These little glutinous rice balls can be found with varying flavours of paste filling.

Bun Cha (Hanoi Style Rice Vermicelli With Grilled Pork)

Bun Cha (Hanoi Style Rice Vermicelli With Grilled Pork)

Bun Cha is a light and refreshing dish that is made out of noodles (bun), pork patties (cha) and thin pork slices. Bun Cha is originated from Hanoi and it is also one of the most popular dishes in Hanoi. Instead of mixing the sauce into the noodles together with the meat, the meat is separated from the noodles. The meat sits in the dipping sauce which has a slightly sweet taste. You pick some noodles with your chopsticks and dunk it into the dipping sauce and then eat with the pork and Vietnamese herbs.

Chicken Karaage

Chicken Karaage

Chicken Karaage is a popular Japanese fried chicken that is fried to perfection- juicy and crispy when it’s hot, yet still succulent when it’s cold (therefore it’s great in the bento box). Potato starch gives a better crunch, but if you can’t find it, corn starch will do. We recommend double frying the chicken for extra crispiness.
