Eating three types of a Vietnamese delicacy: steamed/boiled snails dipped in a fragrant fish sauce! 🐌🐟🐌🐟 This photo also comes with a funny story. Having only previously eaten one type of snail Vietnamese-style, I was introduced to some new ones today. I was told their names are (direct translation to English) 'village snail', 'city snail' and 'pig snail'. If you don't already know it, Vietnamese people tend to name things practically and (seemingly) straight forward. For instance, village snail = comes from the village side. City snail = comes from the city side.
So you can imagine what I was thinking when I was told one of them was called 'pig snail'. Did it mean they came near pigs somehow? From pigs? Long story short, I learned that pig snail = snails that resemble pigs in their shell shape (and not because they came from or near pigs) 😂
