This is crabs, which are just caught from the sea.
This morning, they are living in the sea but now, they've been killed.
They lie still.
We have to put them into plastic bags beforekilling them, because they're aggressive.
They are wild crabs.
Cultured crabs can be less aggressive.
If wild crab is not tied up, it will nip me if I open the bag.
So I have to kill it.
Put them into plastic bag then kill.
And I will steam them.
This time I came to Ha Tien City, I captured a beautiful scene that fishermen go to the sea to catch seafood, return and sell fresh seafood in the market.
They've just returned from a fishing trip, so fish and prawn are really from the sea.
They live in the nature.
They will be definitely more deliciousthan cultured fish and prawn.
Look at this crab! It's really big.
2 kilograms for 3 crabs.
2 kilograms and no string included.
The crab was from the fishing boat and sold to crab seller and the seller sold me at 250.
000 VND per kiloand there is no string included.
This is 1.
I will steam it now.
Put it like this so it won't be dehydrated.
Put the cover on.
See you in 15 minutes.
After 20 minutes, it is ready to served.
Look at this! It's really good.
Look at this! Isn't it delicious? It's really good.
It's just came out of the pot.
I will eat a claw first.
This is a crab claw.
Or I will eat a leg.
I'll take a claw.
It looks delicious.
I'll start with this claw.
This is a claw.
What is a claw?It's the strongest part of a crab.
Especially of a male crab.
Male crab fights.
and catch prey with its claws.
It lives by its claws.
It nip a prey andgrab it to the mouth to eat.
Crab nips the prey to die and eat it.
If you want to eat a crab claw, which is the strongest part of a crab, you have to have strength.
You need strength to eat crab claw.
Crack it little by little.
Crack it little by little.
Do it little by little.
You're done, crab.
Look at this.
It's smoking hot.
It smells so good.
It's really sweet.
Crab meat is flavorful and sweet.
I feel like its flavor brings the sea here.
It's really delicious, flavorful and sweet.
Because it's not a cultured crab.
Although cultured crab is fed withwild food, it's still cultured crab.
This is a wild crab, which is caught from the sea.
One hour ago, it was in the sea.
But now, it's on my plate.
Isn't it fantastic? It's so delicious and has good smell.
It's been ages since the last timeI ate such a delicious wild crab.
It's too much delicious.
Open the crab like this.
It's so good.
Can you see it? This is crab roe.
It's greasy and flavorful.
I love it.
I'll eat the meat in the body.
It's so good.
This crab weighs about 700-800 grams.
I can't eat it all.
The meat is really firm.
This is the crab leg.
This crab is firm.
This is wild crab.
Today is not a full moon day, so the crab meat is firm.
On full moon day, crab meat is not firm.
Crab meat is not firm on full moon day.
This crab is delicious because firstly, it's wild secondly, it's big and thirstly, it's male.
It's so delicious.
So, when you come to Ha Tien City, must-try dishes are fresh seafood like this.
They were caught andbrought to the shore by boat.
I bought it when the boat came.
I took it, steamed and ate it right away.
It's the best dishes in the world.
Welcome to 'When men cook'.
When men cook, it will be a disaster.
We will mess everything up.
Today, I'm pleasured to be in the kitchen of River Hotel in Ha Tien City.
It's a big hotel.
Next to me is Mr.
I introduced him to you.
He is Vietnamese, who lived in France and came back to Vietnam, he invested in this hotel.
He is one of the owners of River Hotel.
Today, I make him to bein this kitchen with me to instruct me and you how to cook special dishes of Ha Tien City.
Chanh, let's start.
I locked the chef out there.
He is the chef today.
I want you to be here with me to introduce Ha Tien City's special food and show me your cooking skills.
You work in hospitality, so youmust know well about cooking, right? Yes.
I know it to managethe restaurant and hotel.
I will let you know.
In France, he often cooks Western food but today I challenge himto cook Vietnamese food.
Chanh, what is the first thingyou will introduce today? What is this? It's crawling.
It's mantis shrimp.
– Mantis shrimp?- Right.
I've bought mantis shrimpin Ha Tien market.
They've just caught it out of the sea and brought on land in about half an hour But they're still alive.
What did you put inside them that make those mantis shrimp move? – What did you put?- Cause they're still alive.
But you didn't put anything on them.
– Or did you pour salt on them.
– No, no, no! They're all fresh like this? I haven't done anything! I just thoroughly washed them.
Then i put them on this dish.
So for the mantis shrimp dish today, what are we gonna do first? According to your request, we will make a dish.
