Must-Try Regional Delicacies of Vietnam.

Vietnam culinary scene is vast, stretching from North Vietnam to South Vietnam, with each and every region having its own unique, signature dish. Vietnamese might share a common tough, but Vietnam’s cuisines are what truly unite the country as a whole. Food is the essence of its people, from the recipes to the ingredients, food can tell us many things about a culture and its values. By taking a look at some regional delicacies of Vietnam, we will uncover the hidden beauty within each of Vietnam’s regions. 

It’s hard not to mention Hanoi when discussing Northern Vietnamese food. A melting pot of French, Vietnamese, and part Chinese culinary, Hanoi still has a deep connection to its’ roots in Vietnamese traditions. Here, Bún Chả undoubtedly reigns supreme as the queen of Northern Vietnamese food. Chả is often grilled meatballs, although any authentic Bún Chả vendor will cook its’ Chả over an open flame, smoking and searing it just right so the colours reach a pleasant dark brown, while oozing with juicy fat. Bún, you will find out, is a catch-all word for Vietnamese white noodles, used in a variety of soup-based food. In this particular case, Bún in Bún Chả is thin and long, sticky but always fresh and almost flavourless. A bowl of Bún Chả depends on its’ sauce, an iconic bowl of diluted fish sauce, accompanied with garlic and chili pepper. Bún Chả is very subtle in its’ delivery, its’ only distinction is a salty overtone of the fish sauce. Earthy and natural, Bún Chả represents Hanoi’s values in a traditional, simplistic lifestyle, using the minimal amount of ingredients but highlighting the possibilities within.

Let’s travel to Central Vietnam, where the hills are bountiful and lush with life. Unlike North Vietnam’s limited access to ingredients, Central Vietnam’s cuisine is always colorful, exotic, and varied.  To create a full menu for Central Vietnam would be almost impossible, as people here often eat many dishes per meal, and had already memorized every dish by heart. Nothing displays Hue’s emphasis on assortment as Bánh Huế, which includes dozens of different types of cuisine. Often served in small dishes, Bánh Huế is meant to be consumed over a long meal, with the goal of trying out as many different types of Bánh Huế as possible. These are delicious snacks by themselves, such as Bánh Bột Lọc, with its iconic red color due to the shrimp wrapped inside a transparent layer of flour. Or maybe try out Bánh Bèo, where the shrimp is fried and diced to be placed on top of wheat flour, drizzled in fish sauce.

Saigon is Vietnam’s central hub for technology and economic advancements. This is why Saigon’s most well-known cuisine: Bánh Mì, has successful become the international symbol for Vietnamese cuisine. In Saigon, hundreds of Bánh Mì street vendors scatter the streets. Every Bánh Mì shop is famous for its own unique interpretation of the inclusive food. Bánh Mì represents Saigon’s flexibility and ever changing landscape, it’s components are yours to invent and combine, its’ taste depends on the maker’s preferences. If there’s one unifying aspect of Bánh Mì Saigon, it would be the hot sauce. Saigon’s food is generally spicier than Northern foods, perhaps because chili pepper grows extremely well in tropical weather. That’s why in every Saigon’s street vendor, you’ll always find a bright red bottle of hot sauce nearby.

Saigonese are also known for their sweet tooth, with their wide array of Chè and deserts. Mostly made from tapioca or melted sugar, Chè is the combination of fresh fruits and a sweet, syrup paste, a perfect desert food. Here’s a tip, for the best Vietnamese snacks and dessert foods, go to any High School’s front gate in Saigon. There, you’ll find high school students flocking like birds around trolley full of Chè and other sweets.

HOME’s menu is dedicated to exploring the diverse landscape of Vietnamese culinary. Every iconic regional dish can be found in HOME, prepared and cooked using traditional recipes and fresh ingredients.

All You Can Eat Concept Arrives in Saigon – But How Does It Work?

Vietnamese cuisine is vast, eclectic and unique, where specialties vary through different provinces. Hanoi in know for its Bun Cha, Hoi An for its Cau Lau My and Danang for its vast array of fresh seafood.

