Pieces of Home & Cute Props from Saigon


Feast your eyes, babies.
Here are some pieces of home, brought by my sis and mom.
J.Co's cute, adorable and colorful Jpops....almost too pretty to eat..



...and my favorites, Choco Loco.
Not really sweet donuts, covered and filled with semisweet chocolate.
Made for those who are mad about chocolate.


You know I've failed trying to recreate this deliciousness many many times.
Finally, I'll get to eat a proper one, done only by the pros.


Little balls of pleasure. Fatty pork, shrimps, deep fried to perfection, made to order by our childhood neighbor.


...and...go on, get jealous.
Super cute props from Cho Benh Thanh market, Saigon.

Ok, i just woke up. I see your post, i haven't eat my breakfest yet but i'm craving for chocolate. THANK YOU ! hahaha Everything looks so delicious. How many times do you go to the gym in a week ? Kidding ;)

I try to work out at least 3 x in a week (very hard to stick to this commitment and obviously not enough hehe)

Ravenous Couple said...

yes, we're very jealous! we wish we could get some props from VN, in fact, all our photos are taken with the same 3-4 plates....we'll have to get more into props like those--too bad we can't just take a quick flight to Saigon :(

I was in Ben Thanh market less than a month ago. More interested in gulping all those delicious Vietnamese dishes than shopping for souvenirs. The pictures are still buried within close to 4000 images I managed to snap during the entire trip. The fried pork balls look so scrumptious !

I love those spoons. I collect pottery from my travels too. I actually bought two tea sets ($3) and three mini tea sets (50 cents) for the altar. They were so cheap I would have bought more, but no room. You have to visit Vietnam some day. Wait for me. I'll stop off in HK and visit you and we can both do VN. :)

Mochachocolata Rita said...

giz said...

Salivating on all the yummies. And really jealous of your props! I have never seen this kind of spoon before, cuteeeeeee....

tigerfish said...

foodbin said...

wow!those meatballs looks delicious-dip into chillies sauce-heavenly.

Zen Chef said...

Is that Martabak Manis!? Damn.. that looks so good and nowhere to be found in my part of the world. I'll let you perfect the recipe (or burn down your apartment) before i make my first attempt. :)

EatTravelEat said...

Wow..everything looks so wonderful! So much food, and so much pretty food :). Those donuts are so mouthwatering and so pretty. Why do donut chains in the US not do such a fantastic job of decorating?

noobcook said...

Cakelaw said...

Yummo! I'm in for the Choco Loco in particular.
