Cylindrical Charcoal Briquettes

There is life on the pavements of Hanoi that it’s not possible to use those for walking exclusively (people walk on the road in sync with vehicular traffic). The pavement is a living space where people park their motorbikes, buy and sell, worship (joss paper burning), eat, prepare food, and cook. After observing several cooking scenes, I’ve noted that people use cylindrical charcoal briquette for a stove purposely-built for it.

D’Airplane

From what has been passed on to me, the brand name came to be because long time ago their pots and pans were really crafted from aircraft aluminum scrap. D’ Airplane is an old low-cost aluminum cookware brand that’s very common in the country and still being sold in department stores.
