Dear Eistube, you did a great job with the Xoi article. Do you specialize in Vietnamese culture? Badagnani (talk) 20:40, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Nice to meet you. It's my pleasure to invite you to join Wikipedia:WikiProject Vietnam, where those Wikipedia editors who are interested in improving and creating Vietnam- and Vietnamese culture-related articles meet to discuss ideas. Just add your user name under "Participants." Happy editing and thank you again for improving the Xôi article. Badagnani (talk) 23:59, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Chả lụa[edit]

Hi, do you know the etymology of the term chả lụa? Does it come from Chinese? Badagnani (talk) 03:38, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Project talk page tagging for WP:VIET[edit]

Blnguyen had requested me for the service of TinucherianBot to tag articles in the categories in Wikipedia:WikiProject Vietnam/Categories for the WikiProject Vietnam. I request the members to kindly have a look , carefully verify ALL the categories and remove all the possibly wrong categories. Please Dont misunderstand by being cautious here , as we have faced many issues with such huge scale bot tagging earlier. Once I get the final go ahead, I will start the bot with the final list. Thank you for choosing TinucherianBot for the project,. It is a pleasure working for this project...I have also left a note at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Vietnam#Project_talk_page_tagging and request your comments there. You are receiving this message as you are a member of the project. Thanks -- Tinu Cherian - 06:42, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Bánh hỏi[edit]

New page: Bánh hỏi. See what you can do with it. Badagnani (talk) 06:03, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Another one: Vietnamese noodles. Badagnani (talk) 06:15, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Banh pho[edit]

This is the thing: the term can refer to the fairly thin noodles used in pho soup, but can also refer to the wider ones used for stir-frying. Right? Badagnani (talk) 05:58, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

OK, thanks for the info. In the Asian grocery store, one finds about 8 different widths of flat dried rice noodles, in clear plastic packages, made in Thailand. I didn't realize that they're all called phở. This should be made clear in the article. And I never heard of phở with very wide noodles. Regarding stir fried ones, Western people just don't know about that, because they think all phở should be in soup broth. Hence the reason why I think putting bánh phở under the "types of noodles" section would be beneficial. Badagnani (talk) 06:16, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

You said: "Hmm, some of them may be bún or miến though." Well, I'm not counting the very thin round vermicelli or the clear ones, just the 8 or so different widths of flat dried rice noodles from Thailand. Every store has this line.

For bánh phở, see how I did it. They're a type of noodle by material, then the dishes can be listed below. The soup, cold noodle dishes (bún thịt nướng), hot noodle dishes (bún xào - stir fried bun), and rolls can all be added. Just add whatever is missing so we have a complete article with nothing left out. Badagnani (talk) 06:37, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

I've gone as far as I can at Vietnamese noodles without the cultural knowledge you have. Can you add what's missing now? Badagnani (talk) 06:38, 29 July 2008 (UTC)


I propose to separate into "types of noodles" and "noodle dishes," as Korean noodles is done. So, we can have a section for the various types of rice, wheat, bean, etc. noodles, and another section for the noodle soups and other noodle dishes. Badagnani (talk) 05:58, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Banh tam[edit]

I don't know; it's the fifth image here. It looks like it's spelled tâm. Badagnani (talk) 06:51, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

OK, it seems like the packages are made by Chinese (who are trying to be multilingual to make more money with all the ethnic groups who might buy the noodles), and they don't get the diacritics right much of the time, because they don't hire very good linguists in each language! Badagnani (talk) 07:00, 29 July 2008 (UTC)


You're right. I meant "non-soup"/stir-fry type dishes. I can't think of anything better. There's a difference between "Dry" noodle dishes and "Dried" noodles. Badagnani (talk) 07:00, 29 July 2008 (UTC)


Thanks, I think I fixed everything now. Badagnani (talk) 07:05, 29 July 2008 (UTC)


Where did I remove any image? I simply moved it down, retaining the original one in the lead. Badagnani (talk) 19:40, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

I didn't know this. Perhaps there are two distinct varieties, then, the one we currently have in the lead being closer to the Cantonese Rice noodle roll. Otherwise I don't know how to explain it. The photo you added has many other ingredients featured and the banh cuon is way in the back, which is why I thought it wasn't the best to have at the top of the article.
