We were invited to a friend’s family home for a typical Vietnamese meal. All of the dishes were made at home. We have chicken with cucumber salad, beef noodles, deep fried spring rolls, a soup dish to eat with rice, and finished with fresh fruits. Love the balance of fresh herbs, meats, and the use of spices to reach a fine taste. Vietnamese cooks aim to preserve the freshness and natural taste of food as much as possible. I really enjoy this meal!
Bia Hoi + Sightseeing by Scooters
After lunch our friend let us borrowed her scooter and we rode around her hometown. We saw lots brown cows and beautiful rice fields. We went to a bia hoi (street-side pub) and had grilled dried squid, fermented pork roll, and fresh beer. It was such a fun experience!
