please post recipe requests in one of the food forums I visit, there are alot more helpful people in there to answer your questions.

the recipe calls for pomelo flower flavoring, not pomelo flavoring, thus you cannot sub.

Hi hoangtam,Thank God you have this site in English. Your site has taught me how to cook various foods that I have been curious about in a very simple way. I was wondering if there are other English blogs for Vietnamese food that you know of? I was never taught how to read vietnamese so it is very difficult to decipher what the vietnamese blogs are saying. Can you please provide links and provide an English version of your Che Thai and the layered Agar-Agar. Thanks. My

i don't know of any other vietnamese food blogs in english. Since I don't know of any other viet food blogs in english I can't provide you with links to the recipes you asked for. It's never late to learn vietnamese... I had to learn it myself to read vietnamese recipes.

Hi tt,
I couldn't find your food forum links on the bottom of your site; I remember seeing a post of a url somewhere on your blog so I searched and searched. I struck gold! :) I found one.( At least I can translate the ingredients; I'll break-out my dictionary for the directions.
Thanks for your time and help!
