Pho: Vietnam’s National Noodle Dish
This list couldn’t start better. We decided to start with Pho, dish full of flavors that will melt your taste buds out of joy. Pho is a great meal for a chilly morning. You can try it for munchy dinner time, or go out and eat it after the sun sets down.
You can’t mistake Pho with any other food. A delicious and healthy broth is prepared from bones and meat. The broth boosts your immune system and acts as a source of protein for your meal. After the broth is ready, rice and noodles are added with some onions and meat (you can choose the meat). To finish up the process, the cooks add cilantro, onion, ginger and cinnamon seasonings.
You might’ve already tasted Pho in your home country. Due to globalization, nothing is left unknown. But do yourself a favor and try it prepared in an original way.
Chicken Inasal in Bacolod City, Philipines
Chicken inasal, commonly known simply as inasal, is a Filipino variant of roast chicken, marinated in a mixture of Calamansi – a Filipino citrus reminiscent of lemon, orange and lime, pepper, coconut vinegar and annato, then grilled over hot coals while basted with the marinade.
It is served with rice, calamansi, soy sauce, chicken oil and vinegar (often “sinamak” vinegar, a palm vinegar infused with garlic, chili peppers and langkawas, a kind of ginger). A common dish in the Visayas, especially the Negros, it is a popular specialty in the city of Bacolod, where an entire street market is dedicated to local dishes, particularly inasal. A sign in the heart of the market reads “Manokan Country” which is the Ilonggo word for chicken.
