Being back home in Hanoi also means to counterbalance the food and drink excesses in Thailand
I started this morning with a diet breakfast of boiled duck egg – and Vietnamese coffee.
We like the duck eggs to be fertilised and bred for about 18 days. They are then boiled and eaten with fresh ginger and “rau ram” – a local herb called “Vietnamese mint”. Heavenly!
Don’t be put off by the “looks” of this. A standard chicken egg is also a bird embryo…The taste is real good!
