The cook grinds meat, garlic, sugar, fish sauce, and spices into a paste. The paste is shaped into round pieces around bamboo sticks and grilled on charcoal. There needs to be fat in the paste to make the pork greasy and soft. To balance the grease, the restaurant offers sour pickles, fresh greens and a unique dipping sauce made from pork bone broth and ground soybean paste, fish sauce and sesame. A serving costs VND45,000 ($2).

Da Chien beef hotpot

The restaurant is located on Quang Trung Street on Da Chien hill on the way from Da Lat's center to Cau Dat tea hill, a popular destination. So most customers here are tourists.
