Dang Huy Quyet, the owner of a restaurant that sells “Pho” (noodle soup), one of the traditional dishes of Vietnam, in Tokyo, and his employees prepared 70 Tet gifts. These gifts included “Chung” cake and “Gio” (steamed pork paste) to give to Vietnamese students living in his neighborhood.

Quyet stated that having lived in Tokyo for 15 years, he understands the difficulties that Vietnamese expatriates usually face and their homesickness during traditional celebrations like Tet. He hopes to bring a feeling of Tet to them.
