The French colonial period (1887-1954) brought enormous change to every aspect of life in Vietnam, especially where cuisine was concerned. The French introduced the Vietnamese to an infinite variety of ingredients and western inspired foods. In turn, these were adapted to suite the Vietnamese palate and today have become some of the most the most iconic dishes in the country. Take, for example, Vietnamese Beef Steak on a hot pan. This is the modern Vietnamese version of a western originated steak dish served with sliced marinated beef, French fries, fried egg or omelet, meatballs, pate and banh my (baguette). This dish, a street food favorite particularly in central and southern regions, is known as “bo bit tet”. “Bo” means beef and “bit tet” the ‘Vietnamized pronunciation’ of beefsteak.
At Red Bean Hoi An we transform this favorite beef dish into a great lunch or dinner meal using quality 180gram beef steak from the US, topped with our Chef’s special sauce. It is a classic combination of beef, eggs and vegetables served on a sizzling hot pan together with a Vietnamese baguette to soak up the delicious sauce. The hot plate version is referred to as ‘bo ne’, which indicates that the hot oil spits out of the pan while the ingredients cook.
