Enjoy cha ruoi in Hanoi

Cha ruoi is a popular meal in Hanoi when the autumn leaves turn yellow.
Cha ruoi is not available all year round. Ruoi is a type of sand worm that can only be found from the end of September to the middle of October. The short season is why Hanoians regard cha ruoi as a special but expensive gift from nature.

  • 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
  • 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.

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.
