Going abroad to live, most people assert that the most “coveted” thing is the dishes with the taste of home, especially in faraway countries, finding a dish or condiment. “Vietnamese standard” is as happy as catching gold.
Nowadays, when trade is developed, goods are moved by air, so it is easier for Vietnamese people far from home to enjoy food at home. The proof is that many Vietnamese markets have sprung up everywhere, wherever there are Vietnamese people concentrated, there will be a market and full of goods.
A woman tells a story about going to a Vietnamese market in Canada
However, because the shipping costs are expensive and the quantity is not “released” like in Vietnam, the price sometimes makes people “want to faint just looking at it”.
Recently, a Vietnamese woman married to a foreign husband posted a video on her personal TikTok account named @janemike06 (Western Vietnamese husband and wife) to share about a trip to a Vietnamese market in Canada that attracted the attention of many netizens with more than 1 million views.
Indeed, there are quite a few people who are curious about what the overseas Vietnamese market will sell and what the price will be, so let’s “go round” with this girl!
In the video, the girl @janemike06 said: “Seeing that I was craving Vietnamese food, today my husband drove me to this Vietnamese market, everyone. When I got there, I swooped in to get 2 bags of black beans to cook and drink to cool my stomach.
Then go to the vegetable stall. Over here, chili, onion, garlic, lemongrass, and lemon… are expensive. For example, a bag of chives (a chive leaf is familiar to Vietnamese people) costs 6 CAD (equivalent to 107,000 VND). Stop by and buy lemongrass or buy kumquats, you won’t dare to buy them.”
@janemike06 holds up a bunch of lemongrass wrapped in plastic for 3.5 CAD. The Vietnamese currency is up to 62,000 VND.
She continued: “Every time I go to the Vietnamese market, I have to buy a little price to eat pho. Anyone who likes to eat morning glory should “sell the house” and eat it, 6 CAD a bunch, I’m sure I can count 2 dozen stalks, not enough for me alone. I eat”.
After that, @janemike06 turned to the dry goods counter with a variety of items like supermarkets in Vietnam, which is dried fish, dried squid, dried shrimp, fish sauce, spices… However, price is also an issue.
She also said that anyone who wants to eat vermicelli and pho can go to the dry goods counter with bags of dried pho to keep for a long time without fear of spoiling. @janemike06 herself had to drive 2 hours over a distance of more than 100km to reach this market, so she also had to stock up on a few things to avoid wasting time traveling. She also said that she was born and raised in Phan Thiet, so she craves the taste of fish sauce from her hometown, but the market in Canada is only full of fish imported from Thailand, not the right taste of Vietnam.
“When coming here, those who crave for cod fish have absolutely no fresh food, only frozen food.”@janemike06 said.
Next, she shot a variety of Vietnamese herbs, but they were all very expensive, even if she only had to eat one meal, it would cost a few hundred thousand Vietnamese dollars to make a full bowl of pho.
@janemike06 ended his video with a joke: “Bring Vietnamese money over here to spend it is ‘dead’, everyone. Come on, it’s gone!”.
