Restaurants in Kenya
A restaurant is an establishment that serves, prepares and dinning in a way that differs substantially from the ordinary menu and service offered at other establishments. Many restaurants offer a wide variety of meals and beverages on their premises. Vietnamese cuisine is rooted in ancient Buddhist traditions. Here are some things about Vietnamese cooking.
Nguy Din Thong is a famous dish in Vietnam, prepared by steam-heating rice noodles called pho. Pho can be prepared with many different types of ingredients like meat, vegetables, seafood, tofu and seasonings. In addition to noodle dishes, Vietnamese restaurants also serve other types of Vietnamese fare such as stir-fried vegetables or Vietnamese specialties like stir-fried meats. Nguy Din Thong is a popular choice among Vietnamese immigrants in the United States.
Noodle dishes called and can be made from any combination of Chinese thin slices of steamed wheat noodles along with meat, vegetables, seafood and spice. One of the most well-known banh dishes is called bad, which means brown rice cake. This dish is typically served during lunch, along with vegetables and meat, to avoid stomach problems associated with spicy food. A vegetarian version of banh is called nuoc khmer, or warm vegetable. It can contain rice, fish, and other vegetables or meat.
Vietnamese Pork ribs are considered a delicacy in Vietnam, similar to what Americans call barbecue. However, unlike barbecue, the meat is not smoked over an open fire like it is in America. Instead, Vietnamese chefs marinate the pork, then cook it inside a vinegar-base marinade for several hours. Afterward, it is covered in thick batter to make it easier to shape and roll into banh mi and sesame-style rolls.
Spring rolls are a staple of Vietnamese cuisine, a little less healthy than banh mi. However, unlike banh mi, they are rolled and deep-fried. Spring rolls are typically filled with vegetables, such as tomatoes and spring onions. A variety of Vietnamese vegetables and meats also make up this summer rolls, which are best enjoyed alongside fresh Vietnamese rice.
Although there are a number of different types of Vietnamese noodle soups, most are very simple, just a few ingredients tossed together in a flavorful broth. There is no special occasion to enjoy vietnamese cuisine, since it is available all year round, day and night. One of the most popular dishes is pho, or Vietnamese noodle soup. Pho can come in various flavors, from fish and seafood to meat and tofu.
Rice noodles are another popular choice for Vietnamese noodle soups. They are steamed and mixed with vegetables and herbs before serving. Often, the broth is flavored with ginger and other spices, and then mixed with hot water. Rice noodles are also available in various sizes, from large round ones to thin, delicate foot-long rice noodles. They are best enjoyed with grilled meats, such as pork, beef, or chicken.
The variety and number of Vietnamese restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City can be overwhelming. Therefore, it is important to learn to ask some specific questions before reserving a place to eat. How many ribs on the spring roll are you going to have? What is the menu like? Is there a special occasion? If so, what are your usual Vietnamese dishes?
One of the most popular Vietnamese dishes is fish sauce, or VN, which is Vietnamese, fermented fish sauce. It is a thick, syrupy substance that adds to the taste of the rice, meat, and vegetables. You will likely find it in all Vietnamese restaurants; however, there are also restaurants in the United States where it has been changed to a more American-style hot sauce. Some people might find this difficult to tolerate, but I find it absolutely delicious! My personal favorite VN dish is the bui (buckwheat), which is a classic Vietnamese dish of thin slices of buckwheat dough with a hint of fish sauce.
If you are looking for a Vietnamese restaurant in Nairobi or anywhere else in Kenya for that matter, try the ubiquitous bah tum. Bah tam is a spongy wheat tortilla that is filled with beef, chicken, or pork, rolled and cut into small portions. It is served with a spicy peanut gravy that is made using ketchup and red pepper paste.
Last but certainly not least is the famous day plu, which is a deep-fried whole skewer of Vietnamese noodles. The word “plu” means “left” in Vietnamese, and when this dish is finished it looks like the noodles are left on the plate to be enjoyed. This is one of the best vietnamese noodle dishes I’ve ever had, and the wonderful spicy fish sauce along with the tender noodles make for a memorable dish.
