Crossing off yet another "must try" on my HUGE food list, last night we tried White Rose dumplings! These are a specialty of Hoi An and you cannot find them anywhere else. It is said that if visitors have not eaten White Rose dumplings they have not yet enjoyed the taste of the ancient town! The dumplings are made from two small rounds of rice paper with a small spoonful of meat or shrimp filling in the center. When the rice paper is steamed, the edges get soft and chewy and curl a little, making the dumpling look like a white flower (rose). Ingredients like shrimp and pork are placed on top the carefully folded noodles and topped with crispy shallot. The unique dipping sauce is made of shrimp broth, hot chilies, lemon and sugar. Water must be collected from the old Ba Le well, which is filtered and purified 15-20 times before being mixed with the rice paste to form an airy dough.
We're out here enjoying the fall colors and flavors at @ocgpfm today! Stop by to say hello and chow down on some seriously good eats!
