Yummmmy.....

Sorry for making you guys hungry and thirsty....

Traditional Vietnamese white rice. Normally, a Vietnamese uses two or three bowls of rice for lunch and dinner:


Cá cơm kho khô - I don't really know how to translate into English, but to make this, use small fishes, put some salt, sugar, some fish sauce, some onion and some more water with color maker (from sugar), put all in to a closed pot, cook until all water evaporated and the fishes are left dry. This is to eat with white rice. Really nice. Need nothing more:



This is a special food of Huế (a province in Middle of Vietnam).
It made from some sort of small mussel, mixing with some peanuts, sesame, onion.... This is to eat with rice crackers (as you see on the left). People not using spool to take the mussel, they use rice crackers to do that:

Bánh Tôm Hồ Tây - West Lake Shrimp cakes.
The special dish beside West lake in Hanoi Vietnam. Made by frying some flour and shrimp. Use with some vegetable and fish sauce.





And here also a special dish of Vietnam. I think it started from some where middle of Vietnam for the King. Then now every part of Vietnam has their own type.
Common name is Spring Roll (Gỏi cuốn).
Cooked pork, shrimp, some pickles, onion leaf, noodle, vegetable.... all rolled inside the rice cover. Used with special sauce.

Seriously Viethorse, you should think about a food tour on a motorbikes, I think a 5 day tour to various cultural places with the local foods would be great. Throw in a cooking class at a nice resort with good beer, and I will pay you for the experience.

This dish is very very simple but really special in Vietnam. Name is "Gà luộc lá chanh" (Boiled chicken with lemon leaves).
It's simple - yeah, you can see the dish, just get the chicken meat to be boiled and put them on there.
The special is the special chicken. People called "garden chicken" - the chicken growing freely, with all natural food (not the food from manufacture). The meat is solid, sweet and has very special smell.
And with some lemon leaves, the smell becomes extremely special and unforgettable.
With some pepper salt, a little bit lemon, some sliced onion... damn... I have to have it this weekend!!!



And of course, with some cold, very cold beers!! LOL....

What perfect timing for a thread

I love travelling, food (both eating and cooking), beer and riding.

So I'm combining the lot and next Saturday I fly into Hanoi arriving about 7.00pm, perfect timing for dinner, staying at the Army hotel till Tuesday when we depart on Ural m/c's, (I'm riding a 650 sidecar) heading south to HCMC via parts of the HCM trail, then when that end's, I jump on a Vespa with a guide for another 2 weeks
of touring Vietnam

Can't wait to get there, if any ADVr in Vietnam wants to say g/day, pm me.
As you might have guessed, I'm an Aussie and hate a beer

Forgot to add.

I'm from Melbourne and we have a very substanial Vietnamese population in our wonderful multi cultured city, and like all other mirgrants they have bought with them their own cuisine

One of the major centers for Vietnamese food is Victoria St, Richmond, with wall to wall restaurants for hundreds of meters.

In fact Melbourne is regarded as one of the best, if not the best eating centers in the world, the lastest wave of migrants are from Africa, and their restaurants are begining to pop up.

Then we have our local wines, which are acknowledged as some of the best in the world, and our beers aren't too shaby either

And no, I'm not employed by the Melbourne Tourist board
