APAD 240: Same-same but different

Pho is the national noodle soup of the Vietnamese. It’s traditionally eaten at breakfast but it’s also a popular lunch, dinner or snack item. I’ve had pho before – the awesome broth with wafts of ginger and other herbs and slices of beef with rice noodles never fail to make my stomach happy at all times.

The other week, I was introduced to another kind of Vietnamese soup. I forgot what it is called now but it’s got the similar awesome aromatic soup and noodles¬†– if not for the copious amounts of kopi (or was it prahok) for seasoning.

Had this Vietnamese noodle soup for the first time. My officemate said this wasn’t pho.

APAD 192: Street food

My officemates and I ran errands across town last Friday. We had an uneventful tuk-tuk ride but we gotta do what we gotta do, eh!  On the way back, we passed by Olympic Market and there Рrows of nom pang pate stalls welcomed us. Of course, I had to stop and buy one. Nom pang pate is one of my favourite street food in Phnom Penh.

Nom pang pate. Local baguette with pate, cucumbers, green tomatoes, slathered with yolk-ish concoction composed of honey and other secret ingredients. Yummy.

For only a dollar, you’ll get fat slabs of pate on a bed of fresh veggies (mentioned above) on a crunchy baguette with shredded papaya on the side (much like our achara). It’s a remarkably crunchy and messy affair but I tell you, it’s finger-lickin’ good, mate!
