Delicious Vietnam #13 – May 2011 Recap

I’m so honored to host the fabulous blogging evnet – Delicious Vietname this month. Anh from A food lovers’ journey and Hong and Kim from Ravenous Couple are the creators of the event and they have certainly done a fantastic job in the last year!!! What a great way to get to know other food bloggers and home cooks! Thanks for everyone participating and your high standard of recipes and reviews!

Here is the round up for #13.

Lotus Stem Salad with Shrimp - Goi Ngo Sen

From Sacramento, California USA, Doug at Javaholic, gives us a beautiful and refreshing Lotus Stem Salad with Shrimp – Goi Ngo Sen. Through this recipe, I recalled my memory of eating stir-fried lotus root in China. It’s really been a while! For me, lotus is a texture food, rather than flavour food. It’s like tofu, what it tastes like really depends on how you cook it and what you cook it with. I also like the idea of using prawn crackers to go with fresh shrimp. Crunchy combined with tender meat, a little bit of contrast in this dish too. Of course I’m always a fan of Doug’s food photography! Just beautiful!

Spicy Tomato Egg Drop Soup

From Baltimore, MD USA, Lan at Angry Asian Creations, presented us a Spicy Tomato Egg Drop Soup. I think this dish would be perfect for a lunch on the weekend. I can imagine the egg yolk mix with the soup, melting in my month…. mmm yum!
