Ragu Gà Chicken Ragout – 356 of 365

Even with just a handful of meals remaining before this goal of 365 is reached, Vietnam is still revealing new culinary secrets bite by bite.  I am beginning to think I have only scratched the surface here even after a year of delicious discoveries.  Another twelve months would definitely be in order to even more […]

Gà Chiên Mật Ong Honey Wings – 343 of 365

A friend and I wanted to veer a little bit off the beaten path in terms of food so we ordered frog legs stir fried in coconut milk.  Unfortunately, the waitress returned ten minutes later to explain, “cannot!”  Man, I just wanted my exotic food on this rare occasion I was feeling adventurous.  And it took her that […]

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 […]

Cơm Gà Ngũ Vị Chicken Strips With Salad – 326 of 365

Vietnam is so much more than just rice, rice, and more rice as my latest and greatest lunch proves.  Well, let me clarify that a little bit since a heap of rice did arrive on the side with this one.  But you get what I mean…this one wasn’t based on rice somehow as in noodle […]

Miến Gà Chicken and Glass Noodle Part Two – 302 of 365

Not so long ago a great miến gà crossed my path, and I thought what luck to find such an amazing treat in a Chinatown  back alley.  The wonderfully clear broth went down so nicely and left me wanting more.  Even the tender white meat chicken was of most proper sanitization for my western tastes. Fast […]

Gà Nướng Grilled Chicken – 297 of 365

I immersed a friend into his first street food experience and this one went down as one to remember.  We wandered over to Ngo Tat To Street in Binh Thanh District for a grilled dinner and along with the slab of meat came a slice of chaos.  And when I say immersion I mean a […]

Chicken in Oil – 296 of 365

An American friend and I recently discussed our mutual disdain for the average piece of Vietnamese chicken.  Anyone who has ever eaten some of this highly interesting stuff knows what I am talking about.  It’s a case of bird meats cleaver to become one hacked up mess.  Each piece is an abomination of bone shards, […]

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 […]

Gà Rán KFC – 287 of 365

The planets just didn’t align today for another amazing round of street food.  Something pesky called work along with something even peskier called rain kept my wanderlust locked up this morning.  Yes, I could have gotten out and about for a while had a tried but being lazy was just easier this time. And this […]

Miến Gà Chicken and Glass Noodle Soup – 286 of 365

As the sun sets in District 5’s Cho Lon area, better known as “Chinatown,” businesses pull up the welcome mats and once bustling storefronts fade into the darkness.   This isn’t to say that that the sidewalks completely roll up though.  The food carts and streetside eateries begin to appear out of the woodwork, and a […]
