Hai Yen in the West Argyle Historic District has plenty of things to choose from on its menu, but the first thing we go for here is the bò 5 món (beef 5 ways). Considered a higher-end dish fit for a celebration, bò 5 món consists of the following: 1) Gỏi bò, a cold salad of shredded papaya and carrot, with beef; 2) Bò nhúng dấm, a fondue-like dish with sliced raw beef dipped into heated sweet vinegar; 3) Bò nướng mỡ chài, grilled sausages of ground beef wrap in caul - a fatty, rich delight - wrapped in rice paper with rice noodles, fresh vegetables and herbs; 4) Bò lá lốt, ground beef sausages wrapped in the lá lốt leaf (known as “wild betel leaf”) and grilled and 5) Bò nướng sả, grilled beef with lemongrass, also eaten in a rice paper wrap.
