Vu Dino

The Vietnamese kitchen

Born into a Vietnamese family in Moscow, yet Vu Dino (Dang Anh Vu) has lived his life in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He is one of the most well-known food blogger in the country.

Vu Dino also grows to become a lifestyle blogger who approaches a healthy and dynamic lifestyle as a young and urban guy.

Ngon Ngon, his Youtube cooking channel, now hosts more than 150 recipes and attract hundreds of thousands of views for each video.

When it comes to food and cooking, I would love to bring a twist to our Vietnamese cuisine. I really love our Vietnamese dishes, which I learnt mostly from my mother. But sometimes, I’d like to add some changes here and there from the cuisines of other areas. For me, there’s no right or wrong in cooking, it’s up to the cook to be creative in the kitchen. As long as you understand the nature of ingredients and spices, you can always make a tasty dish.

For me, there’s no right or wrong in cooking, it’s up to the cook to be creative in the kitchen.
