve its desired flavor. Our reputable seafood restaurant on Bui Vien Street is confident in achieving this.

The tender, chewy sweetness of the snail meat pairs perfectly with the crispiness of fresh banana blossom and the heat of red chili. Adding a bit of Vietnamese coriander enhances the overall appeal. Moreover, roasted peanuts and fried garlic contribute to elevating the dish's taste, creating a harmonious balance of sour, spicy, fragrant, and sweet flavors. Ideal as an appetizer or as an accompaniment to beer, this dish is loved and frequently chosen by diners at the renowned seafood restaurant on Bui Vien Street.


Our restaurant chain, known for its credibility in serving seafood, is pleased to welcome all diners to enjoy a meal and experience the delightful offerings on Bui Vien Street.
