Delicious Vietnam #16 Round Up Posted by: | August 19, 2011

I’m so excited! After participating in a few Delicious Vietnam blog events in the past, now it’s finally my turn to host one myself! It’s amazing to see how many people around the world are blogging about Vietnamese food, and it kinda makes me feel bad for not blogging about Vietnamese food more often even […]

Vietnamese Dessert: Chè Cốm Posted by: | July 31, 2011

The past 2 months have been eventful and turbulent at the same time, which unfortunately kept me away from this little blog that normally would be a reflection of my life status. If you see entries coming up regularly, it means I’m contented, stable and happy. If you see no entries for more than 3 […]

Chicken Pho (Pho Ga) Posted by: | April 11, 2011

Today I am introducing to you the Pho as I know it. Not the famous Pho you’d find in those Hanoi Old Quarters with their traditional sweet bone broth (and also the infamous amount of MSG they use), but the Pho I grew up with in my home, made by my Mom on those lazy […]

Vietnamese Pan-fried Tofu Posted by: | March 12, 2011

I never thought I would blog about such a seemingly trivial dish. But I truly experienced its beauty and meaning today, at a place I would never imagine. A roadside hair salon. Actually it would hardly qualify as a salon, as it’s just just a hole in the wall on a busy street outside my […]

Happy New Year!!! I’m finally blogging my first entry of 2011, on my new website! I’m so happy that I have finally made my second big move after moving back to Vietnam, which is to move my blog to my own host, with a custom designed template. Finally I can have bigger images and nicer […]

Stir Fry Pho (Pho Xao) Posted by: | September 23, 2010

After 1.5 weeks buzzing around settling into my home in Hanoi, I realized I am almost at the end of my 2-week break. And why do I not feel rested at all? I can’t really recall the last time I felt truly rested. This move has really been draining me out. I thought once I […]

Vietnamese Caramel Ginger Chicken a la Bobby Chinn Posted by: | June 3, 2010

I know this is lame but being a Vietnamese, I always feel that I do not need to buy any Vietnamese cookbooks, since I already know most of the basics, and I could just ask my Mom for recipes anytime. I’ve been trying out lots of fancy recipes from all kinds of cuisines, except for […]

Beef Stir Fry with Sautéed New Potatoes and Cherry Tomatoes Posted by: | May 7, 2010

One of my favorite stir fries that my Mom makes is Beef Stir Fry with Potatoes. Her version would typically include Sautéed Potatoes with beef, garlic, and cilantro leaves for flavour and garnishing. It is simple and yet so delicious. However, this week, I made a healthier version, using new potatoes instead of normal potatoes, […]

Tuesday is Stir-Fry day Posted by: | April 28, 2010

I have mentioned before that Tuesdays are the longest work day of the week. Or at least it feels like it. I managed to drop by the supermarket and still be home by 7:30pm. However, it felt like 9pm to me. Time to recharge myself with all the goodness of the fresh and colorful vegetables […]

Vietnamese Style Healthy Chicken Stir Fry Posted by: | April 15, 2010

Tonight I had the pleasure of hosting a simple midweek dinner for 2 of my closest friends I met through the working world: Gary & Jolin. It was a rather random and last minute thing. Luckily I already had some nice chicken fillet in my freezer and a bunch of dry and fresh mushrooms I […]
