The Vietnamese diet is heavy on green vegetables, both cooked and raw greens that accompany meat and fish dishes – this is one of the things I love about being here. Hoi An’s principal market in the old town has a wide range of vegetables, some are not to be found outside of Vietnam.
Some chili for breakfast? Lao food is delicious, but a lot of it is loaded with chili – fiery, set-your-mouth-on-fire hot chili. Delicate palettes beware. This morning street market had plenty of several varieties of chili available.
