This weekend, I took an impromptu trip with my parents to Ca Mau. It is the southernmost area of Vietnam with a lot of delicious food. Since I arrived, I've been enjoying a lot of good food and accumulated quite a few pictures of snacks to make a nice post.
|My cousin took me to Vincom Center: a place that sells expensive stuff I can't afford|
Make Up For Ever counter is over there. Prices are the same as in Sephora whereas the MAC counter across the street charges double.
|But they do have nice ice-cream in the basement: Bud's of San Francisco|
|Before we ordered ice-cream, we went to Tous les Jours, a French bakery opposite to Bud's.|
My cousin got a slice of coffee cake
|It was nice but a bit dry|
|I got half of a piece of cake/bread with custard filling.|
|And now, ze ice-cream|
Pretty please with a cherry on top :)
This two-scooped glass of ice-cream had strawberry syrup.
|Mine, with chocolate syrup|
They actually switched our orders. This one was supposed to me my cousin's. We didn't know until we ate the second scoop!
And now, the very delicious part:
|I CAN HAZ CHOCO-PIE!|
|*Dance* Choco-pie and Custas, Choco-pie and Custas!|
For many many blue moons, I did not eat Choco-pie. Therefore, the first sight of this marsmallow-filled cake reached my eyes, I wanted the whole box. However, I had to share with my brother and the rest of the family. Sharing is caring, yo!
One of my cousins made 2 lbs of this stuff before we left Mui Ne. These waffles are hand-made from scratch in iron pans. Despite their earthy appearance, the coconut waffles are muy deliciosos. They are crispy and have a hint of coconut milk. Yummy! The old me could have gone through a box of this stuff in one sitting but the new me is a lot wiser. Since they are region-specific, I slowly savor each one of them. Once they are gone, someone would have to make a trip to Mui Ne to bring them to me.
|Last but not least, Tiger energy biscuit|
My brother ate this thing. It's some sort of cracker, not biscuit. He seemed to enjoy it. It's funny to see a tiger playing soccer on the package. I hope those who were born in the year of the Tiger would get a kick out of this.
That's all for snacked food today. I hope to have "Food in Vietnam" as an active section while I live here. If you have any special requests on food blogs, please let me know. I'll do my best to make you drool :)
