Every traveler knows that the real reason to see the world is FOOD. Trying new things while guessing the ingredients is half the fun right there. Eating in South East Asia is a real joy, even if it comes at a high price (Imodium, ring a bell?) Many places I remember by dishes: thereâ€™s Dalatâ€™s Asparagus crab meat soup, Hanoiâ€™s Pho, Hueâ€™s Bun Bo, Hoi Anâ€™s â€˜white roseâ€™, Koh Lantaâ€™s crab in beer…..
Vietnamese food has long been a favorite of mine; perhaps itâ€™s the fresh ingredients or French influence but I simply love it! A couple of weeks ago I decided to test my Vietnamese cooking skills and made Pho for the first time with the help of our good friend Thu. Itâ€™s a lengthy process that includes a lot of preparation, many ingredients and what seems like a whole herd of cows. Making Pho requires patience but with Thuâ€™s guidance, it came out great!
