Vietnamese snacks: hotdog

27 Sep


Today, a small post about one streetfood you can get in Vietnam: hotdogs. But wait, they call it hotdog but it’s actually a triangle pancake! The sellers use some kind of machine to make them, which is a bit like a waffle machine, but it has only the shape of four triangles.
And here it gets quite interesting because the fillings are originals.

The most Westernised one must be chocolate (when cooking, they use chocolate squares).
There is one with cheese (called Pho Mai in Vietnam, if you speak French, you’ll realise that Pho Mai sounds like Fromage, well, it’s because of the colonial times), this cheese is one of the only cheeses Vietnamese like: The Laughing Cow (La Vache qui Rit).

Then, there is the one with those candied papayas made in China (that’s what I was told). In Vietnam they use it also as a topping for ice-creams. A few Vietnamese are quite worried about those because they say it is made in China.
I’m not going to explain now why Vietnamese are a bit against China, because you may already know, and I’ll probably write something about Vietnam in general and living there in the next weeks.

There is also one made with pineapple jam, and you can find some with Pa Te (paté) or Xuc Xich (sausage/saucisse), here are other words coming from French.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that
    service? Thanks!
