YES -- however, not all Vietnamese
- Does Pho Queen eat dogs?

His name is Otto.
- Are all Vietnamese skinny?
- Do all Vietnamese eat healthy?
- Can I get fat
on Vietnamese food?
YES, you can get fat with any food if you eat too much of it in one sitting
and all the time. Eating in moderation is the key.
- Do you have to be a Vietnamese to like Vietnamese
Of course NOT. My husband is a silly white guy who was born and raised in
Cleveland, Ohio. He loves Vietnamese food especially fish sauce. He loved fish sauce so much that he
wanted to put it on ALL Vietnamese food. Needless to say, he found out the hard way. Not all Vietnamese food
tasted good with fish sauce, especially desserts. Hee hee hee....
- What is fish sauce?
A pungent, salty liquid made from fermented anchovies or other fish, used as a seasoning and
condiment in Southeast Asian cuisine.
Does that sound appetizing or what? Despite it's
unappetizing definition, it is pretty tasty. Vietnamese use fish sauce in many varieties of stir fries, soups, etc and NOT commonly in dessert.
- What is the
difference between summer roll, spring roll, and egg roll?
There are two different types
of rolls, fried and boiled. The egg rolls are usually fried. Until recently I was confused between summer rolls
and spring rolls. Some people on the west coast including myself called the boiled version spring roll. Others
known spring rolls as fried egg rolls. When I moved to Florida, I learned that the boiled version was also called summer
In Vietnamese, we called the fried rolls "Chả Giò" and the boiled
rolls "Gỏi Cuốn".
- Can fish sauce be used to put out a Pho King fire?
Unfortunately, Fish sauce cannot put out a Pho King fire. The Pho King fire is untamable. However, the Pho
Queen's Magic Monkey Sauce will soothe the Pho King soul…
We recommend our cookbook, A Vietnamese Kitchen: Treasured Family Recipes for the "Sweet and Sour Fish Sauce" recipe along with many other easy Vietnamese recipes.
I have food allergies to vegetable oil and saturated fat. Could I find substitutes and still
make good soup?
I do not use large amount of oil in Vietnamese soups. My primary concern is to
prevent the ingredients sticking to the pan. You can definitely substitute other oil for vegetable oil and still make good
soup. Sesame or coconut oil is another oil you may want to experiment. Vietnamese food is very flexible.
