Croatia is famous for its production of Lavender and Hvar in particular is famous for its endless Lavender fields. Now when you think of Lavender you probably think of your Nan or a relaxing bubble bath, but think again because the clever Croatians have managed to turn their produce into an incredible ice cream flavour that is so refreshing and unique to the country. Recently when our TruFam were in Croatia they tried Dark Chocolate and Lavender Ice Cream as well as White Chocolate, Lavender and Blueberry Ice Cream! Both were gorgeous and the floraly taste surprise a lot of people and converted them to the Croatian flavour. Our top recommendations for Ice Cream Parlours to get some Lavender Ice Cream is IcyBar in Hvar and Boccapiena in Dubrovnik. You’re in for a treat!



Now you are probably thinking - yes guys this is an obvious one - but its so delicious we want to make sure as many people as possible know about this one! Pho, often regarded as the National dish of Vietnam, is a delicious broth which is simmered for hours to create an incredible blend of herbs and spices. You can have Pho with flat noodles, banh pho, and a choice of meat, although it's often beef or chicken! Topped off with coriander, chillies, lime and more you can make this dish your own by adding your own garnishes. It’s the perfect dish to have in Vietnam and even better if you can sit on the tiny chairs down with the locals to properly immerse yourself in the culture. There are so many places dotted around the country to experience the incredible flavours of Pho and your tour guide will be able to point you in the right direction for the best Pho in the area! Enjoy - and makes sure you wear a Bib - iykyk!
