Vietnamese Eat’s

  1. Vietnamese spring rolls – One of my new favorite foods.  It’s kind of like an egg roll, but better.  The rice paper around the roll is much thiner than a regular egg roll and there’s a bigger variety of veggies in them as well.  Don’t forget to try them with the chili vinegar sauce.  Recipe for Vietnamese Spring Rolls: Mix small carrot pieces, water chestnuts, green onions, mushrooms, egg yolk, cabbage, salt, pepper, and sugar together in a bowl.  Then lightly wet the rice paper so it doesn’t break when you form the roll.  Then wrap the ingredients making sure not to wrap it too full.  Heat oil then turn it down to a low heat and place the rolls in it.  Flip every thirty seconds for approximately seven minutes.

  2. Dragon Fruit – Has a texture like kiwi and also tastes similar to it.  Too bad it’s not the in the United States, because it’s delicious.Dragon Fruit - Taiwan Eats
  3. Dumplings – I’m a vegetarian so I didn’t try the regular dumplings, but I was able to try dumplings only made of dough.  They’re melt in your mouth good.

  4. Vietnamese Coffee – This is now a special treat I make when I’m at home.  It’s made of strong coffee (from a french press) and sweetened condensed milk.  I know it sounds weird, but I promise you it’s worth a try.

  5. Chocolate Bar at the Sofitel Hotel – If you’re going to splurge on something I recommend trying the chocolate bar at Sofitel.  Pricey yet sooo good and worth it.  It’s a buffet of expensive French desserts macaroons, exquisite chocolates, and crepes made to your liking in front of you.  Dessert people will be in heaven here.

     

  6. Pho – Even though Vietnam stays relatively warm all year round it doesn’t stop the locals from eating a hot soup called Pho.  Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, linguine-shaped rice noodles, a few herbs, and beef or chicken.IMG_0158
  7. Guava candies – I did not enjoy guava fruit by itself, but as a candy it’s much better.
  8. Coconut candies – If you like coconut candies make sure you take some coconut candies to eat and share with your friends and family.
