Chinese New Year goodies

It’s the first day of Chinese New Year!
We’ll be visiting several places today to our relatives to wish them Gong Xi Fa Cai and catch up with each other.

Visited my mom’s place and then my in-law’s. We had lunch and this is the interesting part.

We had traditional Vietnamese glutinous rice with pork. A Chinese New Year dish in Vietnam. In the first bite, I can feel the softness of the rice and the 3 layered pork just melts in my mouth. Yes, it’s from Vietnam, given by friends of my father-in-law
Hope to try this if I visit Vietnam again.

This Pen Cai dish consists of pork, mushrooms, abalone, Fa Cai, fish maw, scallops, duck feet and vegetables.
Pretty exotic yeah?

Very tasty and a must have during Chinese New Year. It’s great with white rice.
