This is the Vietnamese Loh Por Paeng (Wife biscuits). Not sold commercially because of their short shelf-life, can keep for 1 week unfrigerated and another 3 days if refrigerated but then after refrigeration they become hard. These biscuits are only available during weddings. I bought them from the tour guide. Came in a woven bag .... 4 boxes at RM50
There are 10 packets of cake in each box ...... looks cute and delicate in those tiny little woven 'cups'.
Made of glutinous rice flour with a little bit of green colouring ...... green beans filling and a few strands of coconut. It's chewy and not too sweet, a rather yummy cake.
Vietnamese coffee, it's part of the optional tour, this cup of coffee comes with a small cookie, cost 40,000 Dong. All of us became millionaires in Hanoi, exchange rate is about 5,000 Dong to 1Rm
This piece of Carrot, walnut cake cost 35,000 Dong
And this piece of Black forest cake cost 40,000 Dong. Total cost is 115,000 Dong, wow, such a big sum of money! A bit of a headache figuring out the zeros though!
