Opened in 1973, Miến Lươn Bà Phấn is Ninh Binh’s most famous restaurant serving glass noodle eel soup. The owner, Mrs. Phấn, learned how to make the signature dish from her mother-in-law, who also taught three of her children to cook the dish before her passing. They now have three restaurants in Ninh Binh, selling their famous glass noodle eel soup, a dish adored by locals.

Hey, I’m Sonny! I’m from the US but currently call Vietnam home. I’ve been living in Asia for 10 years and started making food and travel videos to document my experiences. People either enjoyed my undeniable charm or enjoyed watching me eat things like coconut worms, and thus Best Ever Food Review Show came to be.

I travel to different parts of the world, hunting down and documenting the most unique food each country has to offer. If you see any factual food errors in my videos, please feel free to politely let me know in the comments. I’m a huge fan of trying different, interesting foods in each country. My show is from a Western point of view, but more importantly, MY point of view. It is not meant to offend any person or culture.

Don’t forget to subscribe to Best Ever Food Review Show, so we can connect through food and travel and become Bestys!

  1. Try the Filipino food called "ADOBO". You already tried some exotic food of the Philippines, the "Balut" and their famous delicacy "Lechon" from your previous videos.

  2. You came to Ninh Binh? I am from Ninh Binh. I'm so glad to see Vietnamese, especially Nnh Binh's food on your channel. You should also try the goat's rare meat with lime, and "cơm cháy" – kind of like burned rice but crunchy, they're Ninh Binh's specialties.

  3. Fun fact, the alcohol you drink with the eel noodles it's a japanese thing called umeshu (sake made with ume, a japanese plum like fruit), in fact the label it's in japanese XD
