From yucky to yummy: 10 Vietnamese dishes that really cross the line

from yucky to yummy 10 vietnamese dishes that really cross the line

News website VnExpress has just released a list of Vietnamese dishes that may give you a heart attack but many say are very delicious. 

1. Nậm pịa 

This is a traditional dish of ethnic Thai people in the northern mountainous region. It is a soup cooked from a fluid taken from a cow’s intestine, frozen blood and internal organs of cows, horses and goats. 

This dish tastes a bit bitter and spicy. It is a favorite among locals during winter market sessions in mountainous areas.

2. Rat meat 

The rat here is paddy rat, and they eat mostly grass, sweet potatoes, cassava and rice. So its meat is said to be healthy and delicious. It can be cooked in different ways — grilled, fried or stir-fried. 

Paddy rats are widely consumed across Vietnam, from the Red River Delta in the north to the country’s rice basket, the Mekong Delta, in the south.

3. Coconut worm 

The soft, fatty and wriggling worm may terrify many, but it is a very favorite dish in the Mekong Delta. It can be grilled, fried or steamed.

Probably the most terrifying way to eat these coconut worms is to drop the still living ones into fish sauce until the worms are soaked in the sauce, and then you pick each worm and put it into your mouth.

4. Salamander 

Salamander is a wild reptile found mostly in sand hills in Binh Thuan Province.

It is usually grilled or stewed with Chinese medicinal herbs, or it can be used to make salad dishes and cooked into soup. 

Its meat is said to be nutritious and delicious.

It can be soaked in a tempura-like batter and deep fried, or cooked with rice porridge.

People usually catch cicadas during their moulting process when they are shedding their skins, as the cicadas, they say, taste the best then.
