My mother cooks rice cultivated in Hoi An all year round. Once you eat this typical rice, you will ntice its marvelous combination qualitied like texture, fragrance and tasty.
Apart white rice, she also cooks brown rice. Brown rice in Vietnam has a little bit red, so we call it Huyet Rong (Huyet means blood, Rong means dragon, the blood of dragon). My mother has know the wonderful value of brown rice for long, as she usually cooks this kind of rice for the whole family. We enjoy such meals very much.
My mother also makes brown rice drink everyday, or mixing it with green tea. We all know that brown rice drink is a precious natural food nutrition, ongoing drinking this kind of drink will keep you health.
With rice, broth is a very important dish in each meal, of which all ingredients are from Hoi An.
If you’re ever tried an authentic broth made from fresh river fish and green vegetable from famous Tra Que village, we bet that you never forget such an interesting experience.
Tra Que Charming Village on the edge of Hoi An. This village is famous for sweet scented vegetable that spice up the daily meals of Hoi An people. The particular village’s soil which enriched by alluvium from the local De Vong river combination with the traditional farming techniques give all vegetable its special fragrance.
Vegetable are in every meal my mother cooks. Sometimes our relatives bring us a kind of sweet cabbage or malabar, so our meal is full of green vegetable.