Called Fried mantis shrimp with Fish sauce.
Fried mantis shrimp with Fish sauce.
I've just heard about mantis shrimp with Mantis shrimp with garlic and salt or Fried Mantis shrimp with garlic and chilli.
So we're will fried it with fish sauce, oke, let's do it! I know this one.
This one is herring, right? Yes, this one is Herring Salad.
I will cook this first.
Herring and Herring Salad is a cuisine dish of Kiên Giang Province.
If you tell it from Phú Quốc Island, it's right too.
Or Rạch Giá city, or Hà Tiên city.
Kiên Giang Beach has a lot of Herrings.
But this one is new.
What is this? This one is Lingula sauce.
This is a sauce made from “Lingula”, it's the first time i heard about this name.
This one's very good.
Please try it once! – Can i eat?- Of course! Eat! Just it, this one is very delicious.
– What is this?- It comes from the fish.
Its tail? – Its tail!- Oh, really? It is the tail!It's very crispy! So you want me to eat it first! That's right! You should eat the fish's tail, it's good for your health! Oke, let me try! – Gosh, it's crunchy!- Yes, it is! It tastes like white radish.
That's right! So good! Flavorful! What kind of this fish? This is gudgeon fish.
Gudgeon fish! I did order the staff to make them beforehand just in case the preparation would take too long.
But they're all fresh, right? Absolutely fresh! This is Scallop Cone? Yeah, it's for fried Scallop Cone with garlic later we're going to make later.
Scallop? So fried Scallop Cone with garlic! Oke! First, let's make Mantis Shrimp dish first! Fried with the sauce.
Now, to make the Fried Mantis Shrimp become more delicious.
We will fried the shrimps first! I'll boil the oil! After boiling it, Now, the shrimps are still alive and they will flip.
You must cover the pot.
Use it like a shield, everyone! Cool, cool! Wow, they jumped.
Cool, huh? Stir them over so all of the shrimps will be cooked.
So they will be burned a little on their skin.
Oh, and all will be cooked, right? Yes, they will! After that, we will bring the shrimps out.
And add fish sauce, chilli pepper and garlic, that's when i fried them together.
But according to your experience, how long it takes to get those mantis shrimps perfectly cooked? They are seafood, just 10-15 minutes and the cook will be done.
Till 10-15 minutes? If we want it to be crispy, it will take 10-15 minutes.
But if you want it to be soft, about.
I think this kind of fish can be eaten raw, right? That's why i only want it to get burned a little on the skin and to smell good.
If you cook them so long, i think they will get dried by the time you finish cooking.
Oke! Adjust to stronger flame! That's it! That's what i think! We accelerate our cooking process.
Do they look alright? So tasty! They're slightly burned and properly cooked.
Now, as a fried mantis shrimp with fish sauce dish, we will begin the most important part.
– It is making fish sauce, right?- Of course! – What is the recipe?- It's simple, each spoon of fish sauce equal to each spoon of sugar and balance the amount.
Now, i will put in 3 spoons of fish sauce.
See, 3 spoons of fish sauce.
Now, put in 3 spoons of sugar.
Don't use any other spices apart from them.
2, 3! Oke? Chilli pepper, get about.
1 spoon of chilli pepper.
Because you can put them into the food, but don't use the chilli.
That's it! Let's mix them together! Stir them thoroughly! Because if we put the chilli pepper inside, the taste will be better and the kid can handle this sauce too.
See?So skillful! – It's done!- Never look down on a man! I will put them aside! So the sauce making process is done.
Thiên, do we have garlic? – We will put them later!- Oh, later, when we're frying the dish! We have to make the garlic burn a little! After frying them, we will pour the sauce.
Oke! After that, we will flip the pan and stuff.
Sauce, garlic and chilli.
Do you want to add a little of chilli powder inside? I think you should! So the dish will be much more savory!Also we don't have any kid here today! Add some chilli powder! – So they will smell good!- So the sauce will kick in! Make it more tastier than ever! This person told to add a little and he just wholeheartedly put so much chilli inside.
After it gave off good smell and turn to yellow color, we will pour the sauce.
It turned yellow! Looking good! Beautifully yellow! Help me stirring the food while i'm pouring the sauce.
Steadily stir the contents! Stir them! Flip them over! Smell so freaking good! Now we wait till the sauce get absorb to the shrimps.
Because we put sugar in the sauce, strong fire will burn the shrimp.
Chánh is very clever.
He know the sauce has sugar, that's why he always raise the pan when the fire closely reach its bottom.
