The standard size Snickers bar has 20g of sugar. Vega’s choco-coconut protein bar clocks […]

Recipe: Salmon and Asparagus in Hollandaise Sauce

Recipe: Salmon and Asparagus in Hollandaise Sauce

by Mummy's Kitchen @ Beyond Norm

Salmon is such a versatile fish that it can be eaten almost any way you like it — raw (make sure it is really fresh, sashimi grade of course!), baked, grilled, or pan fried. It is an easy way to get more heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids into your diet. I normally choose Salmon fillets which have some fats so that after cooking they are still juicy and not dry. By dressing them up with some hollandaise sauce and serving it alongside some blanched asparagus, or any greens of your choice, this dish can turn into a gourmet meal.  Another simple and easy meal to prepare to impress your family and friends this season. We love to hear from you so once you have tried this recipe, we hope that you could provide us with some feedback/comments either via our blog or by joining our Mummy’s Kitchen Facebook Group. You can also like us on Beyond Norm’s Facebook Page or subscribe to our blog via the right sidebar to get the latest updates. Serves 4 persons:  Ingredients: For the …

Mango Chicken Curry For Wintertime Existential Despair

by Faine Greenwood @ food – Faine Opines

A Tavern for lamb

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

A Sunday roast is a tradition in the UK & as it had been so long since I had partaken in such a great ritual, I decided to seek out the best for a Sunday roast. The suggestion that kept coming forth was The Tavern in district 7.

As usual, Sunday arrived & off we went to The Tavern for the anticipated roast dinner sensation. On arrival I was informed that today’s roast was lamb for 245,000đ. Without hesitation, my order was placed & my friend ordered the all-day breakfast.

After about 20 minutes 2 large plates crammed with steaming grub arrived at our table. My roast was more than substantial & smelt like a Sunday at home in the UK. The plate was covered with lamb, roast & mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables & a Yorkshire pudding. Mint sauce & gravy were the side-kicks for this dish of splendour.

Not to be out done, the breakfast was also vast with eggs, beans, sausages, hash browns, mushrooms, bacon, toast & butter. At a price of 155,000đ, this is without a shadow of doubt the best I have set eyes on in Asia.

Taste wise, the roast was exactly as it should be with everything properly cooked & served at just the right temperature, a truly pleasing roast that would not be out of place in London’s finest pubs. My only gripe is that the Yorkshire pudding was a rather heavy consistency, this has to be due to the available ingredients in Vietnam. The breakfast was faultless, I sampled some & can vouch for my friends testimonial.

So 4 well earned stars for The Tavern, highly recommended & I shall return in the not too distant future.

Appropriately Unspectacular

by Joe Buckley @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Tân Định market is a large market selling a vast array of different things, as you’d expect from any market. The outside of the place is lined with food stalls, selling an impressive variety of dishes, so it’s easy to combine a trip here with lunch.

Although the market is a great place to go if you’re in the area or live locally, there’s nothing particularly exciting or exotic about the place – although it is housed in an unusual building with a unique façade – so you do not need add it to your must visit list, or make any special effort to go there.

The really interesting thing about Tân Định market, though, is its history. In the late 19th century, the market (then known as Phú Hòa Market) was one of the most important markets in Northern Saigon. The current building, however, was constructed by the French colonial government in the 1920s – partly to improve hygiene, and partly to increase the state’s revenue. And it is in this unusual building that the market is still housed today (minus the roof, which has been replaced).

So, the market is worth finding out about for general interest, but, despite being a great local place, if you don’t ever find yourself in the area, you’re not actually missing much.

Recipe: Toad-in-the-Hole/Sausage Toad

Toad in the Hole is a British classic comfort food at its best. It consists of sausages in Yorkshire pudding batter, usually served with onion gravy and vegetables, or a mash. While the origin of the name ‘toad in the hole’ is unclear, it is often thought to refer to the sausages peeking out through the gaps in the batter. I can already hear some of you saying, “What sausages? Ew, unhealthy!!” As you know Mummy’s Kitchen always tries to use fresh and natural ingredients, so we are of course using Sidecar’s British Cumberland Sausages** to create this simple dish from the humble origins of British cooking!!