For many people visiting Vietnam, this can be justifiably intimidating. You may wonder how you’ll go about trying all of the food that you want to eat, or where to find the best possible version.

Fortunately Ngon Villa have decided to launch their revolutionary dining concept in Saigon, sharing their broad range of traditional Vietnamese cuisine further south of the country.

Up until now, Ngon Villa could only be found in Hanoi, Danang and Hoi An. Due to the overwhelming success of our unique dining style, we’ve decided to share the wealth with Saigon. Ho Chi Minh locals will recognize two more restaurants from the Viet Deli family, Home Finest and The Chopsticks. We’ll be bringing the high standards set within these restaurants to Ngon Villa, using the finest in locally sourced ingredients.

We believe that the unique concept behind Ngon Villa is fundamentally lacking in Ho Chi Minh City. This concept gained a lot of attention in Ngon Villa throughout Vietnam’s three other major cities. This is why we’ve decided to take it further south. Our all-you-can-eat concept gives diners a chance to try as many of our traditional Vietnamese dishes as they like. This is not an all-you-can-eat buffet, however. All dishes will be made to order and brought to the table, making sure you get the freshest meals available.

Ngon Villa sets itself apart from other restaurants by offering the chance for diners to try such a large array of Vietnam’s unique cuisine. Each dish is smaller than your average meal, meaning that you’ll be able to try a larger range of traditional Vietnamese cuisine, at the price of a single meal.

Like our restaurants in Hanoi, Hoi An and Danang, we’ll offer local specialties on our menu that you won’t be able to find throughout the rest of the country, cooked with the usual Saigon touch. To book a table in our newly opened restaurant, have a look at our Ngon Villa website, where you’ll find the prices for our all-you-can-eat menus.

Meet Executive Chef Thien, The Master Chef Behind Viet Deli

Chef Thien is a young man passionate about his culture, and, more than anything, the cuisine that is so deeply embedded within it.

“We want to introduce the world to Vietnamese culture,” Chef Thien explains, “it’s a culture that has its own unique, traditional traits.”

Thien continues to explain that, rightly or wrongly, people have a certain idea of Vietnamese cuisine that he is looking to change. “The view from international guests and customers,” he states, “is that they perceive all Vietnamese cuisine to be street food, but it can be incredibly simple, incredibly diverse and, also lively and exciting.”

Guests will often want to experience Vietnamese cuisine like a local, to gain an authentic experience, and this is something that Thien is trying to encourage. He explains that he wants their experience “to be like a close friend visiting our home” and to show them the connection between culture and cuisine. Thien believes this is “how they can enjoy food in a traditional way.”

Thien explains that, for him, this is one of the many benefits to working with Viet Deli. A major part of Viet Deli’s mission is to share an unmatched passion for Vietnamese cuisine. “That’s what makes the company so unique,” Thien explains, “the company’s goal is to spread this traditional food across the world.”

This is, he believes, what makes Viet Deli the ideal working environment for him to embody the values of traditional Vietnamese cuisine. “The company’s vision is to promote traditional Vietnamese products,” Thien explains. “After three years of working here, I can see that it’s a dynamic company, which provides the ideal working environment for young people like me, who have a different idea of hospitality, particularly restaurants and customers.”

Thien admits that this is a part of the challenge for the company. It’s a highly ambitious idea, to promote traditional Vietnamese cuisine across the world, whilst trying to support a young and dynamic work force, with chefs like Thien. As Chef Thien admits, however, it is a worthwhile goal.

Chef Tùng: “I owe a lot of my experience to my family”

Chef Tung, in many ways, has the most challenging job at Viet Deli. Tasked with overseeing quality control and reporting to the board of directors, Tung is responsible for not only ensuring Viet Deli’s restaurants maintain a high standard, but for spreading the word of Vietnamese cuisine throughout the outside world.

