That's about it. Just want to give you once again the overview of all the dishes in different angles. Look how great it is. Hehe but to give you a hint, it would not look that good if you dont have a great photo taker, hehe it's me. At least, I contributed something. Enjoy watching us eating! :D

Dau sot ca chua, made by... unknown (I guess either Thao or Thanh made it). But whoever it was, you can say it looks good, and of course taste good

Bap cai xao, made by Thao. I guess I dont have to give any comment since she's a great cook, so everything needs to be good when she makes it. :D

Here comes my favorite of all time: Thit kho tau (Pork and Egg cooked in Chinese style). Thao did an excelent job on this. No more comment, I love it!

Canh mang (bamboo soup) with moc (meatball stuffed with mushroom). One of the regular dishes that are often on the dinning table for the Tet. We got the bamboo in the Asian Market on Clevelend for a crazily...cheap price. And plus with the hands of Thao, it turned out to be a great dish

Banh Trung, one of a must have foods for Tet Holiday. We bought this from the Cleveland Asia Market, and then fried it. And be honest, it's one of my favorites food too. (Sorry, I'm not sure who fried it, so could not give credit to that person)

This is mien xao, cooked by Ha. Funny thing about this is: no offense, but it turned out to be much better than expected. And Thang, eventhough he didn't believe in Ha's cooking, he still loved this dish. He contributed the most in making the plate empty in the end :D Well done, Ha

Ok, here is spring roll in closer look. They were made by Thao, Thanh, Ha and Jenny. I can't give enough compliments to this. In short, just GREAT

Are you ready for this? Our big dinner to celebrate the Vietnames New Year. It was on Friday, Feb 11th, 4 days after the New Year Eve. But so what? It was great fun, we still got to celebrate our most important traditional holiday. The picture is like an overview of what we have for the food. Just to name all of the dishes: Nem (spring roll), Bap cai xao (Cabbage stir fries), Thit kho tau (Pork in Chinese Style), Banh trung ran (the fried square rice cake), xoi (sweet yellow rice), mien xao (stir fried clear noodles), canh mang (bamboo soup) and last but not least, dau phu (the tofu with tomatoes). Overall. the food is great, and we had great fun hanging out and chatting with each other
