Cylindrical Charcoal Briquettes

image

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.

Uling is Da King

image

I bought that small sack of uling at the leftmost side and it cost 100 pesos

Most households that use LPG or electricity for cooking still rely on uling (charcoal) for grilling purposes as the resulting carbonized flavor in meat tastes so much better than those electric-grilled ones. Even the smell of charcoal-grilled isaw and other roadside skewered meat is more inviting. Hence, when it comes to inihaw food culture of the country, uling is da king.
