HÀ NỘI — The Vietnamese version of a two-volume art book featuring popular streetfood in Hà Nội and specialities in different regions goes on sale nationwide today.

Compiled by writer Nguyễn Trương Quý and painter Đặng Hồng Quân, the book comprises colourful and humorous drawings of food. A short introduction and “where to eat” guide are also featurted.

The English version of the book will be released early next year.

Two volumes Lê La Quà Vặt (Streetfood in Hà Nội) and Ăn Quà Xuyên Việt (Streetfood Nationwide) are now on sale at VNĐ115,000 (US$5) each.

“Various traditional cultural values have declined in modern society,” said Quân. “I want to preserve them. Cuisine and streetfood are one of the best attractions for tourists.

“We want to introduce the signature food of Việt Nam, which can’t be mistaken with dishes from other nations.”

Nguyễn Thị Minh Thái, PhD of art, highly recommended people, especially foreign tourists, to read the book because the pictures helped overcome the language barrier. — VNS