#BeyondNormTravels: All Aboard Saigon Princess

#BeyondNormTravels: All Aboard Saigon Princess

by Jannah @ Beyond Norm

Docked at the Nha Rong Harbour, the Saigon Princess, although smaller in size, stands out from the rest of the cruise ships. But good things come in small packages as due to her low height, it can pass the bridge that runs across the Saigon River, allowing the Saigon Princess to go further down the river than the other ships. The Saigon Princess travels all the way down to what would be the tallest building in Saigon. From the exterior, one of her obvious features is the top deck, which enables you to get a better view as you cruise along the River. The interior is both classic and regal. When in full service, the Saigon Princess can hold up to 250 guests, 67 waiters and 11 chefs. They’re differentiated from the other businesses along the harbour as they specialise in fine dining. The meal sets comes in 5 different options – the Western, Asian Seafood, Asian, Fusion and Vegetarian. We selected one Western, one Asian Seafood and two Fusion sets, so that we had …

by Joe Buckley @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Walking into Zen Plaza is a very bizarre experience. From the outside, the building just looks like it houses the offices of innumerable boring businesses. Which, as it turns out, is exactly what it does house. Although the bottom couple of floors make some sort of claim to be a shopping mall.

And it’s a claim which the place doesn’t manage to pull off. The first thing I noticed was a sign pointing to the basement. So, like Alice going down the rabbit hole, I went down there. But it certainly didn’t lead to a Wonderland – just a grubby basement and a small Family Mart.

Back upstairs I went. I found some half empty clothes shops. A floor or two more followed, and each had a couple more ghost stores and customer-less restaurants. Then I realised that members of the public can’t go any higher, because that’s when the offices start. So I went back downstairs. And left the warped Wonderland.Which was a relief.

Taking decent photographs was also a challenge here, because there’s so little there. Nguyễn Trãi contains a lot of interesting little stores worth exploring. Zen Plaza, however, isn’t one of them. It’s odd, but not in a good way.

#2685: Nissin Cup Noodles Veggi Manchow

by Hans "The Ramen Rater" Lienesch @ The Ramen Rater

This is one we found at an Indian grocery in Pleasanton, California this Summer.

Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about […]

A delight from Delhi

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

I was in need of a food delivery & thought I would try out the ordering service of ‘foodpanda’. Clicking through what seemed like endless options, Taj Mahal grabbed my attention. The free delivery, very reasonable prices & the appeal of Indian cuisine meant my decision was made. After opening my account, which was a simple process, my order was placed. As it was my first order I received a confirmation call & was told that my food would arrive in 45 minutes.

An hour later, I received a call & my food had arrived. It was delivered by a lady, smiling & eager to hand me my food. The delivery time really did not matter as the steam filled bag confirmed that it was hot & ready to devour. On opening the individual containers, I was very pleased to see that they had included a ‘salad’, a nice touch that I have not encountered elsewhere.

With regards to the food, I was not disappointed. However, I did find the ‘garlic & cheese’ nan to be lacking in cheese, in fact it was completely absent. The biriyani was perfectly cooked & a contender to meet the best I have ever had. The paneer was also very good, although I found the consistency to be different to other paneers, still tasty but not top notch. The tikka masala I found to be a bit over salted, not unbearably so but it was apparent. However, I was unable to finish it all & once reheated the next day, it all tasted even better, the tikka had become truly sublime.

I will order from Taj Mahal again, without any hesitation, the well-priced menu, wide selection & superb taste make it a must try for any fan of Indian fare.

Beers & free frames

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Banana bar is in a good location in D.7, it is an unimposing enterprise with a few seats available outside. I have ventured here on a few occasions & it has never been overly crowded. I like this as the main reason I go is to take advantage of the free pool table. It’s not a bad table & serves its function well although there are better tables elsewhere.

Price wise, Banana bar is a bit cheaper than alternatives in the city centre, a Heineken is 35,000đ & Beer Saigon is 30,000đ. It has a good range of beverages including some on draft such as Tiger. There is a happy hour starting at 5.30pm when draft beers go as low as 25,000đ. Snacks are also available & during happy hour these are priced as low as 40,000đ.

With regards to décor, it is fair to say that this place needs sprucing up. It just feels like it is lacking some TLC & a general polish or a coat of paint would certainly raise the whole feel of the establishment. The original owner was certainly on the right track but it seems that the current proprietors did not inherit his passion.
The service is fine, nothing great & no reason to complain. The staff are gracious enough & seemed to enjoy gawking as we played pool. That’s fair enough but I did find it rather invasive, although it meant that the replenishment of drinks was never delayed. If you are in the vicinity of the bar & need a drink with the chance of free pool then Banana bar is the place to go.

