Culinary around the world

Post by mysterybad on Tue 28 May 2013 - 7:48

In here we have a lot of friends from all over the world . Why don't we talk about food from where we live . Every country and culture has a particular food culture - but I think we don't need such broadly speaking like that - it is too broad and not all of us have experienced about cuisine , we will only talk about food where we live ( the region where you live ) on issues such as name, price , processing and its features (things that make it unique) .
And if possible - please post YOU PICTURE about that dish





Name : Cơm tấm / Broken rice .

Including : Rice , pork or chicken , pigskin , omelet , tomato , cucumber an pickles

Sauce : Nước Mắm / fish sauce

Price : 1$ (at my place)

This is a popular breakfast dish in Vietnam . it's delicious, inexpensive , easy to prepare and provide a lot calories





Name : B bt tết / Steaks (Vietnam Version)

Including : Beef , omelet , onion , tomato , cucumber , pickles and bread

Sauce : soy sauce and chili sauce

Price : 1,30$ (at my place)

Another popular breakfast dishes in Vietnam - it is a bit more expensive than the Cơm tấm , difficult to prepare and if you're not careful, you could easily get burned . The special thing about this dish is we do not "cook" it - we used a metal plate (as you can see in the picture ) ,burning it to heat up , put beef , oil , onion and eggs in the metal plate and serving it (While it is still hot) to customers

... That all looks amazing!! I don't have anything that great on the dinky little island where I live. Thank the Force I'm a ferry ride away from Manhattan.

My mom's cooking is great though. For dinner last night we had steaks on the grill and a nice salad. Hawt!

And here I thought that Triela lived on the "Broken Land of Streams and Lakes..." Very Happy

There are many Vietnamese restaurants all over Manhattan, and all over the city as well! Its a matter of finding them. There used to be a great one on Amsterdam Ave and 76th street but I have not been there in a while so I dont know if it is stiil there.

I was last there 11 years ago, but I remember there being good Phở places all over the north side of Seattle. Also, Ivar's Salmon House on North Lake Way is the only Zagat rated restaurant I know of that has a take-out window.

Frankly I think you find the best stuff when you look in the weirdest places. My favorite Italian restaurant in the world is in Germany outside an American Air Base and run by a Lebanese family. I actually paid tribute to them by using their name in a story...Kara & Marisa go there to pick up Lebanese/Italian take-away while their handlers are holed up on a stake-out.

I think my favorite "food near a base" story has to go to Pukka Pizzas, which is just outside the gates of the Puckapunyal army training area. I don't know if it's still there, but long story short, the bloke who ran it was ex-army, so if you gave him a six-figure grid reference he'd deliver. Apparently it was a quite well patronised (oddly) as a means by which to avoid rat-pack food.

Yes, we have great Phở places all over the Puget Sound (including a really great one up near the Everett factory I visit once a week). But when I want to experience the full variety and wonderfulness of Vietnamese cuisine, I visit Tamarind Tree in the International District and Long Provincial downtown.

On my first Grand Tour of Europe in 1985, the best Italian food I had was in a town north of Geneva in the French part of Switzerland. sweat
