Love the bamboo when stewed with pork or local chicken.
I'm really big into banana flower as well. Always pre-cut, nice colour, never oxidised and the VN banana flower salads are outstanding.
Diep Ca is another favourite leaf for salads.
I do like eating my late night fried grasshoppers in Bangkok though. Great with a beer or 4


Nice article. Well done. It's refreshing to see coverage of some of the less commonly mentioned vegetables of the Vietnamese kitchen.


Yes, please do teach us more about the vegetables and herbs.


Shane - loving your passion for Viet cuisine...is diep ca that fishy-flavoured leaf...if so, I'm yet to acquire the love for that one :-(

CGW & JB - thanks...I suspect I could do a few more pieces like this.

You may believe these four proverbs:
Whom the gods destroy, they first make mad.
Life is a leaf of paper white, thereon each of us may write his word or two.
On earth there is nothing great but man; in the man there is nothing great but mind.
Everything ought to be beautiful in a human being: face, and dress, and soul, and ideas.

Other aspects of the cuisine here are much maligned. Dog meat is an obvious example which gets a pretty unanimous thumbsdown from the food press and food tourists alike. It's a place that most westerners simply do not want to go (for the record, yes I have...) but they almost certainly do want to express their abject horror about the practice of eating dog.