“This incredible ambition was initially intimidating, despite me having more than 30-years of experience in kitchens,” Tung admits.

“This high pressure, did, however, rekindle my passion for traditional Vietnamese cuisine, spurring me on with the aim of introducing an abundance of traditional foods to everyone throughout the country.”

Chef Tung explains that, to him, the success of Viet Deli’s ambition is obvious, even after just three years. “This isn’t just in Home Finest,” he explains, “but across all of the Viet Deli restaurants, where the quality of the service and the food satisfy the customers every time.”

This is something that Tung comes back to throughout our interview, the “quality of the food” being produced by himself and the team. Tung explains that, he aims “to ensure that each dish is marinated with traditional aromas and spices. We aim to take your basic herbs and spices, found in any market across Vietnam, and create something new and original, yet heavily embedded in the past.”

When asked how Tung and Viet Deli plan on achieving recognition from the rest of the world, he explains that they want to introduce something new, “not only to the Vietnamese” he explains, “but to tourists too. We want people visiting Vietnam to understand the copious amounts of flavors available in Vietnamese cuisine, along with all of the fresh ingredients used.”

As a leading figure in traditional Vietnamese cuisine, Chef Tung has a range of experiences that have shaped his career, but first and foremost he says, “I owe a lot of my experience to my family.”

He goes on to explain, “I’ve learnt a lot from my wife just from the everyday food. She creates simple, delicious meals daily that make me appreciate the most ordinary ingredients.”

Chef Tung explains that this is the idea he and Viet Deli are trying to replicate, to get to the heart of Vietnam’s home cooked meals. “You’ll find most of our dishes to be inspired by Vietnam’s street food,” he explains, “which are really all family run businesses anyway. This is what we want to introduce the world to, the soul of Vietnamese cuisine within home-cooked food.”

Top Dishes for Seafood Lovers at Home

You’re never far away from fresh seafood in Vietnam, a country wrapped by coral reefs to provide a diverse mixture of fish and shellfish. When it comes to Vietnamese cuisine, we like to keep everything fresh, purchasing all of our ingredients from our local markets, alive and kicking. This makes for the freshest seafood available, be it from heritage port cities like Hoi An, to cities further from the coast, like Hanoi.

Home Finest – Saigon

Pan-seared seabass with passion fruit sauce

The perfect fish for seafood lovers with a desire for strong tastes, the Saigon seabass are locally caught, with a buttery taste and a meaty texture. We use a passion fruit sauce to compliment the strong texture to create a dish bursting with fresh flavors.

 Wok-fried crab with vermicelli and spices

We’ve plucked fresh crab straight from the sea and fried it with some of the fantastic spices that Vietnamese cuisine is known for and then paired it with Vietnam’s famous vermicelli noodles.

 Wok-fried baby squid with ‘mam’ sauce

While our squid is a typical seafood delicacy, what really stands out in this dish is the ‘mam’ sauce. Vietnam’s famously fishy sauce, not to be confused with the controversial ‘mam tom’, is made up of salty flavors from fish sauce, spice from chilli, and is ever so slightly sweet.

 Home – Hoi An

 Grilled catch of the day with Hanoi’s herbs and rice paper roll

As a famous ancient port, Hoi An is known to have the finest seafood in Vietnam. Our chefs venture down to the local market each morning to handpick the catch of the day, ensuring the freshest seafood dish around.

 Grilled oysters on charcoal with cilantro sauce & shredded coconut

We’ve taken a couple of typical Vietnamese ingredients and added them to some locally farmed oysters. You’ll find cilantro makes up a large portion of Vietnamese cuisine, with dishes like pho and banh mi chock full of them.

 Grilled squid with green chili sauce

As a central Vietnamese city, Hoi An is fortunate to have a mix of ingredients available right on the doorstep. Hoi An is also close enough to Halong Bay to make the most of their signature, freshly caught squid.

 Home Moc – Hanoi

 Marinated pomelo and dried squid salad

While Hanoi may be a little further away from the ocean than cities like Saigon or Hoi An, one ingredient we do have in abundance is pomelo, which we believe adds a delicious and fruity twist to our dried squid.

