Pho is Nr 1, of course !

There a lot of boring definitions of Pho. For us as Pho lover we never try to explain why we love it so much and why it becomes national dish. We enjoy it with family, think of it as we are weak, tired, hurry, get cold. Es is for us so important,  so healthy  so we always talk about it in term of very sinful relationships “ Vợ là cơm, Bồ là Phở – Rice is your good wife, but Pho is your beautiful mistress ”. As i was writting this content, asked my 14 years old son “ why dad ?” i just gave him a laugh “ Eat Pho and you will understand it later, everything needs time and  muss be in balance” – Foto: Chicken Pho in Hanoi.

Chả giò và gỏi cuốn

Next to Pho, fried / fresh spring roll has contributed to the shaping Vietnamese cuisine. Spring roll is a dish that once you have tasted, you just want to have more. We have fried spring roll ( chả giò) and fresh spring roll or sommer roll ( gỏi cuốn). Essentially, spring roll is a must-have dish for special occasions such as Tet, family gatherings, etc. Nowadays, the dish can be served all year round, and present in almost every menu of Vietnamese restaurant abroad. There are many fancy and fusion receipes for spring roll and summer rolll but our restaurant cooks it in very traditional way. The dishes themself are  masterpieces but it’s not yet complete without the perfect-made dipping sauce which is a combination of nước mắm (savory fish sauce), a bit of sugar, salt, umami, some drop of lime juice or vinegar.
