2. Các câu hỏi thường gặp về Barbecue

1. Do people in your country like barbecue? 

Sure! However, our grilling technique is different from the Western roasting technique and we also use rice as a staple food to accompany the meat. We have a dish called bun cha. In fact, it is a dish of minced pork that is marinated and grilled over charcoal, served with vermicelli and fish sauce.

2. What kind of food do you like to eat for barbecue? 

In addition to grilled meat, I also like grilled vegetables, especially potatoes. After peeling off the burnt skin of grilled vegetables, sprinkle some fish sauce on top and enjoy with rice. On special occasions, my friends and I also go to luxury Korean restaurants to enjoy Korean barbecue.

3. Would you like to have a barbecue with your family or your friends?

Yes, for sure, making a barbecue or hot pot is a way to bond with your family and friends. These foods are not too expensive, even cheaper when bought in bulk so people can pool their money and buy them. There are many steps in the preparation of barbecue so that each person can contribute to the cooking process, increasing the bond between the members.

4. Did you have barbecue when you were a child?

Yes, I did because my mother is a big cook. On some occasions when the whole family gathers, she is usually in charge of grilling meat to serve with vermicelli. I usually sit next to her and sometimes she will give me a piece of meat to see if it fits my taste.
