Eating this Vietnamese dish was like attending a traditional wedding. Pure egg noodle, simply tossed with garlic oil, soy sauce, and oyster sauce; the bride was beautifully dressed with blanched beansprout and wilted choy sum, and finally accessorised with finely chopped spring onion, a few leaves of coriander, red cut chilies, and not to forget crispy fried shallot.


Although I visualised the groom to be crispy, the chicken was indeed grilled to perfection. Its flesh was so tender and I could see its juice flowing as I ran my knife through it. After a fragrant bath of five spice, pepper and honey overnight, its charred skin made my mouth salivated…


So if you were thinking of not coming to this wedding, take my advice and change your mind. You may get the chance to be the maid of honour or best man. Your choice!
