Tet tranditional foods on Northern part.

In Northern part of Vietnam, Chung cake is considered the soul of Tet holiday. From a very long time ago, it is something that is indispensable on the altar of Northern people. Chung cake is pretty sticky and has a lot of fat. Therefore we usually need pickled vegetables to balance, that way the food will be more delicous and easier to digest. Another tranditional foods that I can’t forget to mention are : lean pork paste, spring rolls, boiled chicken etc.
