It’s unfamiliar and popular like clams, shrimp, scallops, etc but if anyone has a time to enjoy, surely will not forget the distinctive taste of this seafood. It has a very special savory flavor and a crunchy texture. Geoduck is also rare and valuable, even to the Vietnamese people. It can be prepared in soup or salads, steamed or baked.

Its meat mix with spice can attract any visitor when he comes here. Tours of Indochina
