Bò 7 món, is Vietnamese seven courses of beef, served at weddings. Bò 7 món is representative of higher-end Vietnamese cuisine.
- Bò nhúng dấm: Raw beef slices cooked in vinegar fondue
- Cháo Bò: Beef congee
- Bò nướng mỡ chài: Grilled beef sausages made from seasoning ground beef wrapped in caul fat casing
- Bò lá lốt: Grilled ground beef wrapped in a La lot leaf
- Bò nướng hành: Grilled beef strips rolled around a piece of scallion
- Bò chả đùm: Steamed ground beef patties served with shrimp chips
- Gỏi bò: Beef salad
The cooked beef portions are then wrapped (by the individual eating it) with rice paper, lettuce, herbs (rau sống), lettuce, cucumbers, and pickle carrots and then dip in Mam Nem sauce.
Mam Nem is chunky sauce, has tasty, sweet and tangy flavor. It is much more pungent in flavor than nuoc cham.
When you go to the Vietnamese restaurant, ask for extra nuoc cham, in case you do not like mam nem.
