Luckyrice 2010 NY Asian Food market festival

It has been such a long time that we did not have updated the blog. We were pretty busy with a lot of events like food festival and also with the biggest of our life...our wedding me ( An Nguyen Xuan) and Janis Bui just got married in France in end of July. In the beautiful domaine de la butte ronde that my friend owns near Paris. Check out his website.
Here are few pictures of the last food festival we did, it is called Luckyrice Food Festival, the event was hosted by David Chang (owner/chef of Momofuku). Luckyrice replicated a night market like we commonly find in Asia and wanted to expose New Yorkers to the experience of a night food market like in Asia. It gathers a diversity of food stands from Chinese, Vietnamese, Malay, Korean.... It was a great event and it gathers so many people. We had so much fun to do it and we hope to redo it again next year.

Bun Bo Hue

The Special this week is Bun Bo Hue. It is a spicy beef noodle soup! Bún bò Huế originated in the old imperial capital of Central Vietnam, Huế. The broth is prepared by cooking beef bones for a long period of time, as well as a large variety of different spices including lemon grass and chili. Shrimp paste is also a very important ingredient. My favorite part of that dish is the pig trotter. That dish is such a comfort food for our cold NY winter by excellence.

Bep one year anniversary!!!

It’s true what people say. The restaurant business (especially in NYC) is not easy. But luckily, with great support from our friends, family, and fans like all of you, BEP will be celebrating our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! Yes, one year ago, we started popping up on Mondays inside Simple Café in Williamsburg. We had such a great response that we decided to open Thursday and Friday nights. Monday, January 25th, our special will be a take on an old childhood favorite…Bo nuong vi. Customers will get to wrap and roll their own spring rolls! It’s a fun and interactive way to start a new year with BEP.
Bo Tom Nuong Vi: Roll your own rolls with beef and shrimp and Mam nem ( shrimp and pineapple sauce)
Banh Mi Ga roti- Bep's favorite sandwich- Roast Chicken sandwish
Special dessert: Rice pudding a la mode "l'ami Jean" (famous recipe from Paris restaurant l'ami jean) topped with sesame briddle, apricot and creme anglaise!
Thank you for all your support!
