I have eaten a lot of indescribable things like scorpion and lamb hotpot. Most of my food experiences have been great.
Flaming meat (and vegetables): this is a casual thing that they do. It was cooked on a grill right in front of us on the table. A man cooked it for us. Everybody made a big deal because bacon was most like we have at home.
Lamb hotpot is kind of a lamb broth with other things to add. Lamb hotpot tastes like lamb that has been seared to the bone. Lamb hotpot has a certain feel that is kind of warm and squishy.
Chicken was different than we have at home. It is browner, there is not as much white meat. Every time we get chicken there are a lot of little bones which can drive me me crazy. The chicken didn’t have a lot of meat because they are a lot smaller than at home.
Steamed buns and dumplings are found on the streets. Most sellers make steamed buns and dumplings in a wood steamer. They are steaming hot when you purchase them. They can have vegetables or other things inside.
Bissky Dziadyk Family
Travelling the world as a family since 2008.
In September 2008 our family embarked on a four month journey through South East Asia. Traveling with a child who uses a wheelchair presented its challenges, but following the Mekong River through China, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam with a wheelchair was truly an adventure.
When we move beyond our fears and embrace our dreams, the Universe has an odd way of not only supporting us but giving us more opportunities than we ever imagined. Embarking on a journey with an open heart we can not help but be changed forever by the experience. Indeed it would be a waste to return untouched in the spiritual realm.
September: China (Beijing, Xi’an,Kunming, Yuanyang)
October: Northern Vietnam (Hanoi, Halong Bay) and
Laos (Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng, Vientiane)
November: Southern Vietnam (Hue, Ho Chi Minh City, Mekong Delta)
December: Cambodia (Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Battambang, Kampot and Sihanoukville).
