My favorite part of the trip is to learn how to make noodles and even try to do it as well. I didn’t expect to make the noodles that easy!
Here is how to make traditional noodles:
Use rice husks to heat up the furnace.
Mix the rice flour and coat a thin layer. After about 20 seconds take it out
Spread the layer on the wooden rack and let it dry for a while
Cut it using the cutter
Another exciting part is the colorful noodles. They are naturally colored from a variety of fruits and vegetables: the red color of Gac fruit (Momordica cochinchinensis), the green color of the pineapple leaves, the white color of the rice flour.
Hu Tieu pizza
This Can Tho noodle factory is also famous for its Hu Tieu pizza, so don’t forget to try it.
What is Hu Tieu pizza?
Rice noodles are called Hu Tieu in Vietnamese.
Unlike the traditional pizza with flour-based dough, the base of this dish is made from noodles. The chef fries the noodles quickly in a hot oil pan until they are golden, then take them out. Fried noodles are round as the base of a regular pizza.
The toppings on this dish are also interesting. Not using beef, ketchup, or cheese, the chef uses different toppings including salted shredded pork, eggs, onions, garlic, and peanuts.
This combination creates a unique and crunchy dish. And it’s very yummy too!
