Normally, I always write about how meaningful Vietnamese dishes are. I mean the traditional meanings and historic meaning, which belong to my country story. But today, this post will talk about the family meaningful time as the title showed you “childhood dish”.

In Vietnam, believe or not I can confirm that every child loves eating eggs. And eggs with pork and caramel sauce? Oh dear, that is the perfect combination to them.

Not only when you eat it but also when you cook it. The flavor, color and texture of this dish are really important but they depend on the taste of members of the family.

Since, when you eat, both cookers and who enjoys it can feel the love inside the dish. How special it is!

Oh, in terms of childhood dish, each kid will have its own caramelised pork with eggs dish. Why? Because each of them has its own mother and father, who cook this dish for them during their childhood. It cannot be compared that which is better?
