a pinch of vietnam

Traditional Vietnamese dish called Bún Hến

My cultural food! It’s probably one of my favorite Vietnamese dishes.  It is composed of white noodles, little clams called hến, vegetables, peanuts, pork skin, and some homemade sauce.  I love Vietnamese food because you get to see the people make it right in front of your face!  Where we ate this was in my dad’s hometown where he was born in Vietnam.  We go to this exact same place every year to eat this deliciousness.  It’s almost like a tradition.  I love going here because it lets me connect with my culture and help carry on the traditions and pass it down to oncoming generations of my family and its origin.
