About TOTB

A scrumptious blog about food,
travel, and lifestyle inspiration.


Developed from a humble blog founded by Nam Nguyen in the beginning of 2015, Taste of the bear is an international blogosphere based in both the United States and Vietnam, where we together discover the taste of food, travel and life. We provide audience with simple food recipes & credible restaurant reviews, as well as valuable travel guide & gentle lifestyle inspiration. At Taste of the bear, we are after stories – the stories about flavors and people whether it is global or local.

We are a small team living 8583 miles apart in Hanoi, Vietnam and Los Angeles, United States. It is the friendship, the common passion for food, wandering and sharing things that keep us together. Taste of the bear is an independent website with no affiliation with any company and organization. We aren’t paid or sponsored by any brands to recommend or to talk about their products. We truly respect you, and strive for dedicating the finest resources, products and promotions that benefit our value audience.

We are excited to continue to offer you a weekly inspiration about the glorious world of Food, Travel and Lifestyle that arrives in your email inboxes every Thursday. This email includes food recipes, photo journal, and small tips to celebrate the incredible present we called life. To sign up, just enter your email address into the box below!