Or it will be bitterly burned! I think the shrimps have absorbed all of the sauce.
Beautiful!Let's arrange them on the dish! First dish has been done! So good! If you want to have a perfect smelt-whiting fish stew, this is a special dish of Hà Tiên.
Its flesh is very chewy and hard.
If you want the stew to smell less fishy, you have to use bacon.
So they can change the stew taste and make them more savory.
Half kg of available smelt-whiting fish.
There's only 300 grams left.
– And 300 grams of bacon.
– So they have the same amount.
Yeah it's 1:1.
We have to mince the bacon.
Cut them into pieces.
And when we cooked them with fishsauce bowl, always use fresh coconut.
Fresh coconut! It's make the taste much sweeter! Here is coconut! Also we need garlic and onion.
Of course, fish sauce and sugar.
Do we use caramel-based liquid too? Yes, it's a must! – Oke!- This caramel-based liquid is also made from coconut and sugar.
It's made beforehand.
The red color is really beautiful! It has puce color! You have to skilled to make it or else it will be bitterly burned.
Stir them so they will get stick to each other.
Switch to the even mode of flame right? So the fat will be melted down? So the fat will be melted! 1 spoon of garlic, oke? 1 spoon of onion! The juice of onion will sweeten the liquid.
Remember never stir the fish, just shake the pan evenly! Or it will ve crushed.
Oke! Pour the fish sauce! 1 spoon of fish sauce! You can smell the sauce.
1 spoon of sugar! A litlle of broth powder! Little Broth powder.
Little salt! Just a little! Pour untill the water cover the surface! After we finish adding everything inside.
We will adjust to even flame.
First, so it will slowly cook the fish.
He's checking the taste.
Delicious! The taste is just right, huh? Promising, right! Oke! How long will it take to finish? Untill the water dried out! Oh, untill the sauce is absorb by the fish, right? Wow, so cool! what are we going to do next? Now, he will introduce to us fried Scallop Cone with garlic dish! In American, we call it Scallop.
In french, what does it call? Coquille saint-jacques! I have no idea.
With this kind of food, we can eat raw.
They're very soft, so the cooking will only take from 3-15 seconds and it's done.
Can i eat it raw? You try it! It's soft, so we can chew it easily! It's very sweet and tasty! Tasty and sweet! Fresh! 1 spoon of garlic.
Now, i will turn the fire bigger.
We will push the process faster.
Put the scallop inside.
This dish is easy to cook.
Do we need any other spices? – That's all?- That's all! And we'll add chilli pepper later.
It have to be cooked just right! Yeah, till it's cooked just right! The flame have to be strong! The flame have to be big.
Oke, i think the fire is strong already.
Now, give me the dish so i can put them out.
Here, your dish! Turn of the stove! Now, let's bring the dish outside and drink! No, we still have salad to make! Salad is easy to make, right? That dish is easy to make! Let me take a bite! – Can i try first?- Feel free to try it! Is this good? Tastier than eating raw.
– It's fried with a little oil!- Much tastier! With oil, chilli pepper and broth powder.
Crazily delicious! Let me take on bite! So good huh? This is herring! A special fish in Kiên Giang.
Phú Quốc, Hà Tiên and Rạch Giá.
Most of the places near and in Kiên Giang have this salad herring dish.
And this salad herring is a cuisine dish of Kiên Giang.
And when we use it to make salad, we only get meat from both side.
Fillet the meat! And you did mix some spices inside, right? What did you mix? It has garlic, Ginger.
And little broth powder.
Cool! But we have one thing to notice.
The smelt-whiting fish stew we just cooked, we also did fillet them the same as we did with herrings.
I think it's a great recipe.
Also a salad like this.
This salad dish is very good! I remember when i was in Vũng Tàu, i did try a long small fish like this.
That time we also did fillet their meat.
And squeezed lemon on the top.
In short, we can make salad with every kind of fresh fish! In japan, they only like to eat them raw! Now, before i mix the salad, i will start with stiring the vegetables.
Here we have persicaria.
This is papaya.
You should add the vegetables based on each person's taste.
Here we have Đà Lạt pepper.
Cabbage and onion.
Those are all well-minced.
Do you think it's enough? If it's too little, the salad dish will look small.
Let us be open-minded persons for today!There will be me and you, also some other friends of mine.
Add just a little so the food will be tastier.
When you're making salad, we have to add lemon.
The sourness of lemon will work well with the salad.
Also to make the salad softer.
If you pour lemon inside, the salad will be much softer.
