    Traditional Vietnamese white rice. Normally, a Vietnamese uses two or three bowls of rice for lunch and dinner:

    Cá cơm kho khô - I don't really know how to translate into English, but to make this, use small fishes, put some salt, sugar, some fish sauce, some onion and some more water with color maker (from sugar), put all in to a closed pot, cook until all water evaporated and the fishes are left dry. This is to eat with white rice. Really nice. Need nothing more:


    And here is a special dish of Vietnam. I think it started from some where middle of Vietnam for the King. Then now every part of Vietnam has their own type.
    Common name is Spring Roll (Gỏi cuốn).
    Cooked pork, shrimp, some pickles, onion leaf, noodle, vegetable.... all rolled inside the rice cover. Used with special sauce.

    This is a special food of Huế (a province in Middle of Vietnam).
    It made from some sort of small mussel, mixing with some peanuts, sesame, onion.... This is to eat with rice crackers (as you see on the left). People not using spool to take the mussel, they use rice crackers to do that:
