Vietnamese Beef Pho Recipe

Not too long ago, I shared a Vietnamese Chicken Pho Recipe. And today, it’s going to be a Beef Pho Recipe. Both are rather similar in terms of preparation and cooking methods except that the base of each broth is different. That is, using either chicken or beef to make the broth. You’ll also notice […]

Vietnamese Chicken Pho Recipe

Having lived in Vietnam for a period of time, my mother-in-law is not unfamiliar with Vietnamese cooking. She is a mean cook who makes a really awesome chicken pho that is packed full of flavour but not heavy-handed with seasonings. And I like that she will always add char siew in the pho so every […]

Com Suon Nuong Recipe (Vietnamese Pork Chop Rice)

I just couldn’t forget how amazing the Com Suon Nuong I had in Hanoi was. It was an old and unassuming eatery that served up only one dish – Vietnamese Pork Chop Rice – which seemingly looked like a humble plate of mixed rice (‘chap chye png’). But that smoky flavour of the meat combined with […]

Bun Cha Recipe – Vietnamese Grilled Pork

If you can only eat one dish in Hanoi, make sure it’s the bun cha. The smokiness of the slightly charred grilled pork is always so intoxicating. Needless to say, moreish too. I’ve had two very good bun cha at Bun Cha 34 and Bun Cha Huong Lien (made famous by former US President Barack […]

Xoi Xeo – Sticky Rice with Mung Beans & Fried Shallots

My last eat-venture in Hanoi was a very rewarding and inspiring experience. When I came home, I couldn’t wait to kick off my cooking experiments. Wanted to recreate those lovely Viet dishes I had while the tastes and flavours were still fresh in the mind. One of the dishes that left a deep impression on […]

Big Bowl at Noi Bai International Airport, Hanoi – Having our last bowl of pho before leaving

Can’t believe this will be the last post of my Hanoi food-venture. Really felt like I had been in Hanoi for a long, long time. And I just couldn’t believe how much we had eaten while there because there were so many new stuffs to try. Amazing! We headed to Noi Bai International Airport to […]

Little Vietnam in Old Quarter, Hanoi – Comforting home-cooked food and the cutest pugs

On our last night in Hanoi, we decided to have dinner at Little Vietnam that was located very near to our hotel. In fact, we walked past it everyday when we were headed towards the main shopping/eating areas of the Old Quarter. And every time I would just stop for a minute or two to […]

Mien Luon Dong Thinh – Have You Eaten Fried Eel Before?

John wanted to have supper at this fried eel shop that was packed with many locals. Must be pretty good as business was so brisk. But I was a bit hesitant because I’ve never been a huge fan of eels – not because of the way it looks (or resembles the snake) but I just […]

Nope, not having banh mi this time. We were initially looking for a particular bit tet (steak) place as recommended by a fellow foodie but couldn’t find it at its original address anymore. Just as we were about to walk away from the area to find something new to eat, we stumbled upon Banh My […]

Pho 10 Ly Quoc Su – Overrated and overpriced pho but the quay is delicious

This pho restaurant that was located very near to our hotel was always packed with customers. In fact, it was probably one of the very few restaurants in the Old Quarter that would have queues of people everyday. Pho 10 Ly Quoc Su 10 Ly Quoc Su Street Hoan Kiem, Hanoi Vietnam Tel: +84 4 […]

Pho Bac Hai on 22 Hang Bo Street, Hanoi

Found this place on TripAdvisor when I was looking for banh xeo so the moment we spotted the eatery on Hang Bo Street, we were very excited that we could finally have some savoury Vietnamese pancakes for breakfast as we were famished. The lady boss welcomed us with a big smile and eagerly gestured towards […]

Banh Bao Luong Van Can – Vietnamese Steamed Bun with Quail Eggs

We were on our way to Hang Bo Street to look for banh xeo and as we walked down Luong Van Can Street, we spotted several stalls that were selling steamed buns or banh bao. We stopped by one of them to check it out. Banh Bao Luong Van Can Luong Van Can Street Hoan […]

Com Suon Nuong – Where There’s Smoke, There’s Grilled Pork

Where there is smoke, there is grilled pork. This is indeed very true for Hanoi. It’s so easy to spot a restaurant that serves grilled pork (for example, bun cha) – you’ll either catch a whiff of BBQ or see smoke on the streets. And that was how we discovered this place. Com Suon Nuong […]
