Green papaya and beef jerky salad (Vietnamese salad) is a light appetizer, a great choice for a snack or appetizer. It was popular because of its affordability and great taste, even if students didn’t get as much beef jerky as shown above. You can find this appetizer at some Vietnamese restaurants. A northern Viet favorite, green papaya salad made with beef jerky includes slivers of smoked liver and on occasion, lung too. Both the jerky and liver are a tad chewy, the liver adding a slight minerally quality to the salad. It’s no great shakes.

Waking up in the early morning and going out, you suddenly remember that it is a long time you do not enjoy rib porridge, and you feel hungry. Then, you decide to go for rib porridge.
Spare rib porridge is made of two main ingredients: white rice and spare ribs. The ribs are first stewed for one hour. The cook then takes them out, put the rice in the broth and cook until it turns into porridge. Next, the ribs are deboned before being put back into the porridge pot. A perfect bowl of spare rib porridge is the combination between the sweetness of the broth, thanks to ribs stewed for hours, and the tenderness of the pork and porridge. Enjoy it, and see if you can feel the same as what I mention above.

“Bánh rán” is a delicious finger food for breakfast in Vietnam. There are two main kinds of Bánh Rán, namely salty cake and sweet one with the latter being much more common than the former.
While the filling of sweet cake is sweet mashed mung bean, that of salty cake is quite similar to pillow cake‘s, a mixture of minced meat, prawn, glass noodle, veggie and etc. What is more, among different types of sweet cake, the cake coated with sesame seeds is the best choice due to its moderate sweet taste, crispy cover and subtle fragrant.
The dough is a blend of glutinous rice flour, rice flour, mashed potato and sugar. Mashed mung bean filling is rolled into ball shape, wrapped inside the dough and then rolled over a plate of sesame to make its sesame coat. After deep-fried, the cake is getting golden brown, crispy and aromatic. Hiding under that crispy cover is the sweet and nutty flavor of potato, rice, and mung bean. You can eat Bánh Rán in Ly Quoc Su Str., Hoan Kiem district, Hanoi, Vietnam.
