A Tet menu from Ho Chi Minh City
I am a Facebook fan of a restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City named XU*, which has posted a special menu for Tet, which begins, depending on the source either on February 3, or today, January 31.
I'm going to call around to see if anyone around here is doing a Tet menu, but here's what Xu is doing.
