The Eastern part of the world has many interesting places to visit and is a contrast to the West. This has often led to travellers showing keen interests in learning more about the culture and lifestyle of these nations. One such country is Vietnam.
Exploring the Vietnamese cuisine can be quite interesting. The Vietnamese cuisine is different from its neighbouring countries even though there are certain similarities. One of the primary ingredients used in the Vietnamese cuisine is the fish sauce. The main ingredient used in the production of fish sauce is fresh anchovy fish. If you are interested in learning more about the production of this sauce then an ideal way to do so would be to visit a factory. One of the towns that has such a facility is, Mui Ne. Resorts in Mui Ne welcome visitors from around the world and are known to be great hosts. One such resort that can help its guest with arranging visits to a nearby fish sauce factory is Anantara Mui Ne Resort.
The fresh fish sauce is produced using fresh anchovy fish sauce which is then mixed with salt and a unique and traditional process is used by the Vietnamese to produce the premium quality sauce. The fermentation process happens once a year and this is during the fishing seasons. After about 3 months spent in barrels the liquid drips off which is then poured back into the barrel. The fish sauce is then finally ready in six months. The salty flavour and the fishy smell are considered to be the unique characteristics of fish sauce.
A local expert will guide you through the processes that take place at every stage of the fish sauce production when visiting a factory.