Recipe: Buffalo-Style Pork Ribs

Recipe: Buffalo-Style Pork Ribs

by Mummy's Kitchen @ Beyond Norm

Are you game for a change? I’m quite certain that you have heard of or tried Buffalo Wings before, but have you ever heard of or tried Buffalo Pork Ribs? Initially, when I made my Buffalo Ribs, I was sceptical about the outcome but was so delighted that it turned out tasty and flavourful. In our opinion, it’s even better than the wing’s version. The ribs were slightly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.  They tasted superb with the blue cheese dip and hot sauce. Yes, blue cheese; you might say, ‘Eeee”. I said that too when I first made it, but this sauce with the ribs was like a perfect match! If you are thinking of something different this festive season, how about trying out this recipe to appease the taste buds of those who are adventurous and wants a real kick (you can level up the spiciness by adding more hot sauce) to start the new year!! Hope you will try this recipe! Be generous and give us some feedback/comments …

Recipe: Herb-Crusted Pork Roast

by Mummy's Kitchen @ Beyond Norm

Christmas is just around the corner and Mummy’s Kitchen has been busy cooking up a storm to create new and interesting dishes for our readers. I always feel that something is missing if there isn’t a roast on the table during Christmas. However, I wanted a dish that was quick and simple to prepare, whilst looking impressive!! Not easy right? After browsing through numerous recipes on the internet, I decided to cook an herb crusted pork roast! I hope that you will enjoy this as much as us. I certainly have my family’s thumbs up for this dish. I tried this recipe with pork loin and with bone-in pork loin. Personally, I felt that it is easier to slice the pork loin without the bone. However, I think my hubby loved the one with the bone-in more as he cleaned it all up.  This showed how much he enjoyed it! We love to hear from you so once you have tried this recipe, we hope that you could provide us with some feedback/comments either via …

Recipe: Prawn Paste Chicken (Har Cheong Gai)

Recipe: Prawn Paste Chicken (Har Cheong Gai)

by Mummy's Kitchen @ Beyond Norm

Deep fried stuff is unhealthy, who doesn’t know that right? However, deep-fried chicken is just so good that occasionally I still enjoy it. Especially these Har Cheong Gai (in Cantonese it literally means Prawn Paste Chicken), they are crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside and the intense savoury flavour is just so irresistible!! Bet this is even better than eating KFC. Har Cheong Gai is first marinated and then dipped into a batter or dusted with a flour mixture and left to marinade overnight before deep frying it the following day. WARNING:  The moment you open the bottle of Shrimp Paste, the smell will “stink up” the whole house so ensure that you close all the rooms’ doors and open your windows. I kind of over exaggerated but the smell might be too overpowering for some. Once you have tasted Har Cheong Gai, it will be a different story altogether. I believe you will love it! If you like this recipe, be generous and give us some feedback/comments via our blog. We …

Zoom With A View

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Zoom has been a haunt of mine for years & has been the venue for many reunions. I have a personal fondness for the place but shall remain impartial for the sake of a beneficial review.

Set on a busy corner near Bùi Viện, Zoom does suffer from road noise & a fairly steady flow of hawkers which can at times become testing. However, the well selected music which is played at an appropriate volume does well to counteract the traffic din. In addition the staff here are always friendly & seem to be very content in their roles as Zoom staff.

When eating here, I usually go for a burger as they are consistently good & from 115,000đ with a free beer, the price is certainly competitive. The menu is broad with everything from Mexican to all day breakfasts. I have never been disappointed with the servings here & am yet to meet anybody that has been.

It is also worth noting that there is a happy hour from 7pm to 10pm when Huda or Saigon Green beers are a mere 10,000đ. After 10pm further offers are available. The owner of Zoom also conducts Vespa tours which has proved to be very popular with tourists visiting Saigon. The appreciation for Vespa is further proven by nostalgic Vespa items adorning the walls.

Zoom gets 4 stars, really I cannot fault any aspect here, it’s a shame that there is no longer outdoor seating but that is something that is certainly beyond the bars control. I recommended a visit for an evening drink or meal whilst enjoying decent music and watching the, at times, frenzied traffic.

Another dull shopping mall

by Joe Buckley @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

I’ve basically summed it up already. Parkson is just another dull shopping mall, full of people who have attached a large part of their identity to their consumerism. And people who think that buying lots of stuff makes them happy. And people who like to flash their cash with gaudy and kitschy jewellery, clothes and make-up of questionable taste.

