Bird Flu Effect

Due to the bird flu, lots of people are losing their businesses and money. I talked to a lady who sells my favourite duck eggs near my work. She said that she had lost quite a bit of money for the duck eggs that she bought in advance. She also tried to sell for a few more days after the scare was official but not many people wanted to risk their lives. This is the reason why she has started selling Bánh Gio (steamed rice cake with pork, mushroom, onion and pepper wrapped in banana leaves) served with chilli. The good thing about this dish is that there is no specific time when it is eaten, which means it can be found somewhere in Hanoi at any time of the day. It's a good choice for hot winter food.

You also can ask her to order, from the stall across the road, some Nom- green papaya and dry beef or liver salad and Bánh Bot Loc-steamed rice pan cake with shrimp, mushroom and pork.

Enjoy these dishes with a hot cup of tea; sit in front of the old church in Ham Long. It's a good place for a snack.

Hey Vietnamese God,

Came across your blog by accident and it is really interesting. Vietnam is on my top 10 list of places to go.
The pic of the dishes look really good. Can't wait to sample Vietnamese cuisine!

Great photos. The food looks amazing. I miss my mom's cooking! I was born in Vietnam but grew up in the U.S. I love Banh Gio...wish I knew how to make it or knew of a place nearby to buy it. Just found your blog...will go back and look at some past posts. Saw the photos of the food and HAD to comment immediately. Keep up the great work on the photos!

Hello Oh Wise One. Your blog is very informative and colorful. Love the photos. I was just wondering though, what is the clear looking film in the green papaya dish with some meat on it??? Is that green papaya sliced so thin or is that some sort of Asian noodle?? By the way, you must have seen the movie "The Scent of Green Papaya." It was really a beautiful movie with English subtitles in the U.S. Vietnam looks beautiful.
Cheers Oh Wise One....Deb
p.s. Amazon.com has the movie.

Hey godknows...
You have made a really excellent blog about Culture of Viietnam, photos and all. you should think of starting a agazine or atleast being a freelancer.

at last i found someone who blogs abt Viet food. Been missing them since my reposting back to Malaysia. Nha Trang - been there once and the seafood is great and CHEAP.

U guys should indeed go over and sample food frm there. Personally , i prefer southern cuisine or HUE cuisine.

Kia ora Vietnamese God,
It's nice to see your blog and things about Vietnam. I'm a Vietnamese (oh, yeah, Vietnamese!) living in NZ (Aotearoa). It is so good to see the photos about the food and the people back home...I'm sooo homesick...*sobbing* Keep it up!!!

SJ said...

Nice pics.. would like to try some Viet food someday.

Sylvana said...

I heard that cooking killed the flu. Do people not think that this is true? Or are they worried about cross contamination in the food preparation?

Godknows said...

Hi,
Cooking does kill the flu but the thing is knowing whether the bird was sick or not and taking precautions when handling them. Good new is that as from today the Bird flu has been officially eliminated from Viet Nam and I can eat poultry again.
Thanks everyone for your encouragement
