Mixed Plate Friday

Steamed Tapioca Pearl Dumplings Stuffed with Peanut Pork

I know nothing about this dish. All I know is it was delicious and I would probably never attempt to make it, I found it at Lao Asian Market and would absolutely get it again.

Absolutely banger of a dish from Bac Nam – I don’t see these dumplings in a lot of Vietnamese restaurant menus so I was ecstatic to try it! They did not disappoint.

I don’t have much information on this. I got it from Palama Supermarket and ate it hot with some white rice at home. It really hit the spot, a real comfort dish.

    I have to try those vietnamese dishes. I pass by the Lao Asian Market every so often but never went in. Across from Char Hun sut, right? I love BacNam but always just get the same stuff. New stuff to try!
    That saba and daikon is so good. Only smells up the whole house when you warm it up, LOL
