More than 1 week ago I ate a lot of Banh Mi. When you don't have the time to cook, Banh Mi to the rescue lol, well at least for me haha.

There are many types of Banh Mi, all depending on what go into between the 2 buns. Below looks like Banh Mi Thit Xa Xiu, one of the types I ate along with Banh Mi Thit Nguoi. These 2 types are what I often choose. 



This looks like a breakfast type of Banh Mi, there are bacons & eggs. I would not recommend eating it with 2 eggs lol.

I don't eat this type of Bun often but once in a while, I would have a craving for it. It's called Bun Rieu (a Northern Vietnam type of Bun) - Vietnamese Meat Rice Vermicelli Soup. There are a few types, the most known types are Crab, Fish, Shrimp & Snail. I personally like the Bun Rieu Cua (Crab) most. I like to eat this type of Bun because of the crab paste with eggs, tofu & tomatoes!! .







To eat Bun Rieu, you will need these other items to put into a bowl of Bun Rieu. Shrimp paste enriches its flavor.

I am craving for Che Banh Lot - Vietnamese Worm Like Jelly Drink. I love to eat it cold with the pandan flavor & coconut milk. It's also known in different Southeast Asian countries as Cendol, Lod Chong, Mont Let Saung & etc.

I have not eat this for a while which I forgot when was the last time I ate it. It is one of my favorites & it is called Mien Ga - Chicken Glass Noodle Soup. Some people would add shredded black fungus mushrooms & boiled quail eggs into their bowls.

I just had Goi Cuon Chay - vegetarian spring rolls with peanut butter sauce for dinner. There are other sauces too such as fish sauce, fermented fish sauce (with minced lemongrass & pineapple), soy sauce & this one orange sauce that I am not quite sure how it is made. Peanut butter sauce & soy sauce are most edible for people who are not allergic to peanuts or soybeans & could not eat sauces with fish smell. I love to eat this because I get to eat a lot of vegetables so it is pretty much healthy besides that it is also colorful with all the different vegetables. Here are some photos of different kinds of Goi Cuon:

Goi Cuon Ga (Chicken) with Avocado



Goi Cuon Prawn with Mango

P.s. When making peanut butter sauce, make it with the sauce that you eat with Pho & add a little Sriracha with crushed peanuts.

My favorite moon cake is the lotus with double yolk but I can only eat 1 a year lol.

From the photos I posted, I think they are either home made or from Vietnamese restaurants. These types of noodles also come in packets but they are not great since they are not fresh & will need extras such as meats, seafood, vegetables & sauces/spices/flavors to make them good to eat.

They are yummy & they contain lots of calories lol.

Ahhh Banh Beo (Steamed Rice Cakes), I totally forgot about them, now that you mentioned them, here are some photos of them lol. I think the reason I forgot about them was that I posted Banh Bot Loc, this is a famous Central Vietnam dish & Banh Beo is also a famous dish from Central Vietnam too.

Banh Beo with mung beans, fried shallots and green cut scallions & dried shrimps.



With fried pork skins & (Nuoc Mam) fish sauce yummy :yummy:.

I want to eat them now....Let go my Egg Rolls lol.

Cha Gio (Vietnamese Egg Rolls) aka as Nem Ran by Northern Vietnamese people - the wrappers on these egg rolls are rice paper wrappers, they have the crunchiness & chewiness to them.

I considered them as sisters to Vietnamese Spring Rolls lol.



These egg rolls have different wrappers.



Another different wrappers so these egg rolls are called Cha Gio Re.



Another photo of Bo Bia, so yummy :yummy:!

Back to desserts

Chè Trôi Nước, sometimes it is called Chè Xôi Nước, both meaning "dessert wading in water." It is consisting of balls made from mung bean paste wrapped in a shell made of glutinous rice flour. The balls are served in a sweet clear or brown liquid made of water, sugar, and grated ginger root. It is generally warmed before eating and garnished with sesame seeds, shredded ginger & coconut milk.
