Viet Nam News by Nguyễn Văn Thọ Although the fast-food restaurant owned by Thanh was located in the outskirts of a German town, customers crowded in for lunch in great numbers as there were many offices, factories and small workshops nearby. To serve them more comfortably, one day the owner had to hire an assistant to cook and deliver food. September is an inter-season month with oak leaves turning yellow. Poor Thanh, as his assistant’s driving licence had been recently confiscated by the police, he had to deliver food by himself. One afternoon he took four rations of chicken dumplings to an office on Vonter Street. Away from the kitchen, he could enjoy fresh breezes in the open air and the fragrant smells of flowers and blossoms from roadside orchards. At the customers’ office gate, Thanh found an old man waiting for him outside to receive the food. “Thank you very much,” Thanh said to the white-haired old man in a … [Read more...] about The Tiger-Man

Viet Nam News by Dan Hambleton A mud-spattered Honda swished by me on the mountain pass. The young Vietnamese driver gripped the handlebars confidently, as if he knew every inch of the road. The bike disappeared around a curve. I turned to look out from the shoulder where I’d stopped. Below me, an immense chasm yawned. Beyond it, surreal and staggering in size, jagged peaks piled on one another in a breathtaking march to the horizon. The sky above, wide as the sea, glowed with pale light amid dark clouds as big as the mountains. This was Quản Bạ Pass, the soaring approach to what is known in Việt Nam as Heaven’s Gate. Hà Giang Province has high mountain ranges, as well as dazzling wildflowers that blanket its valleys in the fall. A popular motorbike circuit known as The Northern Loop, which covers more than 300 kilometres, circles from the town of Hà Giang northeast to Đồng Văn, Việt … [Read more...] about Riding the Northern Loop
Viet Nam News By An Phương Most people are familiar with HCM City’s Chinatown in District 5, Korea Town in District 7, Japan Town in District 1, and the Western expat enclave in District 2.

This theme began innocently enough in Da Nang, where I came across a great shop that serves bún thịt nướng (barbecued pork pieces, sausage wrapped in betel leaves, and ground chicken on a skewer, together with the customary mountain of various greens, rice noodles, and a chili-laced peanut sauce) and took the habit of calling in each week or so. The single width standard-sized shop features those low-slung tables and teeny-weeny stools that all of us somewhat taller folks in Vietnam absolutely adore on the left side. It’s like a limbo dance to get low enough to sit on the stools without ending up sprawling on the floor, but once you’re seated it’s all good from there. A serving stand spans the left half of the front entrance with mom and her nón lá (traditional cone-shaped hat) running the grilling operation on the sidewalk. The right side of the shop is actually a motorbike service and repair operation, with stacks of tires … [Read more...] about Vietnam journal: Which came first? Chicken or egg?
