Banh Flan

 photo 20140226_091921_zps6ba25c89.jpgMoving to Vietnam almost 5 years ago meant that not only were we leaving our family, but we’d also be cut of from comfort Filipino dishes that we have been used to.

Well I know, we can cook that from scratch. YEAH RIGHT! But isn’t much easier and better just to purchase your favorite dish? I mean it’ll probably be more expensive if I do the cooking and the fact that I’d have to wash all the dishes, pots, and pans as well. πŸ˜›

Okay so anyway, there are some food in Vietnam that closely resembles our food in the Philippines. Like the banh bo or puto, theΒ hα»™t vα»‹t lα»™n or balut, and there’s the banh flan or leche flan. πŸ™‚

The flan here in Vietnam is usually served in small cups. But for us Filipinos, that won’t simply do. We need to have it in a llanera or like this —- πŸ˜›
