A nerd. A grumpy child. A Viet getting lost in Toronto and my endless love for food and life.

Shio Ramen - It was a decent place to eat, reasonable prices and delicious food. Kinton is always crowded and isn’t much better. And I pumped into more Japanese here, does it mean the food is authentic? 

Rhyus, Toronto
Glad that I was back before summer ends (: 
1. Grilled chicken by One Drake Fifty (Nothing can beat wings, cold beer and summer heat!) 
2. BoSsäm by Momofuku (Pork butt with ginger scallion sauce, bibb lettuce, napa kimchi and ssäm sauce)

Về nhà ăn rau sống không ngừng nghỉ. Bánh cuốn cũng ăn với húng lủi luôn, tuyệt vời. Mà rau ở Đà Nẵng lá có xíu xìu xiu dễ thương tợn (:
Mình quyết định rồi, sau này sẽ đặt tên cho lũ con ở nhà là Húng Lủi, Húng Quế, Húng Cay.
Bánh tráng Đống Đa Đà Nẵng
Bẻ miếng bánh tráng cái rụp, chấm xí mắm nêm, thong dong vừa nhai vừa nhìn mùa hè rơi qua ô cửa

Mưa về trên khúc hát lắng u buồn đợi bóng hình aiNhư tìm về giấc mơ xa, mây mờ giờ là kỉ niệm.Mùa thu lặng lẽ trôi đi mùa đông lạc giữa tình yêuXuân về như con nắng hạ bốn mùa mưa vẫn đợi ai
Bún bò Đà Lạt: Beef vermicelli Dalat version. What’s the difference comparing to Hue’s? The dish is eaten with thin-sliced cabbage and the vermicelli is a tiny little bit smaller. 
Bún bò Loan, Quang Trung 
Pho in the pure Hanoi way, no beansprout or greens to eat with. The only side dish you can find is raw onion, which is sooooooooo good!

"Missing someone is like hearinga name sung quietly from somewherebehind you. Even after you knowno one is there, you keep looking backuntil on a silver afternoon like thisyou find yourself breathing just enoughto make a small dent in the air.”

It has been awhile. 
L’Usine, Saigon 
Hủ tiếu xào thập cẩm (Stir-fried rice vermicelli with all the things you can find in the kitchen) 
Good food can cheer you up, trust me. 
Tân Lạc Cung, Sài Gòn
Gỏi cá mai (Little fish ceviche) 
Holy moly, we were incredibly lucky to randomly pick this place for lunch. The dish was amazing, fresh, beautifully seasoned, and the sauce definitely boosted the taste off the roof! Phương Trang, Hồ Tràm 
Coming back to the ocean. My happiness ain’t that complicated :) 
Bánh canh cua 
Ngô Đức Kế, Sài Gòn 
Hủ tiếu khô (I’m in a serious need for hủ tiếu)
Reading about this 50-year-old rice vermicelli from an old book made my imagination go wild. So, two girls wandered in the middle of Saigon under the temperature of 38 degree C looking for this germ.   
Cả Cần, Sài Gòn 
Hủ tiếu Mỹ Tho,
A reunion with my friend, talking about 20-year-old girls conquering life (: (And hello there red big shrimp buddy, no time no see, I miss you lots!)
