H.C.M (Ho Chiak so Much)

vietnamese food
There is a sayng that Banh Mi (Vietnamese Sandwish) is the world's best sandwich. It was introduced by the French during its colonial period

Let's start with Nuoc Cham. It is not a dish, but it's what accompanies just about every dish.
It's made with fish sauce (obviously), lime juice, sugar, garlic, chili peppers, and sometimes shredded carrot or lemongrass

A balut (spelled standardized as balot) is a developing duck/chicken embryo that is boiled and eaten in the shell

It is commonly sold as streetfood in the Vietnam

trứng vịt lộn or hột vịt lộn (in Vietnamese) are often served with beer

Cua Rang Muoi, Salt and Pepper red Crab

Rang Muc, Squid Teeth! i can never expect they can be cooked and eaten just like this!

Con Ngheu Hap, Vietnamese Clams in Lemongrass Broth

Bo Bia, Vietnamese Spring Roll

This is how they are made

Banh Canh Cua, Vietnamese Crab Soup

Vietnamese Balitong, the Obtuse Horn Shell or the Mud Creeper!

Taste same as Malaysia Balitong? I doubt


Something fishy...

Challenge Accepted

Ended up as Spiderman

Epic failed! Lol

Snails and Shellfish are very common food in Vietnam but not this size!

Curry Eel

Tiet Canh, the Vietnamese Pizza

Eating while sitting on a small tool, by the busy roadside

I love the way they sit

Last bite, for Tiet Canh

Che, it refers to any sweet pudding or dessert soup, which usually gets covered in jellied or dried fruit toppings. Taste the rainbow of longans, rambutan, mangoes, jackfruit chips, mung beans, black beans, and more sticky sweetness

Banh Beo Hue, water fern cake or Steamed Rice Cake, can be seen everywhere in Ben Tanh Market

And of course, Vietnamese Coffee is a Must Try! The Aroma... Owww
Last but not least, many thanks to our Vietnamese pretty friend, Ying Ying
