Yuca Fritters – Carimañolas

by Analida @ Analida's Ethnic Spoon

  So, here’s another yuca recipe that happens to be one of my favorites: yuca fritters – carimañolas. But, before I go on, the correct pronunciation for this tasty tuber is you-kah, not yuck-ah(yucca). One is a root vegetable, the other a desert plant. Two similar spellings? Yes! This is where the similarities end. Botanically...

Amsterdam: Culture, Canals and Coffeeshops

by Jonathan Doidge @ Hungry To Escape

Amsterdam, is, without doubt, is one of the prettiest cities in Europe, the “Venice of the North”, beautiful green spaces and traditional architecture condensed into a small area dissected by picturesque canals designed to keep the city from flooding. It has long been known as a party town, most likely due to its relaxed stance on cannabis, cheap booze and debaucherous red light district. It is a very fun city, but it’s not all about getting high and window shopping the red-light district. It offers so much more, but let’s firstly address the elephant in the room, the coffee shops!! Whilst cannabis is not strictly legal in the Netherlands, it’s tolerated. You cannot just light up a joint in public, you need to do it in a designated coffee shop or in your home (note: most hotels will not permit this) That’s not to say that there is not a fair amount of public consumption, you can cop a 50 euro fine for it, stick to the coffee shops as small children and families don’t need to be inhaling second hand cannabis smoke. There are coffee shops scattered around the city, inside, there will generally be a bar selling non-alcoholic […]

It is the first cable-stayed bridge in Hanoi with a total length of 8.9km (5.5 miles) with five spans, representing the capital city’s five ancient gates, crossing the Red River. The project had total investment of VND13,600 billion ($598 million), split between the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Vietnamese government. The bridge was opened for public together with Nhat Tan – Noi Bai Highway which helps shorten travel time between Noi Bai International Airport and Hanoi’s center. Dong Tru Bridge Dong Tru Bridge opened to traffic in October 2014. The 1.1km bridge crossing the Duong River in Long Bien District cost VND882 billion and has eight lanes. It is 55m wide and has two 80m side-spans and a 120m central span. The bridge was built using concrete-filled steel arches, the first time this technology had been used in Southeast Asia. It is also the widest bridge in Vietnam. Thang Long Bridge Thang Long Bridge was built from 1974 to 1985.

Gastronomic gastropods- Vietnamese loves snails !

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

From Michelin-starred fine dining, to chili-laden, beer-swilling, street-food staple, the humble snail takes many forms. Oysters, lobsters, sushi and snails; all now “posh” and expensive elements of global food culture. They were, however, once all considered to be the food of the lower-classes. In fact, oysters were so plentiful during the European colonization of the Americas that their crushed shells were a common component in brick making. Likewise, the practice of wrapping raw fish (and other meats) in rice was, many centuries ago, a common way for Japanese farmers and fishermen to preserve food for several months at a time. And then there’s lobster, that ubiquitous element of modern fine dining. According to a report on the creature’s recent popularity by the U.K.’s Telegraphnewspaper, the clawed crustacean was “once not deemed worthy for anything other than the ‘lowest of the low.’” It’s funny how things change. Add a bit of gold leaf, a smear of pureed veg, a froth of salty foam, and a jacked-up price tag, and suddenly the cuisine of the working classes jumps a few steps up the social ladder. As with bread, beef, carrots and coffee, it would be easy to assume that the practice of...

The U.K. newspaper published a list of “the world’s 17 greatest cities for food” on Sunday and the Vietnamese capital grabbed second spot, after Tokyo. “Hanoi’s compact old center is arguably the better place to sample the balance of salt, sweet, sour and spice in Vietnamese cuisine,” it said, comparing the city with the popular southern metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City, which is “more international”. Hanoi is where one can take to the streets and eat like a local, it said. The city offers some of the most popular Vietnamese dishes such as “banh mi”, a baguette usually filled with grilled pork, meatballs or cold cuts, cucumber, cilantro, pickled carrots, liver pâté and a swipe of mayonnaise, or “com...

Bun Cha Recipe

by Jonathan Doidge @ Hungry To Escape

This dish isn’t overly hard, the trickiest bit is cutting and cooking the belly to perfection so each piece is crunchy! Essentially there are 4 elements here, the pork, the soup, the herbs and the vermicelli. I will separate the sections for ease, but I recommend getting the meat marinated, then start making the soup, you can just heat it up on the stove when ready. The rice vermicelli takes a few minutes to cook and the herbs need to be picked and washed – you can do this whenever. The Dipping Soup part of the recipe: Make this BEFORE you start barbecuing the pork. Once you start the barbecue, you need to watch it and we don’t want any distractions. Ingredients: 3 cloves garlic, crushed 1 piece of green papaya (peeled, without seeds) -thinly sliced and cut into 5 x 5 cm squares 1 small carrot (peeled, chop the top and bottom, cut 5 mm grooves down the length of the carrot, you should get 5 around the whole carrot, then slice) 1 small chili (sliced thin) 1 cup fish sauce 1 cup sugar 1 cup vinegar 2 cups of water 1 Tbsp lime juice pepper to taste Method: Mix everything […]

Hanoi’s notorious black market, where anything goes

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

Don’t expect a receipt if you’re looking to buy anything from this market. Most Hanoians would be flummoxed if you asked them where Hoa Binh Market is, but if you asked them about Chợ Giời, it would be a different story. The name Chợ Giời tells a story itself as its earliest vendors used to gather in an open-air spot to sell pretty much everything they owned, hence the name “Giời”, meaning sky, God and outdoors in Vietnamese. The market is believed to have opened in 1955 on the corner of two streets, but since then it has expanded to more than four streets and two big alleys along the busy thoroughfares of Hue and Hang Bai. In Chợ Giời, vendors sell everything from car parts and metal springs to TV remotes. Some old, some new, some possibly stolen. The majority of the goods are mechanical items, and here you can find the tiniest screwdrivers to rare 1980’s amplifiers all under the same roof. Following the war and the subsidy period, Chợ Giời was split down into different departments. Yen Bai 2 Street was known for its CDs and DVDs  —  before the Internet and Youtube changed all that. Nguyen Cong Tru Street draws vendors selling...

Autumn spirit served up in the form of rice flakes by Hanoi village

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

Like pumpkins and candy at Halloween, rice flakes are a must during the fall in the capital. It is an unwritten rule that when you talk about autumn in Hanoi, you have to mention rice flakes. No one knows when the flat sticky rice first became an autumn delicacy in the capital, but the art of making the tasty snack has been well-preserved for more than a century in Me Tri Village. More than 50 households in this village have their fires burning for rice flakes twice a year, depending on the harvest season. Experience shows that rice picked during fall makes the best rice flakes because it is sweeter and more aromatic. The sticky rice used for rice flakes should come from young plants. Me Tri Village in Nam Tu Liem District and Vong Village in Cau Giay District are the most famous places in the north for this treat. These women are removing the grains from paddy flowers. The grains are soaked in water. The tailings, which float to the surface, are removed. The grains are roasted for two hours.  Then they are ground under a wooden pestle, and the ground grains are screened again to remove all the husks. The final product is wrapped in lotus leaves, and these green-yellow...

Saigon to Hanoi by Motorbike: 5 Suggested Routes

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

Riding from Saigon to Hanoi by motorbike is probably the most popular road trip in Vietnam, and it’s unquestionably one of the best ways to experience the country. For years, travellers simply took the most obvious route: Highway 1. Today, however, thanks to ambitious road building programs, there are far more scenic, pleasant and less trodden ways to ride between the country’s two main cities. Having ridden south to north on numerous occasions (the first time, predictably, on Highway 1), I’ve put together the following 5 suggested motorbike routes from Saigon to Hanoi, so that travellers who are planning this road trip have more of an idea of the kind of options available to them. 1. THE CLASSIC: Total Distance: 2,770km Average Duration: 2-4 weeks Road Conditions: paved rural & coastal back-roads, new & old highways Navigation: mostly simple, some tricky bits in central areas Scenery: coast, highlands, mountains, limestone, cities, villages, cultural sites DESCRIPTION: Weaving a course between coast and highlands, The Classic route is equal parts beach and mountain. Quiet, stunning coastal roads in the south and central provinces yield to a mighty landscape of limestone karsts on the Ho Chi Minh Road in the north-central region. Popular towns and sights, such as Mui...

Bun Cha Ha Noi - Hungry To Escape


Hungry To Escape

Where oh where do I begin with Bun Cha. This regional dish of Hanoi basically ticks every box as far as flavor and texture are concerned. If you haven’t heard of it, and many haven’t, it’s essentially a put-it-together-yourself type meal, sorta like a taco, but oh so different. At it’s heart, its pork patties which contain shallots, ginger, onion, sugar, grilled over open flame. Pork belly (cha), which receives roughly the same treatment. A dipping soup containing slices of green papaya and carrot with is essentially a diluted Nouc Cham, (Vietnamese dipping sauce).Rice vermicelli noodles (bun) and assorted herbs. This is how it is served, you mix it all together in whichever quantity you desire. These smokey, caramelized, juicy, sweet pork nuggets are dripping with the sweet and sour soup from which they were dunked. You then add noodles for a bit of body and follow it up with a bouquet of Vietnamese herbs that add so much complexity. Eaten all at once its a symphony of flavor and texture. The crunch of the herbs, the softness of the noodles, the meatiness of the pork patties and the fattiness of that salty belly. It’s a combination that is addictive …

Hanoi’s lantern festival

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

An exhibition has revived the old spirit as Vietnam counts down to the full moon on Wednesday night. Lanterns for sale on Hang Gai Street during the Mid-Autumn Festival in 1926. The festival peaks on the full moon of the eighth lunar month, which falls on Wednesday this week. Children are drawn to a fish lantern outside a shop on Hang Gai in the Old Quarter. Star-shaped lanterns, the most popular toy during the festival, are made on the sidewalk. A wooden fighting roosters toy in a photo captured in 1937. Animals made from rice flour were popular in Hanoi nearly a century ago. These toys are still on sale in Vietnamese cities, but they now appeal more to nostalgic adults. A lion dance troupe prepares for their performance on Hang Thiec Street. Women make mooncakes on Hang Duong Street, known as the city’s sweets street, in a photo in 1928. A family offers a festival feast on their altar. A crab lantern. The Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences is displaying the photos at the Hanoi Ancient House, 87 Ma May, Hoan Kiem District.

Green lotus tea

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

Green lotus tea has other names: trà sen, chè sen or chè ướp sen (in Vietnamese) Vietnamese lotus tea is a type of green tea that already absorbed the scent of lotus. Lotus is a type of flower that grows in a lake, and it symbolizes beauty, purity, and good fortune in Vietnam.  Traditionally, workers will row out to the lake in the middle of the night when nectar of the lotus is at its fullest. Then, they will carefully open up all petals of the flower, fill it with green tea leaves (without making it wet), tie the petals together tightly with string, and let tea sits and absorbs the scents overnight. To collect the tea, workers have to row out to the lake again in the morning, open up the flower petals, and harvest the natural lotus scented green tea. Due to the natural process of making lotus tea, it is considered an art in Vietnam. HISTORY Lotus tea was originally created for King Tu Duc during the 19th century Nguyen Dynasty, but the people also love the art of making tea and it became a custom for them to take their boats out onto the ponds and...

Pho Recipe

by Jonathan Doidge @ Hungry To Escape

Cooking Pho needn’t be that daunting, it’s not actually that hard, its just time consuming, the real skill is tasting and seasoning accordingly. Considering it costs 10 bucks a bowl at your local Vietnamese restaurant, would you bother!! YES, don’t be lazy, make a bunch of broth and freeze it and then defrost for a midweek meal. I wish I could say I had some exotic story on how I acquired this recipe, the truth be told, it’s the combination of a couple of recipes, including one from a cooking school in Hoi An.   Ingredients 1kg – 1.5kg beef bones (neck will do) (washed) 500g oxtail (washed) 5 dry Chinese apples 5 star anise (roasted in dry pan till aromatic) 1 stick of cinnamon  (roasted in dry pan till aromatic) 3 cloves  (roasted in dry pan till aromatic) 10cm piece of ginger 3 red shallots 1 head of garlic 1 onion thinly sliced 2-3 tsp salt 2-3 tsp pepper 1 tbsp sugar (Chinese rock sugar if you can find it) 3 tbsp fish sauce Accompaniment Bean shoots Thai Basil Coriander (preferably saw-tooth) spring onion 2 limes, wedged birds-eye chili 500g fresh pho noodles (not the dry ones if you […]

Bun Cha Ha Noi

by Jonathan Doidge @ Hungry To Escape

Where oh where do I begin with Bun Cha. This regional dish of Hanoi basically ticks every box as far as flavor and texture are concerned. If you haven’t heard of it, and many haven’t, it’s essentially a put-it-together-yourself type meal, sorta like a taco, but oh so different. At it’s heart, its pork patties which contain shallots, ginger, onion, sugar, grilled over open flame. Pork belly (cha), which receives roughly the same treatment. A dipping soup containing slices of green papaya and carrot with is essentially a diluted Nouc Cham, (Vietnamese dipping sauce).Rice vermicelli noodles (bun) and assorted herbs. This is how it is served, you mix it all together in whichever quantity you desire. These smokey, caramelized, juicy, sweet pork nuggets are dripping with the sweet and sour soup from which they were dunked. You then add noodles for a bit of body and follow it up with a bouquet of Vietnamese herbs that add so much complexity. Eaten all at once its a symphony of flavor and texture. The crunch of the herbs, the softness of the noodles, the meatiness of the pork patties and the fattiness of that salty belly. It’s a combination that is addictive […]

Six reasons why summer (kinda) rhymes with sugar in Vietnam

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

There are millions of ways to enjoy the cool, sweet taste of summer in Vietnam, so here are some of our favorites. Che The sweet, slippery soup is one of the most iconic Vietnamese desserts. There are dozens of versions, ranging from a simple glass of just lotus seeds to a rainbow of beans, roots, cassava and jelly cubes. Crowded che stands can be found in most big markets across the country, including Nam Dong in Hanoi and Ben Thanh in Ho Chi Minh City. For something different, tourists can try the one served at the Cambodian market in the southern city. The shop is owned by a Vietnamese man who grew up in Cambodia but returned in the 1970s, serving the best of both Cambodian and Vietamese desserts. A serving usually costs $1 or less. Ice-cream in a coconut shell One scoop of ice-cream for the summer, or two? Well, it might be easier if you just have it all in a coconut.

Pour le reste des ingrédients, je n'aurai aucun mal à en trouver dans mon petit supermarché habituel. Aujourd'hui, Minh-Anh m'a mis l'eau à la bouche en parlant de curry de poulet et je suis immédiatement venue voir la recette sur votre site qu'elle me conseille régulièrement lorsque je lui demande une recette qu'elle évoque. Je pense que nous allons bien nous régaler comme pour tous les plats dont j'ai prélevé les recettes ici (toujours sur les conseils de Minh-Anh). Merci et à bientôt.

Babi Guling

by Jonathan Doidge @ Hungry To Escape

Babi Guling or Pig on the Spit. This fragrant, spicy, crispy skinned, fire roasted porky delight is a Balinese celebratory meal. It’s odd that in a Muslim country, such a dish could exist, but the Balinese, unlike the majority of Indonesia, are 90% Hindu and they love their pork! Basically they take a pig and gut it, reserve the blood for sausage, they then fill its stomach cavity with spice paste called “Basa Gede” which contains shallots, garlic, ginger, galangal, kencur (or lesser Galangal), turmeric, candle nut, chili, coriander, pepper, salam leaves (Indonesian bay leaf) , salt and shrimp paste. They sew the pigs stomach up, stick it on a spit and then rotate the pig over smoldering coffee wood whilst brushing it liberally with coconut water.  The fat and skin crackle and the meat is imparted an all-important coffee wood smoky flavour! Once done, it is then sliced up and served. You get some meat, some spice paste, rice, snake beans and the best bit, impossibly crunchy wafer thin crackling!! The  meat is smoky and deliciously moist, it carries that aromatic Basa Gede essence. The skin is wafer thin and crunches as you bite into it, the Base Gede […]