Pour all of the lemon juice.
Stir so all the juice will be absorbed.
You can add another spices.
For instant, chilli pepper.
To bring the pleasing smell to the salad dish.
– Do you agree, Sơn?- Yes, i do! Small amount of sugar.
To spice up the recipe.
Remember only sprinkle a little salt on it.
Salt is expensive, so he want to save the money.
Mix it well with the veggies.
So the sauce will absorb in the vegetables.
Later, when we're ẹnjoying the fish, the vegetables won't be left out.
That's right! I lay 2/3 amount of salad dish on the plate.
And the 1/3 amount that remains, we will mix it with the fish.
See?Wonderful, right? Wonderful! Now let's put it on the plate.
See? Cool! Now we have a salad dish for our meal today.
Awesome! Look at the salad dish Chánh has made! Just now, If we put the fish above the vegetables, it won't look this appetizing.
Is that right? And also we're making salad dish, If we decorated like that, it won't look the same.
If we mix fish with vegetables like that, The fish will look less than usual.
The food will look tacky.
That's why when we fill the veggies in the bottom, And on top we put fishes and small amount of vegetables.
That's how you can enhance the appearance of the salad dish.
And when someone saw the dish, They would never though it's all filled with vegetables and not much fish inside.
Probably how we call the art of cooking! Cook, thanks you! And one more! Now this one is lamp shell.
According to my knowledge, this lamp shell is a specialty of Hà Tiên, It's rare to see them outside.
This specie actually look like seashell.
It's like a clam with the shell.
And especially, look at its tail.
– Crispy and tasty!- Look at its tail! And every one has tail.
Of course, most of them are male.
I'm about to ask about that! If they all have tails, there must be some features to distinguish.
And most of them are male.
Oh, if we eat the male on, it would be good for us, who also are male.
How do you mix them together?It's my first time! Now, make the normal salad.
Put them inside.
Squeeze them till they're dried.
The lamp shells are already contented with the sauce.
So they will be used for sauce.
Now we put the spices inside based on each person's taste.
And usually, we put mango, papaya and green onion.
– Mince the green onion.
– And cilantro too.
Cilantro, you mean Vietnamese corianders, herbs and culantros are fine too.
They enhance the tastiness.
Pluck the stem.
See, appetizing huh? You can do them with your hands.
Mix them together.
With lemon juice.
Stir them evenly.
So the juice will be absorbed.
The salad dish must be sour.
The sourness enhance the tastiness.
In foreign language, they call them salad.
Is that right? Mix them.
Mixed salad, foreign people usally eat them.
With many kinds of sauces like sour sauce, – And also salty sauce or sweet sauce too.
– Or Mayonnaise.
Mayonaiss, or Ranch dressing, Thousand Island dressing.
I think with this amount of vegetables.
You only need 1/4 amount of them.
Yeah! 1/4 of them, not too much.
Oke, I got it! Now, i will use the sauce.
It very good! All of the nutrition are contented in this sauce.
It roughly likes three-striped crab.
They dip the lamp shells with salt, right? Put them inside! Always do this with your hands.
Try it! I think it will match your taste.
Let me try too.
I don't know what you feel but i feel too good.
This is the face when you just ate some tasty food.
Are we done now? Oke, a little sour, But it's salad, it nees to be sour like that.
I want to put my sauce inside, so the sourness will be soothed away.
So it's your special sauce.
It's the special sauce of my restaurant.
Mix them up! Now you try again, Sơn! Now you're in heaven, huh? I love you! So good! Oke, they're the dishes made by us, the men.
If there's any mistake, please sympathize for us! Now, This is the end of our show “When the men cook”.
Know we will arrange it on the table, and begin the second episode.
“When the men party”.
Now, let's draw our sword! Draw the sword.
and start the show named “when two men have a drink”.
What should we do? What do we do next? We cooked these meals so now, let's enjoy them.
How to eat them?Show me your ways, .
please! What is the first meal we will eat? Mantis shrimps first! Mantis shrimps first, right? Now, I will show the easiest way to eat them.
First, We have to cut both sides of them.
If we don't do that, it's hard to take their meat out.
These are the two edges on both sides.
Try to cut a little bit deep.
In other to take their meat out easily.
But, don't cut too deep.
It's Mantis shrimp's meat.
These are their flippers.
It's easier for us to separate.
Now it's out.
Can you see?So beautiful! See it? So delicious! This is a whole meat back.
All of meat! The whole back.
The whole meat back! Let's start to take their meat out.
and pull it out.
