Ingredients
  • 3 eggplants
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 chilis
  • 2.5 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 bunch green onion chopped
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • bamboo skewers or toothpick
Instructions
  • Use a skewer or a toothpick to poke all over the eggplants. This helps speed up the cooking time and also infuse the flesh of the eggplants with a smoky flavor after grilled. Put on the open-flame grill (char-coal is the best). Keep rotating until the skin of the eggplants turn completely brown or even charred. It will take about 15-20 minutes.

Food file: Ho Chi Minh City

Vietnam's buzzing southern capital offers a taste of the spice of life.

Food file: Ho Chi Minh City


Favourite flavours

Vietnamese cuisine is regional, so while you're in Ho Chi Minh City, be sure to try local southern specialties. Many dishes use similar ingredients but add different flavours. For instance, delicious banh xeo, or pancakes, come stuffed with pork, prawns and bean sprouts; hu tieu soup is also heavy on pork and prawns but the addition of crab, garlic, chives and other goodies changes the taste entirely. Fish fans will enjoy canh chua, a fish soup with tamarind, and ca kho to, which is fish caramelised in a clay pot.
