Special meals

Green rice sweet soup is a typical dessert of Northern Vietnam. It has a sweet taste and a delicate aroma that reminds people of the autumn days in Hanoi. Cooking green rice sweet soup is not difficult but requires the cook to be meticulous, careful, and have a delicate culinary taste. Besides the traditional green rice sweet soup, Hanoians also add lotus seeds, green beans, or taro to enhance the attractiveness and offer more options for people of different ages.
On Vietnam Airlines flights, soup bowls are fragrant, mildly sweet, and moderately condensed, shimmering with the yellow color of green beans, mixed with the green color of rice in the white color of coconut milk. Green rice grains must be plump, firm, and fragrant with the scent of young rice. The new green rice seeds contain a lot of nutrients such as plant-based protein, starch, carbohydrates, calcium, etc. helping improve digestion and preventing cardiovascular disease. Especially, the minerals and vitamins contained in fresh green rice also help women beautify their skin and prevent aging.
