Because he craves Hanoi rolls, he is able to spend almost two million airfares (round-trip) to maneuver from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi, “make a plate of banh cuon” after which return the identical day.
This is just not the primary time Toan has spent a number of million simply to eat Hanoi rolls within the ambiance on the finish of the 12 months.

“Damn it! So delicious is the same… One thing is that it’s delicious, it’s like the skin of a beautiful woman who has just washed her hair with water cooked with coriander leaves; People bewildered and wonder where that fragrance comes from, from the scent of the bath water or from the flesh?”
Hanoi rolls are scrumptious, however that deliciousness is just full when eaten in Hanoi
Dinh Toan added, Hanoi’s banh cuon is absolutely scrumptious, but when it is nonetheless the identical product and the recipe is offered in Saigon, it is unlikely that he might be “in a hurry” to come back eat it like that.

I’ve already eaten however I can nonetheless eat one other plate or two despite the fact that I’m not hungry…”
“For enjoyable, the sensation of having fun with this dish within the year-end climate is like consuming beer. I simply wish to linger, need somewhat longer to ‘chill’ longer in that second, so long as it is good. “.
