Vietnamese food is one of the most varied cuisines – a delicious mix of the food influenced by colonial and age-old native flavours and techniques. In this second series, Vivian Pei will be teaching a course of another 4 mouth-watering dishes.
1. Bot Chien
Another popular street food, Bot Chien is a fried rice flour cake mixed with eggs and lots of green onions topped with green papaya or pickled daikon and carrots and enjoyed with a drizzle of light soy sauce and sweet chili sauce. It is a source of comfort food for many Vietnamese.
2. Bánh xèo
Bánh xèo, literally "sizzling cake", named for the loud sizzling sound it makes when the rice batter is poured into the hot pan, is a Vietnamese savory fried pancake made of rice flour, water, turmeric powder. It is stuffed with a variety of fillings including, pork, shrimp, diced green onion, mung bean, and bean sprouts.
3. Bò Bía
The name Bò Bía is likely a Vietnamese adaptation of the Chinese roll “popiah.” These two foods are quite different though. The Vietnamese bò bía is a fresh type of spring roll, packed with vegetables. Despite containing Chinese sausages, these rolls are fairly light, so you can actually eat a quite a few!
4. Bún bò Huế
Bún bò Huế s a popular Vietnamese soup containing rice vermicelli and beef. Huế is a city in central Vietnam associated with the cooking style of the former royal court. The dish is greatly admired for its balance of spicy, sour, salty and umami flavors.
