[Illustrations] From Street Snacks To Homecooked Meals, Vietnam's Diverse Cuisine Illustrated

While bánh mì or cơm tấm are considered quintessential Vietnamese dishes, bowls of homecooked cà ri gà (Vietnamese chicken curry) or thịt kho tàu (caramelized pork and eggs) are also central to the country's eating culture. 

In this series of illustration and mini postcards, KAA Illustrations, which is comprised of author Phung Nguyen Quang and illustrator Killien Huynh, delves into some of the most iconic street food staples and homecooked meals. The pair are also the people behind the children's book The First Journey, which won the Scholastic Picture Book Award back in 2015. 

 Take a look at the illustrations below:
