Moscow (VNA) –
The third Vietnamese street food festival themed “Tet Viet” is taking place at the Hanoi-Moscow trade centre in Russia from February 16-18.

The event drew much attention from overseas Vietnamese people as well as Russian friends to taste traditional dishes on the occasion of Lunar New Year.

Russian people have an excellent opportunity to explore Vietnamese gastronomy, especially popular cuisines such as ‘nem ran’ (fried roll), ‘pho’ (noodle soup with chicken or beef), ‘banh mi’ (Vietnamese sandwich), ‘banh duc’ (plain rice flan), ‘banh cuon’ (steamed rice rolls), and ‘bun thang’ (noodle soup with pork, chicken and egg).

Other farm produce such as tea and coffee along with souvenir and handicraft products are sold at the event.

The festival also features a rural market, food making performances by Vietnamese cooks, national music and dances, folk games, and calligraphy.-VNA