So amazing! Thanks for this meal.
Have a cheer for the first successful meal- Mantis shrimps! It is a pity that.
Mantis shrimps were medium well.
That's why the shells are still stuck in the their body.
Right? If we cook them a little bit longer their shell will be easier to peel.
Okay!So yummy! Your ideas are wonderful because.
Medium well Mantis shrimps are perfect, because the meat is tender and sweet.
They are fresh so adhesion is okay! It's won't be fresh If they don't have the adhesion.
Remember that for the next times when you are going to eat seafood.
Mantis shrimps are so fresh because they moved.
Let's try the other meals Let's try! These are scallops.
The scallops of Vietnam are a little bit small.
So delicious! So tender! If we dip them into boiling water briefly to be firm.
We can eat raw the scallops.
So yummy! Are there any big ones? Yes! Big but very expensive! Let's try! Try and feel their tastes.
A piece of salad.
A piece of fish.
Clamp them together! No need any sauce.
Enjoy! So delicious, right? This piece of fish.
is so silky and fat.
The meat of this fish is also sweet.
With crunchy vegetables and.
sweet and sour sauce.
A little bit spicy.
So amazing! Let's drink! It's great! You make this fish salad very well! But I haven't marked yet, because It's more perfect if we roll them.
Eat them with vegetables.
Mix with Vegetables, cucumbers, .
A piece of fish.
A piece of vegetable.
Two pieces are more delicious! Let's roll them.
It's great if we use two pieces of fish to roll.
How do you feel? No sauce.

You see? I'll try eating it.
The meat inside is very good.
It's very tough.
Each one has a tail.
When people make fish sauce, it will drop the tail out.
– The best part is this tail.
Earlier in the kitchen, I tried the tail.
It is very crunchy.
It's like white radish which is dried.
It's very crunchy when we bite it.
But I tell you.
the tail is delicious, I prefer to eat its body.
The body is soft, tough and sweet.
In particular, it smells like seafood.
It's very fragrant.
It's Ha Tien's specialty, how could it not be delicious! Anything of Ha Tien is delicious? It's tough.
It's fat and tough.
With a clam, when you eat it, its meat is crunchy and melts, but this one When chewing it, it feels like a fiber.
It's really good.
“Ca xiu” – You have to try it! When you come to Ha Tien, you have to try “ca xiu”.
This “ca xiu”.
If you see it but you can't eat it, you will crave until you faint.
No kidding! It's delicious.
If you've ever eaten it once, surely you'll want to eat it a second time.
It's so good.
If you have eaten it once, you will remember it for life.
I want to try your braised fish dish.
Because the way you poach fish is different from the way I poach it.
So I'll try it.
Firstly, I try a piece of braised fish.
Is this a gudgeon? Yup.
It's a gudgeon.
It looks delicious.
It looks “imbued with the homeland love”!!! Does it have a horn in the middle? Is it delicious? I haven't tried it so I don't know what it tastes like.
The way I poach fish that I want the fish to be just cooked, the sauce on the fish's outside will be a little dark.
Because when we split the fish, the taste is still there.
The sauce is just eaten and the fish is just cooked.
It's delicious when we dipped it into the sauce.
It's delicious in a way that looks so fresh.
About the way you poach fish, It's kind of poach for all the flavors of water that you added the seasoning to infuse the fish.
We eat from the skin into the bones of the fish, it's rich with the flavor that the spice just added.
It is fragrant and delicious in a different way.
– Braised fish.
– Braised fish must be seasoned with rich spices.
It's so good.
Normally, the braised fish is cooked now, reheating in tomorrow is still delicious.
The bones of the fish even soften.
It's really good! But let's remember one thing that add morderate spices to the braised fish.
Don't put too salty.
That will be very salty when the sauce of fish recedes.
In fact, he is a Vietnamese overseas Vietnamese but cooks so well.
It's so amazing! Thank you so much! Thanks to you we also try to show talent.
I have a oppotunity to cook some dishes for you.
Certainly, it somehow reflects the characteristics of the homeland.
We never forget it.
By the way, I also want to thank you.
Thanks to you, I know what is special about Ha Tien.
Although you return from abroad, but I know you have a soul that loves your homeland.
even places you've been to come like lakes.
Those places are filled with images of our homeland.
Thanks to you, I have the footage and experiences when I shoot these things.
All Vietnamese in the world, every time they come to Ha Tien, they will know where to go, what to eat and where to stay.
Thank you for helping me recently when I was in Ha Tien.
