In Vancouver, we didn’t eat outside all the time. My dads’ friends made super delicious homemade food for us, too.
At the day before we left our hosts made blueberry muffins (as provisions for our journey home), bì cuốn and 火锅 (Chinese hot pot) for dinner.
Bì cuốn (aka summer rolls) is a light and healthy dish. So easy and fast to make. There are so many variations, e.g. shredded pork, pork skin and herbs or shrimps with salad, shredded carrot and herbs, some people put pineapples or avocado in it. You only need rice paper (dipped in lukewarm water), salad and herbs of your choice as well as (marinated) meat of your choice. Like bánh cuốn and bánh xèo, you typically eat bì cuốn with nước chấm.
Thanks a lot, ຕາດຳ and family! ❤
