Last weekend my Ate (older sister) brought me to St. Albans ’cause the Vietnamese community had their Lunar New Year Festival. There are heaps of foods, rides and shows, the whole street was closed. People was having fun by eating different type of food that the Vietnamese was selling. I too was having fun by just thinking which food should I eat first. Everything looks so YUMMY.!!! But the first thing my cousin bought for us was Vietnamese coffee (’cause we both like it)
Here are the foods that we ate:
-Sesame Doughnut, it’s a fried bread with sesame on it, it’s actually sweet, perfect for dessert and snack.
-Takoyaki, a ball-shaped Japanese snack made of a wheat flour-based batter and cooked in a special takoyaki pan with shrimp or diced octopus.
-Minced Beef wrapped in a leaf then barbequed.
-Then we ate crabs but the small version so I called it crablets that has a delicious batter and some pickled carrots.
-Shrimp pancakes (I’m pretty sure that’s what they called it) it’s not our typical pancakes they fry it in different kind of fryer with a diffrent batter, but my most favorite part is, it has shrimp on it.
-I don’t know what they call it but it taste like a Longganisa (a Filipino food) for me but it’s thin.
-Actually we haven’t got the chance to eat this but it looks so delicious. It looks like a tofu with condiments and eggs.
I really enjoyed my weekend. And I really had fun celebrating their Chinese New Year. A new different way of starting the Year of the Horse…
So Take A LEAP and FLY……
