Gà Xào Sả Ớt Lemongrass Chicken – 330 of 365

Gà Xào Sả Ớt The Pleiku airport has nourished me more times than I can count with containers of stir fried noodles and fried rice with a greasy sunny side up egg.  By now you’ve probably figured out most eggs generally make a one way trip from my plate to the trash can.  I so […]

Thịt Heo Xào Nấm Pork and Mushroom Stir Fry – 318 of 365

Waiting out a short weather delay at the airport led me yet again to the employee canteen situated deep in the fringes of the airport.  This stuffy concrete hut is the home of some pretty good choices I don’t otherwise see out in the city.  I’ll take the variety and of course new items keep […]

Fried Bread – 317 of 365

Believe it or not, these two pieces of bread did constitute the bulk of a meal.  What sort of meal it was, I am still trying to figure out.  At the airport in Dalat I had asked the ground crew to bring me some fruit from the passenger buffet, and nice slices of mango, unripe […]

Cà Ri Gà Sân Bay Airport Curry Chicken – 294 of 365

Minus the all too typical rubber chicken (standard feature in Vietnam), this plastic container of goodness is probably one of the better airport foods I have tasted.  What a nice surprise to arrive in Dalat and have something other than fried rice or noodles for a change.  We serve our customers a meal at the […]

Tôm Thịt Bò Xào Beef and Prawn Stir Fry – 289 of 365

I ordered the steak and shrimp today and didn’t even have to think twice about the price.  Well, I almost had “steak and shrimp.”  Steak and shrimp always pair so well at fancy restaurants back home, and I do enjoy that combination.  You can just imagine my delight when I spotted something vaguely similar.  This […]

Măng Kho Thịt Braised Ribs and Bamboo – 279 of 365

Usually my day of flying is just one flight after another with no time in between.  A very rare break popped up on my schedule and gave me the chance to actually eat some food other than what spawns in the galley.  So off the airport canteen I went in search of a quick takeaway meal. […]

Hanoi Airport Sandwich – 258 of 365

Airports in America have the usual suspects such as Burger King, McDonald’s and even the occasional Taco Bell.   With the exception of a few Burger Kings at Saigon’s international terminal, the choices here are local food everywhere else.   As long as you like local food no worries at all.   But even this local food is done […]

Nui Xào Thịt Heo Macaroni and Pork – 216 of 365

This journey across Vietnam one bite at a time has mostly led me off the normal food trails.  While traveling to Hue by air would seem quite mainstream, the location of this breakfast was anything but for me.  I am normally the Air Asia or Ryanair crowd when traveling abroad since how I get there […]

Airport Faux-Phở – 195 of 365

Let me preface this by saying that I realize a domestic airport terminal in Vietnam is not the sort of launching pad where one embarks on some amazing culinary odyssey.  The selections are geared for the most local of locals and in Vietnam this is normally a good thing.  As a friend and I waited […]
