Vietnamese street food salad

Vietnam is a wonderful place for food lovers, and I spent much of my time hanging out on the streets eating Hanoi street food.

This plate of salad was made of shredded papaya, herbs, peanuts, a fried quail on top and a tasty sweet and sour dressing poured all over.

You can watch this video to get a better feeling for eating street food in Hanoi.

    Not strange, only different. :-) You were in food photography utopia while snapping that one. Not sure if I could bit into that head, but it does look like it was marinated in something very tasty.

    This brings back memories! To say “street food” is to say “how to eat in Vietnam”, since the streets seem to be an extension of their homes. I also did a street food trek in Hoi An which was as informative as it was delicious (cue the mouth watering at this very moment :) )

    Nice photo Mark. I bet you had found this tasty dish at Hang Buom street – The favourist street for such kind of things. And Glad you enjoyed it so much. Mark, I’m following you on Facebook and I know you’re in India at recent. I really love the way you enjoyed the street food in there. I do hope you will come back to Vietnam soon.
