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 Chicken Curry (Ca Ri Ga)

Every country has their own curry, but I, a full-fledged Vietnamese, am not biased at all when I say that the Vietnamese curry is the best one there is. It's not too pungent in spices. It's not too aromatic that it's overpowering and it's not too thick. It’s simply a warm and delicious bowl of tender chicken in a rich curry stewed with potatoes. Served over steamed white rice or as a dipping sauce for toasted baguettes, it’s the perfect meal for these cold winter days.

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 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.

Vietnamese Sweet & Sour Catfish Soup (Canh Chua Ca Tre)

Whenever I come home from traveling, I long for nothing more than traditional Vietnamese home-cooked food. And nothing's more traditional than Vietnamese Sweet and Sour Catfish Soup (Canh Chua Cá Trê) and Vietnamese Caramelized Clay Pot Cat Fish (Cá Kho Tộ). One fish. Two easy dishes. Add steamed white rice and you have a complete Vietnamese home-cooked meal.

Vietnamese/Chinese Crispy Roasted Pork Belly (Thit Heo Quay)

Some people like to take long romantic walks along the beach. I like to take long romantic walks through Chinatown. Nothing gets me going more than beautifully roasted meat carcasses hanging in windows at Chinese BBQ shops.

It's truly a magical place for meat lovers. You have roasted pork, roasted duck, roasted chicken, BBQ'd pork, BBQ'd duck, BBQ'd chicken and sometimes even innards of sorts, all covered in a sweet and sticky glaze. Out of all the meaty goodness, the most tantalizing is the roasted pork belly, also known as Thit Heo Quay in Vietnamese or Siu Yuk in Cantonese.