Caramelized prawns with crispy garlic

We didn’t want to finish this list without including one of the key ingredients to Vietnamese cuisine: garlic. You’ll find garlic as a main ingredient throughout some of our most popular dishes, and it brings a rounded flavor to our sweet caramelized prawns.

Top Dishes for Meat Lovers at the Home Restaurants

Vietnam is something of a meat-eater’s paradise. You’ll find that more than most of Vietnam’s best loved dishes are packed full of beef, pork or chicken, like pho or bun cha. As we are representatives of traditional Vietnamese cuisine, we like to showcase the very best that Vietnam has to offer throughout all Home restaurants. At Home, we take the finest cuts of meat, all of which are free-range where available, and turn them into exemplary traditional meals.

Home and Home Moc – Hanoi

Deep fried crispy pork belly with “mắm” sauce

We’ve taken that much-loved pork belly crunch to another level with this classic dish. By deep frying the meat, you’ll start with an initial crumbly outer layer that slowly moves into the tender meat – as dishes for meat lovers go, this one is an absolute must!

 Baked herbal chicken in clay pot

We’ve borrowed from the south for this dish. Saigon has a long tradition of baking meats in clay pots and for good reason. Using local herbs and a strictly traditional approach to cooking, this dish serves up caramelized chicken, fragrant with aromatic herbs and guaranteed to make even the most ardent vegetarian jealous.

Grilled beef with galangal root and lemongrass

We’ve borrowed from Thai, Indonesian, and Malaysian cooking for this dish. While Vietnamese cuisine is more prone to galangal’s cousin, ginger, we’ve combined it with a typical Vietnamese herb, lemongrass, for our own twist on the root, giving the beef a flavorsome kick that’s hard to resist.

 Home – Hoi An

 Wok fried beef with chili and straw mushrooms

Hoi An is known for its abundance of free-range meats and is regarded as one of Vietnam’s top destinations for foodies. With this in mind, we’re proud to use the finest cuts of locally sourced beef for our dishes and we’re confident that you’ll see why when you taste the beef.

Braised pork ribs with chili and Vietnamese pickles

When eating from one of Vietnam’s iconic street food vendors, you’ll notice their proclivity for adding pickled vegetables to a range of dishes. For our braised pork ribs, we’ve utilized this staple of Vietnamese cuisine to add a sour kick to the dish.

 Hanoian roasted boneless duck with pickles

Roasted duck, a traditional Chinese delicacy, has slowly become one of Vietnam’s most popular dishes and is eaten largely as a takeaway or during special occasions. We’ve built on this concept and elevated it in the process, crafting something extra special and serving it with pickled vegetables for an extra salty tang.

 Home Finest – Saigon

 Grilled beef on rock salt

Though the dish may be simple, by using the finest cuts of locally sourced, free-range beef and a dash of rock salt, we’ve created a tender slice of beef, guaranteed to satisfy any meat lover.

Saigon ‘pho’ noodle soup

This world-famous dish is a must try for meat-loving visitors in Vietnam. We use finely sliced beef to top this traditional noodle dish, where it bathes in a hearty broth alongside noodles and fresh herbs – if you didn’t eat pho in Vietnam, did you even go?

Roasted duck with five spice

While this dish may be popular throughout Vietnam, it is most commonly found in Saigon, where Chinese influence from the local port popularized the dish amongst the locals. We’re proud to have added our own Vietnamese touch to this veritable feast of meat.

Chefs’ top 5 and guests’ top 5 at Home Moc

With Home Moc situated in the capital city of Vietnam, we’ve been heavily inspired by the Hanoi palate, which has a unique focus on balancing flavors within each dish. This means that our chefs create everyday favorites, local specialties, and national treasures. When you eat a chef special, you can taste their connection to the dish. The guests’ favorites, however, are simply the tastiest meals on the menu, as voted for by our diners.

