Feast Your Eyes: Roasted Quail

There are so many spectacular dishes at Minh’s, the unassuming Vietnamese restaurant in Clarendon, VA but I am particularly fond of the roasted quail. The bird is lacquered in a sweet glaze and accompanied by a peppery lemon dipping sauce. Whenever I’m sucking the succulent meat off the little bones I find myself transported to a roadside grill in Southeast Asia — and that, is a very good thing.

I can’t deny that another reason why I love this quail so much is because when I hold the tiny legs and wings in my hand I feel like a hungry giant instead of the petite Asian girl that I am.
