buttery, super garlicky garlic noodles

Garlic Noodles Recipe

This easy garlic noodles recipe is super rich and buttery, and is a punch in the mouth of garlic and onion. We use wonton noodles here so it’s kinda an asian garlic noodle vibe, but it’s great with just about any kind of noodle or pasta. Each year my family and some friends gets together for an event called ‘crab…

Bún Riêu Recipe

Bún riêu is another very popular and flavor-packed Vietnamese rice noodle soup loaded with herbs and vegetables. Compared to the other Vietnamese soup recipes we have here, this is the only one with shrimp, crab, tomato and tofu. We’ll cook this with a relatively easy method, but still delicious results. If you want to get a little crazier with effort I’ll…

Bánh Xèo – Savory Vietnamese Crêpes

Bánh xèo seems to be designed to be eaten as a family. The batter, filling ingredients, and veggies aren’t complicated to prepare, but they don’t make sense to be bought or made to be eaten by yourself. You don’t just buy 1/4 pound of pork, 8 shrimps, or buy 1/4 head of lettuce. You kind of have to bump the…

Bún Bò Huế Recipe – Spicy Beef & Pork Noodle Soup

Bún bò Huế is a hidden Vietnamese gem that has yet to “make it” in mainstream American cuisine. It’s a rich and spicy soup with deep layers of flavor. This Central Vietnamese soup is paired with tender slices of beef and pork, then topped with lots of fresh herbs. I consulted my favorite Vietnamese cook–Mom–on how to make bún bò Huế. And to find out subleties that make BBH…

Vietnamese Chicken Soup (With Elbow Macaroni)

It has been getting coooold lately, cold for Southern California anyways! This is perfect weather for you to cook up some soup. If you haven’t built up the courage to try the bitter melon soup I posted the other week,  Vietnamese chicken soup with elbow macaroni might be a simpler start :). What’s that you say? Elbow macaroni isn’t Vietnamese?…hmm.…

Spaghetti Squash Carbonara Recipe

Spaghetti squash is something I’ve seen online and social media for YEARS that caught my interest. My girlfriend was actually craving spaghetti squash carbonara this week, so I finally gave in and wanted to see what the fuss was about. There are paleo and other ‘cleaner’ spaghetti squash recipes you could make instead, but if you want to indulge, this is…

Bún Nem Nướng Recipe – Vietnamese Grilled Pork Meatballs

There are LOTS of fresh veggies in many vietnamese dishes, wouldn’t you agree? Any time you have a wrap, or something being dipped into sauce, it’s almost a given fresh lettuce or herbs will be a part of it. And in how many other types of soups do you order and pretty much expect a side of bean sprouts or…

Vietnamese Pork-Stuffed Fried Tofu In Tomato Sauce

This recipe for fried & stuffed tofu in tomato sauce is a meatified version of the popular Vietnamese dish of tofu in tomato sauce (Đậu hũ dồn thịt sốt cà chua). That version is great, and probably the one I’ve had more of, however, the version you’re going to make in this post is more substantial–enough that you don’t need…

Vietnamese Braised Catfish

Cá Kho Tộ Recipe – Vietnamese Caramelized & Braised Catfish

The tộ in cá kho tộ refers to the clay pot this dish is traditionally prepared in. I don’t have any spare clay pots on hand and I bet most of you aren’t going to have it either so we’re going to cheat a bit and make this in a good ol’ fashioned non-stick pan. Mom’s old restaurant served cá kho in a…
