international taste

I have traveled a little in my (young) life, and have been fortunate enough to have met an even greater number of amazing people from various backgrounds. so I thought it would be appropriate enough to share some of my favorite things from different nations and their cultures~

East Asia: Vietnam

Pho: translation = noodle soup (with chicken or beef)

As an intense self proclaimed noodle lover, this had to be included in the list! Pho consists of minimal ingredients, though do not let that underestimate the amazing wonders of it! once you've had it, you will surely be addicted. the trick is that the broth is often cooked over many hours on slow heat to give it a strong herbal taste. the price is very good for a very large size dish, and this is because it is a staple meal in every Vietnamese restaurant.

Africa: Morocco 

Green Mint tea

As an avid lover of tea, of all flavors from different cultures, the Moroccan tea is most definitely amongst my top favorite! what stands out about THIS tea in comparison to so many others? its' simplicity and strong flavor, it is almost impossible to have only one cup ..(not because I'm greedy but also because the cups are quite small, which is a traditional culture aspect) While drinking this tea, you can feel the love that was put into making it and the pride Moroccans have for it. Drink this after a long day of work to de-stress, or simply after a big meal to help digestive, either way you cannot go wrong with it!

South America: Argentina

Dulce de Leche: translation = "sweet milk"

if you have a sweet tooth, then you'll love this! the quite popular and traditional caramel like sauce can be paired with bread and simply eaten by itself. This has recently become very well known in other continents and it seems there's a good reason everyone is getting on board for it. it's delicious and simple!

this is actually making me really hungry now.. yumm

Eid Mubarek! Bayraminiz mubarek olsun! =)

au revoir
