Little Vietnam

Slow down, enjoy a healthy, delicious meal

If you haven't had a chance to check out Little Vietnam, the new restaurant nestled near the Armed Forces Recruitment Center of the Bull Moose Complex on Hogan Road in Bangor, this may be a great time to check it out.

It's an oasis of calm amidst the bustle of the mall, with authentic Vietnamese cuisine that is as delicious as it is healthy. The business is family owned by Xavier Nguyen and Vanessa Nguyen.

More from abroad

I adore Vietnamese food, especially the zing in certain Vietnamese desserts. Most of the time, they add some freshly-minced or dried chili peppers in their sweets. Although once in a while I enjoy this tongue lashing, most of the time I want to taste the true fruit, unadulterated. So I took a popular Vietnamese banana fritter recipe and altered it many years ago. I forgot all about it until I was thumbing through my notes for my second cookbook and happened upon it. It is far simpler to prepare than the Vietnamese version and I believe much simpler and clean in flavor. If you want, by all means add some cinnamon to the batter, but remember, you will need to find Vietnamese cinnamon to be authentic (as well as about another dozen or so ingredients). So enjoy this treat two ways; see below.