Top 5 dishes recommended by chefs

Baked herbal chicken in clay pot

Using this traditional cooking technique, the skin of the chicken is caramelized in one of our well-seasoned clay pots and cooked to perfection over time to create the most flavorful chicken dish in town.

Marinated pomelo and dried squid salsa

This refreshing dish brings the sea and the land together in a flavor-filled marriage of the much-loved local fruit and Halong Bay’s famous squid.

Char-grilled lobster with green peppercorn salsa

With such an inimitably gorgeous coastline running the length of Vietnam, there’s an abundance of fresh shellfish right on our doorstep. The succulence of our fresh lobsters is only heightened by the addition of this refreshing peppercorn salsa.

Stir-fried crab with tamarind sauce

This shellfish dish is a heavenly mix of spices, bursting with flavor. Tamarind has become something of a specialty in Vietnam, and when mixed with our Vietnamese crabs, it creates a delicate, but tangy dish set to get all mouths watering.

Deep-fried young sticky rice with jackfruit

You’ll find sticky rice and jackfruit in abundance throughout Hanoi, but rarely are the two paired to make such an indulgent, moreish dessert. It may surprise you that such household ingredients made their way into this sumptuously simple recipe, but it’s no surprise it’s in our chef’s top picks.

Top 5 best dishes voted by guests

 

Hanoian grilled “chả cá” and aroma salsa

One of the definitive dishes of Hanoi, cha ca is beloved by guests of Home Moc due to the inclusive nature of the traditional fish dish. The whole meal is cooked in the center of your table, releasing the scent of fish and turmeric into the air, bringing people together as it cooks.

Marinated pomelo and dried squid salsa

Though this dish may have been recognized already within the chefs’ section, this unique fruit and seafood dish transcends local culture and has quickly become a favorite for tourists too.

Caramelized prawns with crispy garlic

We source all our seafood from nearby fishing ports, buying all our ingredients fresh and cooking them as soon as we can. Our caramelized prawns are a testament to this, cooked with garlic; we showcase the finest in Vietnamese seafood.

Grilled beef with galangal root and lemongrass

Galangal root, ginger’s distant cousin, which looks similar but tastes very different, is the star of this succulent dish. We’ve added lemongrass to maintain a distinctly Vietnamese style, resulting in a beautifully balanced beef dish.

Steamed mango and snow fungus pudding

Our unique dessert exemplifies what we do at Home Moc, taking traditional Vietnamese ingredients and trying to do something unique with them, but we hope to create something memorable in the process. This dish is a must-try for any dessert lover.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Home Moc

Home Moc has established itself as a pillar of Vietnamese tradition, spreading the word of great Vietnamese cuisine throughout the world. This is obvious for anyone that comes to visit us. There are a few things that aren’t as well known, however. We’ve wholeheartedly embedded ourselves in Vietnamese tradition, from location to name, but here’s a few fun facts that you didn’t know.

1.     French Quarter

One of the many benefits to our location is that we’re nestled right in the heart of Hanoi’s French Quarter. This area is sometimes referred to as the ‘little Paris’ of Hanoi. Full of grand French colonial buildings and located on the south-eastern end of the popular tourist spot, Hoan Kiem Lake, the French Quarter makes an ideal destination for many travelers looking to see the Vietnamese capital with a touch of class and sophistication.

During the French occupation in the 19th century, the colonizers constructed grand French villas. Unlike the pokey alleyways you’ll find in Hanoi’s Old Quarter, this area is full of broad, tree-lined streets.

2.     The meaning of Moc

You might be wondering what the ‘Moc’ in ‘Home Moc’ means. ‘Moc’ in Vietnamese, translates to ‘wood’, and makes up one of the five elements of Chinese ‘chi’ – energy. These play a large role in Vietnamese culture, including how to eat.

The five elements are metal, wood, water, fire, and earth, each representing a major organ in the body. The belief is, in order to lead a healthy lifestyle, you’ll need to have the perfect balance of these five elements.

