Vietnamese blessing

Vietnamese Spring Roll aka Goi Cuon 


Vietnamese cuisine is consisted of an variety of delicious food ranging from appetizers, entrees, and even deserts. However, if I had to write a review on it, it has to be no other than Vietnamese Spring Roll aka Goi Cuon as known by typical Vietnamese. Goi Cuon is a mouthwatering and  wholesome Vietnamese appetizer traditionally consisting of pork or shrimp, prawn, veggies, rice vermicelli, and rice paper, In addition to the tastiness, this delicious appetizer contains Vietnamese herbs that help facilitate your digestive system and excretory system. A minority of people believe that Vietnamese summer rolls originate from China since they are similar in form to Chinese spring roll. On the other hand, others believe their origins are from Vietnam since the ingredients are contrasting and they are served freshly instead of being fried. Highly recommend, go and give it a try. Thank you for your support, stay tuned and updated. Peace.
