Favourite produce market in Vietnam, and 5 Vietnamese ingredients you couldn't live without?

Chau Long in Hanoi. The produce at the market is extremely fresh. Many local restaurants and hotels shop at this market, so the stock moves through very quickly. There is no refrigeration or hot running water, but there is no odour. Which is a sign of how fresh everything is and how hard the ladies work at keeping it clean. 

Ingredients can’t live without:
