“Nice, sitting on a small low chair and having simple dining at a corner of the Old Quarter”

VIETNAM | Thursday, 8 April 2010 | Views [673]

I had opportunity to have Pho, the typical dish in Vietnam. I knew now why Vietnamese people, especially women have good shape. Their foods always have vegetable as main ingredients. Pho is something like noodle in Thailand but the thing is it is very delicious when you ate it in such environment (yeh, we at "moment"), in the time we traveled. It is a feeling of getting close to local way of people there.

It was quite amazing that Pho is everywhere, at almost every corner at the Hanoi's Old Quarter. I had learned some local words to survive during my trip, especially for Pho menu. Let's see

Pho Bo means pho with beef

Pho Ga means pho with chicken

Ummm another frigthening thing for me is Cho--- dog meat. If you see a signpost above  shops saying "cho", remember, they sells dogmeat, or has to do something with dog, for sure.

Umm I couldn't remember quite well for other words. I had noted them in my diary and if I have some free time, I will share with you!
