Vietnamese/Chinese Barbecue Pork (Thit Xa Xiu/Char Siu)

You see this all over Chinatown: Chinese/Vietnamese BBQ Pork hanging from window shops. Known as Xa Xiu in Vietnamese or Char Siu in Chinese, this delicious BBQ porky goodness is to die for. When making this at home, I make sure to double or even triple the recipe because Xa Xiu can be used in many other Vietnamese dishes. You can find Xa Xiu in Banh Mi, Hu Tieu, Bun, Mi, Banh Bao or simply serve over steamed rice. The versatility is endless!

Vietnamese Grilled Lemongrass Pork Chops (Thit Heo Nuong Xa)

Grilled lemongrass pork chop is my go-to item when I pack lunch for my husband to take to work. I pack the pork chops with steamed white rice and fresh vegetables such as lettuce or sliced cucumbers. Sometimes, I add kimchi and a fried egg if I'm feeling nice. When he reheats the pork chop in the microwave at work, I've been told that he's the envy of his coworkers ;-)

Vietnamese Grilled/Roasted Chicken Sandwich (Banh Mi Ga Nuong)

When I was pregnant with my daughter, I had the appetite of a million elephants. I indulged in all my favorite food. You can't finish that? Let me help you out. At the time, I was working close to Oakland Chinatown. That meant plenty of cheap and satisfying Vietnamese Sandwiches (Bánh Mì). Pregnant me didn't order just one sandwich. I usually ordered two and both were easily finished in one seating. After I was done, I would order another one, as a snack, for my grueling 15-minute waddle back to the office.

My favorite Bánh Mì? It was hands-down the roasted chicken sandwich (Bánh Mì Gà Nướng). Oh, how I love thee.

Whenever we have a đám giỗ, a death anniversary where family members come together to honor and commemorate the deceased loved one with a celebration, I can always count on dining on an elaborate spread of amazing traditional Vietnamese food.

The dish that I look forward to the most during a đám giỗ is the Vietnamese salad (gỏi). This year's đám giỗ for my husband's grandfathermy husband's cousin did not disappoint. Her Vietnamese young jackfruit and shrimp salad (gỏi mít non tôm) was simply scrumptious. I was instantly motivated to make my own version, after picking up a few pointers from the master chef herself.
