Equally good for breakfast or as a hangover cure, Xoi Yen specialises in sticky rice topped with goodies, including sweet Asian sausage, gooey fried egg and slow-cooked pork.
Delicious local food for cheap. Known for sticky rice with mung bean paste and fried shallots. Can add on chicken, pork, pate, etc. Pretty busy all day and filled with locals. English menu available.
Ask for a menu and you can point to the toppings you want. Lap seong and chicken make a good combo, plus the various porks/pate with egg. Wash it down with soy milk!
Get the sticky rice! Pick your toppings or go plain. The fried shallots & garlic on top seal the deal. Dirt cheap too (two of us are for 42,000VND). Don't let the bowl size fool you - very filling!
May be the shop next to the original corner Xoi Yen that closed down, but IMHO still tastes as good. Love the shredded chicken, mung beans with yellow glutinous rice combo.
It's located at the center of the Old Quarter. It's always full btw. Most of the dishes are served with sticky rice and meat on top. Then, you can choose any toppings that you want to add
So delicious! We asked one of the girls from the hotel staff what she liked to eat and Xoi Yen was her first answer. So glad we asked! My favorite is sticky rice with chicken, crispy onion and corn!
50k for a full bowl of sticky rice (xoi xeo - which is green bean sticky + green bean mash) with mixes meat. delicious. very friendly staff, good service.
Not sure if this is the bootleg version which I visited but xoi yen was really a tasty Vietnam dish. Goes a long mile on your tummy with those starchy corn base and meat toppings.
Real local. Sticky rice cooked with chicken fat, topped with mung bean pasted and toppings you like. Cheap, filling up and yummy
Sticky rice restaurant where you can pick what do you want to eat with it like red Chinese sausages, chicken, French pâté. Try the yellow sticky rice with dried onions & any toppings + soy milk.
