C is for the place called “Cái Răng” where we visited several days ago from the floating market to the noodle making village.

Noodle here is not the yellowish one everyone used to think or even the famous “Phở”. I want to present you “Hủ tiếu” which has really different taste from the other two.

If you are familiar with the term “homestay”, you will enjoy this kind of activity. In Japan, you have to sweat really well before you can eat the noodle made by your own hands (or your feet). In VietNam, you can also learn how to laid a rice paper nicely on a rattan frame.

The first time I saw that rattan roller, I was amazed. I have no idea of what someone would do with it. The locals gave me hearted instructions and after several times trying, the result was not bad at all.

The rice paper will be dried in the sunlight for 3 days or more because of its thickness compare to the normal one you usually found in supermarket.

All the process of making this kind of noodle is natural and good for health. You can see the rice husk burning in the stove to provide heat for steaming rice paper. Once rice paper is dried, it will be cut into small threads and reserve for later use.

We prefer to eat fresh noodle like this than other industrial massive products. When you take part in the process of making what you eat, there would be a memorable experience.

    Wow. I didn’t know you made noodles this way by hand. It looks like a massive effort and it looks steaming hot over the rattan roller. But you didn’t turn red in the face 😀 They look so fine coming out from the machine in the last photo, and looks like a lot of noodle too. Made from rice straight from the rice fields? And do you have a place to keep the noodles fresh. It must taste delicious ^^’

        How sweet of your Khan to wish I was there with you making rice paper. I would love to try it someday. Noodle pizza? I’ve never heard of that. I’ve seen spaghetti pizza in Australia but I am sure the one you’re talking about is different ^^’ 🙂

      Thanks so much ❤ I'd love to share with people about how Vietnamese noodles were made. There are a lot of kinds of noodles in our culture but in English they are just called "noodle" 😦

Can we share our opinions ? :)
