Foodie’s Bucket List
Just a few months ago, a photo of President Barrack Obama and Anthony Bourdain in an eatery in Hanoi went viral. They are not enjoying a five-star meal, but a simple and authentic noodle dish that has a price of $6.
The city and the entire country is known for their rich culinary heritage and multitude of street food options. Their spring rolls are not to be missed. The banh mi, or their traditional sandwich, can also be seen being sold in the streets. You should also try their pho tiu noodles, a sweet and sour soup with pork and fish sauce.
Rolling landscapes and beautiful coastlines are not the only things that you can enjoy in the French Riviera. Specifically in Provence, you will never go hungry and you will enjoy good food during your travels. One of the dishes that you should try is daube, which is also known as a poor man’s stew. But if there is just one dish that you should try, it would be ratatouille.
This is a delicious vegetable casserole, which commonly consists of peppers, aubergines, courgettes, onions, tomatoes, and herbs. If you are staying in self-catered accommodation, you could try to replicate this dish yourself. Make sure you get the best ingredients from a local farmers market.
