"Soy sauce fried rice with Cantonese sausages is actually not a Vietnamese dish. It’s so simple it can’t be categorised, really. However, it’s THE dish that my Father used to make during Chinese New Year.
Both my parents worked in restaurants in Malaysia, and back then, restaurant jobs were not well paid. Having four siblings certainly didn’t help with the financial situation so we didn’t get to eat a lot of meaty dishes, except at Chinese New Year, and that’s when my Dad would cook us this dish.
Putting it on the menu at Viet Food is actually quite a naughty thing for me to do but I can’t help it because every time I cook it, I think of my family. Now my son loves this dish too. It’s kind of my family symbol. It has become one of my customers’ favourite dishes but few of them know the story behind it." – Jeff Tan, Founder of Viet Food