3.     Union Park

When it comes to green space, Hanoi is somewhat lacking. Sitting opposite Home Moc is one of Hanoi’s few major parks, Union Park, also known as Thong Nhat Park, one of the nicer, more verdant areas. Union Park is an ideal, wide, open, airy space, perfect for relaxing, playing games, or studying outdoors. Union Park was once known as Lenin Park, but has since lost that title to Chi Lang flower garden, the new Lenin Park.

4.     Swans in Thiền Quang Lake

In a bid to spruce up the park, the government introduced a flock of black and white Belgian swans into Hoan Kiem Lake in 2018. Following complaints by the local’s, however, who stated that they were too European and unsuitable for Hoan Kiem’s history and culture, the swans were soon moved from the focal point of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, to Thien Quang Lake, just a stone’s throw from Home Moc.

These days, the twelve swans, each valued at almost US$1,000, are said to be settling into their new environment very well. One expert specializing in Hoan Kiem Lake, however, stated that the swans are accustomed to living in cold areas, and cannot tolerate the heat of the summer. In other words, if you want to see a swan in Hanoi, do it soon, as they may not be around for long.

5.     Art Deco around Thien Quang Lake

A walk around Thien Quang Lake will reward you, not only with the sight of some out of place swans, but perhaps the largest number of Hanoi’s art deco buildings, too.

Inspired by modern Bauhous designs, architects constructed a large number of art deco buildings in the 1930s. These were homes of intellectuals, artists, and diplomats throughout the last century. You’ll be able to find many of them by meandering around this lovely lake, not far from Home Moc.

Exploring Saigon: The Neighborhood Around The Chopsticks, Home Finest, and Ngon Villa

While District 3 may only be a stone’s throw from central District 1, it can often feel remarkably different, with a far slower pace, smaller crowds, and a more relaxed atmosphere. Stunning colonial architecture, temples, and parks are placed sporadically throughout the neighborhood, along with a range of shopping options.

If you’re in the area, be sure to check out The Chopsticks, Home Finest, or Ngon Villa Saigon for a taste of the city’s well-preserved colonial architecture and traditional cuisine.

Turtle Lake

Public space is something of a rarity in Saigon and while it might be a little bit of an exaggeration to claim that Turtle Lake is actually a lake, it is, at least, a moderately green, moderately watery area in which to rest. You’ll find this public area to be a melting pot of youth culture in Saigon. Young people park their bikes here and hang around for dates, meet their friends, and play games. All you’ll need to do is sit around and watch the interesting scenes unfold.

Tan Dinh Church

Not only is Tan Dinh Saigon’s largest church, it is also, undoubtedly, its pinkest. Built in 1876, Tan Dinh is a Romanian-style church that reaches 60 metres in height. It has two massive bell towers to ogle, along with Italian marble altars. For anyone that might be curious, the answer is yes. It’s pink on the inside, too.

Temple of the Buddha’s Relic

Temple of the Buddha’s Relic, also known as Xa Loi pagoda, is Buddhism HQ in southern Vietnam, making it a little bit more than your average pagoda. The area itself contains a library, bell tower, a shrine, a room selling Buddhist books, and other rooms with monks. A lot of monks. The pagoda officially opened in 1958.

War Remnants Museum

Much of Vietnam’s history has been strikingly violent, as highlighted by Saigon’s War Remnants Museum. As you might have guessed by the title, the museum is made up of leftover parts from different wars. There are the ‘tiger cages’, used by the South Vietnam government to keep their political prisoners; a guillotine, used by the French and South Vietnam government until 1960; a helicopter, a tank and plenty of ghastly photos of those who suffered by the hand of ‘Agent Orange’. Not for the feint-hearted.

Southern Women’s Museum

The role women have played throughout Vietnam’s history is prominent and obvious. From a matriarch grandma at a family gathering to the significance women played during the wars, the important role of women in Vietnam is undeniable. Learn about all that and more at the Southern Women’s Museum.
