Labobali Similar to Haidilao, we’ll call it Labobali It’s short for Lau Bo Bac Lieu (Bac Lieu beef hotpot)

So you’re the 2nd generation This eatery is more than 40 years old More than 40 years? Back then, the eatery was so crowded with customers like this I have so many loyal customers Your eatery has more and more customers lately? Thanks to advertisement – You rent this place or it’s your house? – I rent it You’ve been selling here since the beginning? No. In the past, we moved many times because of heavy tax I can’t remember how many times we moved Every time the tax raised, he moved to another place Our eatery has been very popular for a long time What was its name? “Stewed Beef” – Just “Stewed Beef” – Yep When did you name it “Anh Tuyet”? Since the day I moved here. I renamed it “Anh Nguyet” Ah, “Anh Nguyet”.

Her lips are not swollen yet.
