Water-lily flower is a species of freshwater, “Bau” in the local language is an area of about 126ha area by the water. Around it is very dense green bamboo. It wrapped inside villages. Depending on the season, in the “watchful” people grow enough crops.


From January to February lunar half, Water-lily has two unique delicacies, it is Crucian carp and water lilies. Previously this season under the watchful Crucian carp abound. Crucian carp here for delicious meat and almost become a brand name, “crucified” in the minds of many people when it comes to this place: Fish crucian Water-lily! Fresh Crucian carp cook delicious but also what is most delicious ginger warehouse, cooked with green tomatoes in New neighbors (village of Hoa Da) is unparalleled. In the past, many people fascinated salad Water-lily Crucian carp, but now people eat this very rare because of the risk of liver fluke.Recently, not knowing why the intercession of Crucian carp clearly reduced.

Now It’s immediately to the season is the season Crucian carp lilies.These shoots mud prolonged accumulation vitality rise, cover tightly round leaves and flowering water. Lilies here with dark purple, green white, opalescent; they hatch from dawn to dusk, closed within about weeks. Season-lily Water lilies in bloom, the last one also surprised with simple strokes, its gentle tonality. People picking themselves (stem) processing lilies delicacies such as pickled, mixed vegetables, salad … the meals more colorful. One of the dishes are far more people to heart when this land was the salad lilies.

Cotton stalks break double break three, stripped shell, cut into short, clean. Pork, ground beef tenderloin or shrimp poached for little undercooked and then chopped. Fresh lemon juice, fish sauce, sugar and pepper gun cotton, meat, shrimp mixed in. Roasted peanuts scattered disk, add the sliced ​​peppers nine points, herbs of all kinds … so simple, but we had a dinner salad tasty tart lilies. Was it because of a dip in the mud for a long time that human water yet, under the Water-lily plants should also sound delicious tingle. After Crucian carp, water lilies, not to mention the shady, eel. Ram clean, keep tiles, more natural. Spices for food is simply madness stalks lemon grass and chilli couple, pepper, pickled, marinated in technology … and then ram on hot oil.