This is where independence comes to die. An overly-clean place full of characterless tiles and characterless shoppers, shopping for characterless brands, such as Marc Jacobs, Lacoste, Calvin Klein, and lots of others with forgettable names that I’d never heard of before. Although if I said that while I was in the place I would probably have been branded a heretic.

There’s not too much fun anyone can have in this place, especially if you’re doing your best to hold back tears as you look around and realise just how hegemonic corporate late capitalism can be.

Despite all this, it’s got a great bowling alley. So if you want to do some ten pin bowling, go there. If you don’t, never ever step food inside the place. Unless, of course, you’re a completely vacuous person who just wants to buy more stuff.

Recipe: Mediterranean Grilled Lamb

Recipe: Mediterranean Grilled Lamb

by Mummy's Kitchen @ Beyond Norm

I first stumbled upon this recipe from Safeway Supermarket back when I was staying in the United Kingdom. Being a novice in preparing and cooking lamb, it was such a useful guide. What fascinated me about this recipe was it was unlike the usual recipe which uses rosemary, as I was no fan of this herb then. I believe that you will absolutely fall in love with this dish, even if you’re a lamb “hater”, because the smell of the lamb is so well covered up by the garlicky and lemony marinade. Are you someone who loves food or cooking but are always stuck in a food rut, like experimenting new ways of cooking chicken or beef to impress your family or guests, why limit yourselves to the same types of meat? How about broadening your horizons by adding lamb into your menu for this festive season? However, be mindful that though lamb has protein, minerals and vitamins which are beneficial to our bodies, it also has saturated fat, calories and purines which can hurt …

Stuffed Aubergines with Spiced Minced Meat

Stuffed Aubergines with Spiced Minced Meat

by Mummy's Kitchen @ Beyond Norm

Planning to invite family members or friends over this festive season and still unsure as to what to cook?  Stuffed Aubergines with Spiced Minced Meat is a quick fix but still an elegant dish. You literally do not need to be a cooking expert to cook this dish. I just used the spices which I had available in my kitchen to make it. You can add herbs such as thyme, parsley, or oregano, or even chilli flakes to increase the intensity of the flavour. If you can get hold of the Italian Eggplants, it will be great for this dish, as they are larger and fatter, and the flesh tends to be more tender. Otherwise, like myself, I used the small aubergines which I found in the market and they were great as well. Hope you enjoy this dish as much as we did! If you like this recipe, be generous and give us some feedback/comments via our blog. We would also like to welcome you to join our Mummy’s Kitchen Facebook Group for food lovers like …

Recipe: Split Mung Bean Dessert with Chinese Cruller (Lek Tao Suan with You Tiao – 绿豆爽油条)

by Mummy's Kitchen @ Beyond Norm

As you may have observed by now, I am not a diehard dessert person. But some desserts do have a hold on me and one of them is this Lek Tao Suan with You Tiao. I literally grew up with this kind of desserts, not cupcakes or cheesecakes. Yet another nostalgic food that brings back childhood’s memories! This is a Teochew dessert which is commonly known as Lek Tau Suan. It is usually served with Chinese cruller or you tiao. It is believed that mung beans have a cooling effect and can aid the body in reducing heatiness. Whatever it is, this starchy and gooey concoction is so good that it will warm your stomach and your heart! Mind you, you will not stop at 1 bowl! If you have not tried this before, give it a go. It is so easy to cook and just thinking of it makes me want to cook it again tomorrow …. Hope you will try this recipe and be generous and give us some feedback/comments via our blog. …

Food Review: Sorae Restaurant & Lounge, Saigon

Food Review: Sorae Restaurant & Lounge, Saigon

by Joel @ Beyond Norm

Within the bustling city of Ho Chi Minh City, lies Sorae Restaurant & Lounge on the 24th and the 25th floors of AB tower. It gives an amazing panoramic view of the city along with its modern “Japanese” inspired furniture and decor. We started off the meal with the Live Canadian Oysters (1 for 110,000 VND, 6 for 595,000 VND). The Oysters were very fresh and slurping it down with the grated chilli radish and ponzu sauce gives it a really good kick to wake your taste buds up. Next up was the Spicy Hotate Karayaki (150,000 VND). The sauce was very interesting as it was similar to spicy mayo but at the same time, the texture and the flavour were different. It is really worth a try! Suddenly the smell of truffle permeated the room, the Foie Gras Chawan Mushi Truffle An (195,000 VND) had just been served. Honestly, Chawan Mushi is not a very interesting dish, but the truffle gave it another layer of complexity and flavour. The Foie Gras had been lightly …

A peaceful park

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Tân Cảng Park is located in Bình Thạnh District, not far from District 2. It is within fairly reach of Thảo Điền Pearl Building so it is an ideal respite for residents living there.

