Of course, people (both Vietnamese and foreigners) are utterly charmed by all of the natural beauties of Phu Quoc, such as forests with diverse breeds and sandy coasts. But it’s most well-known for another thing: fish sauce. So, if you go to Phu Quoc without visiting fish sauce making process, I bet you’re going to deeply regret later on.

GOING TO PHU QUOC TO SEE HOW LOCAL PEOPLE MAKE FISH SAUCE


Of course, people (both Vietnamese and foreigners) are utterly charmed by all of the natural beauties of Phu Quoc, such as forests with diverse breeds and sandy coasts. But it’s most well-known for another thing: fish sauce. So, if you go to Phu Quoc without visiting fish sauce making process, I bet you’re going to deeply regret later on.

2 ingredients for making fish sauce are fishes and salt. Many types of fish can be used here, but the makers usually utilize anchovies to have the best outcome products. The salt must be pure and preserved 3 months before being used to make all Canxi and Magie in it deposit to the bottom. When making fish sauce, the salt (with canxi and magie deposited) in the bottom will be eliminated. Moreover, all the ingredients must be very clean and fresh to ensure that the products are hygienically safe to use.

After the preparation, the fishes and salt are put together into giant vats to start the fermenting process. The ratio of fishes to salt is 3 to 1. Standard period of time for the fermentation is about 12 months, but depending on the makers’ own purposes, it can be up to 15 months.

Phu Quoc fish sauce from different workshops can taste different, because ones have their own tips and keys to make their own products more distinctive and delicious. But which ever workshop it’s from, Phu Quoc fish sauce does have some common features like the natural and delicious puce (because it was made of fresh and clean ingredients with perfect timing and no chemical color added), distinguishing smell (especially when you season your dishes with it), and so on. 

And when you’re finally there, don’t forget to buy and bring home some fish sauce. For me, I always think it’s better to get the products right where it’s from.

See you in next place of our discovery

  • FOOD TOUR ON MOTORBIKE - BEST WAY TO EXPLORE HO CHI MINH!

    FOOD FUN

    My husband and I had been recommended this tour by some tourists that had just done it. We were taken on the tour by Tiny and Juho. They were fantastic! They spent 4 hours taking us around and giving us an insight into life for the Vietnamese people. Along the way we were educated and well fed. The food was fantastic and in abundance. We felt completely safe and there was no concern about being on the busy roads. This is a must while in Ho Chi Minh!.

    EXCELLENT TOUR, WITH FIRST CLASS GUIDES TEE AND KENT

    We did the half day scooter tour, and couldn't have been more impressed. It was my partners first time on a scooter, and coupled with the HCM traffic she was a little nervous. Tee and Kent, our guides put her at ease right away. We visited temples, the flower market, motor cycle market, amongst others as well as fruit and vegetable produce from the Mekong Delta being sold on the banks of the Saigon River. We went up and down tiny alleys in areas off the main tourist areas. We got caught in a heavy downpour which added to the fun of the day. The supplied ponchos helped keep us dry. The guides, Tee and Kent, speak really good english, and explained things about the historical significance of certain places we visited really well. One of the best parts was our stop to have an authentic vietnamese coffee and we each chatted about our various cultures and interests. This has been my 3rd visit to Vietnam and I have done lots of tours and sightseeing, but this was right up there with one of the best things I have done. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone Thank you for a wonderful tour Tee and Kent Andrew and Maree

    A FANTASTIC TOUR

    My husband and I are not much into tours, but this one was great! A lovely way to see the real Saigon! Not to mention the delicious street food. And Sunny and his teams mates were very informative! We loved it! Thank you Sunny, Stan and the girls for a great evening!

  • GOOD FUN!

    A FANTASTIC TOUR

    What an incredible night of exploring "non-touristy" delicious street food all over the city! Sophie is an incredibly fun, knowledgeable, thoughtful girl that beautifully wove through not only the maze of crazy traffic, but also the maze of my picky eating!! I cannot speak highly enough of what a fun and energetic tour this is! I highly recommend this experience!!

    TINY FOR THE WIN!

    I did the food tour around the city, and was lucky to get Tiny as my tour guide. She was amazing! Super friendly, very knowledgeable, and excellent English. I actually ended up with a private tour with her, and time just flew by as she took me from one delicious place to another, and talked about food, Vietnamese culture, and life. Highly recommend this company and in particular Tiny as your tour guide. Hi Tiny! - Your american bf
