  5 of the best foodie experiences in Asia (02/10/2018 11:30:06)
Asia is an expansive region packed with a diverse array of exciting food experiences. From the sultry flavors of Thailand to the exquisite creations found in Vietnam, let's discover 5 cannot-miss eating adventures around Asia.

1. Learn to Make Banh Xeo in Hoi An

Travel to Hoi An, one of the top foodie destinations in Vietnam, and discover how to make banh xeo, one of the country’s most celebrated dishes. This tasty crepe is a marriage of French and Vietnamese cooking methods. The rice flour batter is spread paper-thin on an iron pan and cooked until crisp and light. It’s filled with shrimp and a medley of fresh bean sprouts and herbs. This is a dish that takes skill and dexterity, but when you learn the art of cooking it from a local expert, you can’t go wrong.

2. Dig into a pork chop breakfast in Ho Chi Minh

There is nothing better than rising at the crack of dawn, dodging through Ho Chi Minh’s traffic, and settling in on a short stool at a roadside food stall for a taste of broken rice and pork chops. The best vendors marinate their pork overnight, so it’s tender and flavorful. They then grill it over open coals, filling the streets with a mouthwatering smell and luring in early risers. Served with sticky broken rice, pickled vegetables, and usually an egg, this is one of the best ways to start your morning.

3. Sample boat noodles in Ayutthaya

Thai boat noodles are another popular dish best sampled in its city of origin. Ayutthaya was originally founded around 1350 and offers streets rich in history, as well as shops hawking this incredible specialty. Originally vendors would ride little sampans through the rivers while serving the dish, but you can still enjoy the rich pork broth, roasted meat, crackling, and rice noodles served from the comfort of dry land.

4. Visit the Pepper Plantations of Kampot

The Kampot pepper has grown in Cambodia for centuries and is considered among the world’s finest. Noted for its intensely floral bouquet and delicate flavor, this amazing peppercorn was cultivated as early as the 13th century, but production exploded during the French protectorate over the country. Production was almost completely destroyed during the Khmer Rouge period, but today the plantations are considered important symbols of Cambodian regeneration.

5. Browse Ningxia Night Market in Taipei

Taiwan is renowned for its snack culture, and there’s no better place to sample the full range of delicacies than at the Ningxia Night Market. Although this is not the largest night market in the city, it is one of the most popular among locals, and you can bet the flavors are true to tradition. When the sun sets, wander through the many rows of lighted stalls, and dive into specialities such as oyster omelettes, deep-fried taro balls filled with salted egg yolk, and roasted sausage stuffed inside glutinous rice.