On approaching the park, I was struck firstly by the quietness of the area then by the abundance of bright flowers. The park is not far from a main road but it does not overly suffer from the constant hum of the traffic. It is also bordered by the Saigon River. In addition to the masses of beautiful flowers, there are tennis courts, tables & ‘huts’ that I presume are used for cooking & serving food. They are quite ingenious looking & would not be out of place on a tropical island. The eating area & general layout suggest that this is a popular spot for wedding receptions and the setting for wedding photographs. Indeed the trees & flowers would undoubtedly provide a lovely back drop for a memorable occasion.

The palm trees, greenery & water features all tended to by devoted gardeners make this a peaceful place that is well worth a visit. This is the type of park that is ideal for laying back & diving into a good book, the tranquillity & lovely grounds will surely enable even the most stressed person to unwind.

Due to its location I would not make a special trip, however if passing by, it certainly deserves a stop & a meander. Five stars for Tân Cảng Park & next time I shall return with a book & a picnic.

#2678: Maggi Hot Heads Barbeque Pepper Noodles

by Hans "The Ramen Rater" Lienesch @ The Ramen Rater

Here’s another from the spicy Hot Heads series from Maggi India. From the picture, it certainly looks tasty – although the picture doesn’t show a barbeque pepper but an onion or shallot. Regardless, I would have to say the onion is my favorite vegetable. I could eat onions on anything – Well, maybe not pie. […]

A lovely place

by Joe Buckley @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

When I first heard about this market, I was excited to visit – Vườn chuối means ‘banana garden’, and I thought that I’d be entering into a world combining The Secret Garden with banana plantations (minus the labour exploitation).

I was quickly put right however, as friends told me that it’s not a garden or particularly related to bananas. It is, however, a market. Disappointed, I went online to see what other people thought about the market, and was met with a tidal wave of positivity – some people even declared it to be Saigon’s best market. My enthusiasm was renewed, so I set off for a snoop around.

If it isn’t Saigon’s best market, it certainly comes pretty close. Housed in a nice building, the market combines all the best bits about other markets – some busy areas, some quiet areas, some pedestrianized areas, some areas with motorbikes whizzing through, some dark areas, some light areas… the list goes on. The stalls, range from nearly looking like real shops, to nearly looking like wandering street sellers. All this diversity and variety – amazing given the market’s relatively small size - makes visiting the market a really fun experience, made even more so by the jovial and helpful people who work in the market.

The stuff for sale is just as varied – ranging from clocks and gold to raw meat and vegetables, via cloth, bakeries, tinned food, health and beauty, etc. etc. One of places to go when you want to by something, but you’re not quite sure what.

#2679: MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodle

by Hans "The Ramen Rater" Lienesch @ The Ramen Rater

This is the MyKuasli Penang White Curry Noodle variety that comes from Singapore – rather it’s made for Singapore. I don’t believe it’s different except for the packaging, but to be honest, any chance UI have to review another MyKuali pack is worth it to me to do so. It’s just a no-brainer; I love […]

Terrific Asian-fusion

by Ouassini Fertas @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Located right in the center of the city, Aura is a new restaurant that specializes in Asian fusion food. Opened by the owner of the well-known (and by the way excellent) Ciao Bella and Saffron, Aura has some prestigious older sisters to make proud! So, let me tell you that my expectations were high…

From the moment we entered there we knew we would be well taken care of. The very welcoming staff offered us a complementary glass of sparkling wine and appetizers while waiting for our other friends, which I truly appreciated as a good customer service is not common in Saigon…

The menu is appetizing and you would probably not find anything alike elsewhere in the city. Actually I had the feeling I could not really make a wrong choice… However, on the manager advice I chose a Salmon tartar and a five-spice Salmon while my friends ordered other house’s specialties. From the starters to the mains including drinks, not a single thing went bad, everything was perfect! Even more, they managed to surprise me with a mix of tastes I had never experienced before.

Aura has all the ingredients to become a star on Saigon dinner’s stage and hopefully I will be lucky enough to eat there one more time before coming back to France for a few months. At least it will surely be the first restaurant I will go to when I come back.
