Sounds brilliant! I want that! (If I'm not having pre-hurricane grits, just in case) Are the onions crisp and fried or cooked soft into the rice?

How crisp and inviting these are. When I was at culinary school, I had a chef who insisted we ate with our eyes. Yes, I think we has right!

I love xoi. Seeing your blog makes me miss some of the Vietnamese snacks I got to eat last year. I remember a lady selling various sticky rice in one push cart compare to Boston I have to wait for Saturdays to buy some.


oh my god you've made me miss Ha Noi & its deliciousness so badly!


You've done it again. I'm drooling over your photo. Drooling and dreaming of xoi.

Your blog is delicious. That's why I've awarded you with the Versatile Blogger Award. http://chrisgalvinwriter.wordpress.com/2011/09/24/seven-blogs-and-seven-things/

Looks yum. I'd love to try excited foods.


Xoi. I love peanuts and rice. How much more they put together.


What a beautiful website!


That looks completely amazing. Wish I had that for lunch today.

So many kind of Xoi you can find in Vietnam. There's also fried xoi that you can enjoy with chicken. Anyhow it does fill up one stomach quickly !


Xoi! I want to try it!

No offense, but if there's a facebook like button, it'll be much easier for me to share.


Interesting - in Saigon and Da Nang they call the common white corn "bắp nếp", nếp being uncooked sticky rice. Yellow sweet corn is called "bắp Mỹ", or American corn.

I find bắp nếp inferior in terms of taste and texture, but it's ok when it's cooked in che bap or bap xao.