Pad Thai

by Jonathan Doidge @ Hungry To Escape

Ah Pad Thai, that Thai street food staple for any traveler on a budget. It is actually a fairly simple meal in theory, but it’s execution has to be perfect and for that, one needs a wok burning hotter than the flames of hell! Basically it’s fried noodles, mixed with tofu, eggs, shrimp, garlic, shallot and a cracked egg. What gives it the real flavor is the sauce made from tamarind, fish sauce, sugar and chili. Sounds simple yes? BUT due to the simplicity of the dish, the key element, the noodle, has to be perfect! They need to be, as the Italians put it, aldente, or in a Pad Thai, chewy! Overcooked noodles that stew in the wok and get soggy will ruin a Pad Thai every time, hence the extreme heat needed to produce this dish. Like every Thai meal, its the flavor combination, sweet, salty, sour and spicy. The texture is just as important, those noodles need to be chewy, the bean shoots add that crunch. Combine everything in your mouth and its the sweet tangyness that hits you first, followed by those textures, your tongue is caressed by those noodles, the crunch of the bean shoots […]

24 Hours in Phnom Penh

by Jonathan Doidge @ Hungry To Escape

I know what you’re thinking, yeah it’s just another big dirty Asian city, but you need to visit this place, if only to visit the killing fields and the genocide museum. We as a human race can’t ignore the atrocities that still occur today, we can’t simply close our eyes and brush it off as a problem in a country I’ll probably never visit! You need to see it, you need to know what happened and appreciate why it could potentially happen again! If we ignore our mistakes, we are bound to repeat them in the future 0900 – 1000 My advice would be to hire Tuk Tuk driver from the airport and negotiate a price for the day, get him to take you to your hotel, he can wait while you check in, drop your bags and then he can take you wherever you want. I recommend staying in the area around riverfront, it’s close to the royal palace and national museum and has numerous food and drink options. You also get a nice breeze off the Mekong in the afternoon and one of the prettier spots in Phnom Penh. 1000-1300 Your first stop should be the killing fields, this is without doubt one […]

How I Fell in Love With Berlin

by Jonathan Doidge @ Hungry To Escape

I first visited Berlin about 5 years ago, it was grey, windy and poured with rain. I checked out Brandenburg, Checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin Wall and got the hell out, without any plan of ever returning. That was my mistake, I didn’t invest any time or effort into getting to know the real Berlin. So, 6 months ago when a friend of mine was living there, she invited me to come to Berlin and see the city through the eyes of a local, experience it properly, not as tourist but as Berliner, what I discovered was a city of tolerance, beautiful green space, stunning architecture and a population of genuinely warm people embracing every second of life. It left me questioning how I see the world, what is important to me, and opened my eyes to a new way of life. So, one sunny Brisbane afternoon, a friend announced that he is going to Berlin for a month, and I should join him. A mutual friend of ours was living there and it was going to be a perfect opportunity to get connected into the social scene. I ummed and ahh’d the decision, I hate the cold and the wet […]

Seeking Nirvana in Ubud

by Jonathan Doidge @ Hungry To Escape

Forget what you know about Bali. The biggest misconception about this island paradise is that it is a debaucherous cesspool of nightclubs, beer, Bintang singlets, cheap tattoos, prostitutes and fake sunglasses. A cheap holiday destination accessible to even the least adventurous travelers. Loud Australians swilling beer and starting fights. This is not the Bali I grew up loving, it’s a sad fact that Kuta and Legian have drifted off in this direction, yet another Patong or Kao San. But Bali is so much more, get away from Kuta, the beach resorts, head north into the mountains, you can still find the original Bali, a respectful culture, steeped in spiritualism and one with nature. Head to Ubud. I have been visiting Bali since the early 80’s and boy has it changed, some parts more than others, sadly, not for the better! Ubud, however, has kept most of its charm, despite all mass tourism and commercialism, Ubud still maintains its reputation as a quaint artisan village. Abundant with culture and spiritualism, its population and size might have swelled but it still feels like a small Balinese village, a place you can get lost for a while. Don’t get me wrong, tourist numbers have surged […]

Tu prends un filet mignon, coupe le en petit morceaux, fais revenir dans une poêle avec de la sauce de poisson et des condiments jusqu'à ce que les morceaux soient secs, très secs. Ca demande un bon bout de temps. Ensuite il faut les passer au pilon pour les réduire en petites fibres. Excellent pour manger avec du riz. Très bonne conservation car sec.
