One of the Vietnamese dishes melted my in-laws’ heart is this Vietnamese beef stew (“Bò Kho”). It is one of the recipes that turns tough meat cut, like beef shanks, into delicious and flavorful. The beef was marinated, then cooked in coconut water and spices till tender… hmmm… yummy!
“Bánh canh cua” or “Vietnamese crab udon soup” was one of my favorite soups of all time. It is savory with a delightful sweetness of the broth. Make my mouth watering every time I think of it, so let’s make it, shall we?
A simple, savory yet unpopular Vietnamese rice noodle soup that you probably would never find it anywhere: Bún Bò Sáo Răm. This rice noodle soup features simple ingredients: thin-sliced beef, lots of tomatoes and Vietnamese coriander. And yes, it’s another delicious recipe from grandma, haha!
Located in the heart of Asian District of Mesa, Mekong sandwiches is a hidden gem for authentic “Banh mi”.
“Bánh mì” is such a delicious and convenient treat. It is truly “fast food” of Vietnam. Along side with the famous “Bánh mì” (sandwich type), there is “Bánh mì chảo”, usually for dine-in. Regardless which versions, “Bánh mì” has become a phenomena in Vietnamese street food cuisine.
Vacations in Vietnam end, and on the way back, you probably want to get something to commemorate your trip. How about I suggest you some safe and great choices?
This post is dedicated to the flavors from my grandma’s kitchen!
In Vietnam, you can find these food carts everywhere, and most of the time, the food they served is much better than hi-end restaurants, with a much cheaper price. So, the next time you visit Vietnam, go out and try the street food from local vendors!
