For some reason, when it comes to Vietnamese cuisine, the majority of our citizens are at once big eyes, and they are reflected in those eyes - cockroaches and maggots. They say they only Vietnamese and eat from morning till night crunch. Larvae and indeed in Vietnam there are no problems. You can buy in the store - are waiting in the wings, fresh, next to meat or chicken.
But in fact, Vietnam is not uniform larvae alive inhabitants. A lot of tasty and his bezlichinochnyh (well, at least in the formulation) dishes. And the price of these dishes - the devil can, move to Vietnam?
Somehow pleased familiar images of the price tag of the Vietnamese supermarket Big C. So beat promised to return, really! Especially after I am told that the market prices even lower.
I show you this file. At the same time I wanted to tell you how to prepare the pho-bo, a classic Vietnamese soup, but thought it still has most of the break in the middle of reading a recipe. So just talk about the features of Vietnamese cuisine.
By the way, for the price of translation into rubles - share dongs per thousand, multiply by 2.7-2.8 approximately (can 3 for insurance)
Cooking it has three areas, they are divided by region. North, south and central Vietnam, all eat differently. North - a tradition and the same soup Pho, South Vietnam cuisine - sweet taste and a wide range of herbs, which developed under the influence of the Chinese and the French colonialists. Kitchen central Vietnam is diverse small snacks supplied to the main dish.
Very popular chicken and pork, by the way.
Vietnamese like sauces. Fish sauce (has a very peculiar smell), chili sauce, ketchup, sweet and sour plum sauce, tamarind, and of course, soy sauce - is on every table.
And, of course, the course is a lot of fish and seafood. Price - all used sparingly.
The basis of many dishes there - Fig. And another very popular Spring rolls, in rice paper.
Spices in Vietnamese cuisine are present, but not in such large quantities, such as, for example, in Tae. Chili, pickled garlic, seasonings and spices most often served separately.
In Vietnam, almost all dishes (well, except for desserts) served also a lot of herbs. The beam next to the plate will be mint, lemongrass, lettuce, lime, cilantro, Thai basil and more.
Oh yeah, about the strangeness speak forgot! Larvae and other (including dogs) are present, but... not everywhere and not always. They are more for tourists (to frighten). So what to eat quietly, without remorse and thoughts - what you have in your plate, maybe even the most demanding European.
Go to Vietnam - bon appetit!
