Vietnamese cuisines are popular amongst worldwide. The aroma from the abundance of food fills the city’s streets. There are many street stalls and restaurants that one is bound to never go hungry. Some popular Vietnamese delectable includes:
Soups and Noodles. A very popular type of dish is pho, which consists of rice noodles, complemented with either beef or pork, fresh green scallions, and a light beef broth drizzled with squeezed lime for a sour and tangy taste.
Fish and Meats. One of the highlights of the Vietnamese menu is its delicious assortment of fish, whether it is freshwater or saltwater. The more famous dish is cha ca, which is white fish sautéed in butter served with rice noodles and sprinkled with crushed peanuts for the finishing touch. Meats in Vietnam are either served alongside main dishes or presented as an entrée itself.
Vegetarian. For those wanting to skip the meat diet, the Vegetarian cuisine is also very trendy amongst Vietnamese. Buddhist monks, who were very conscious of eating healthier, first introduced the diet. Some appetizing dishes include a mix of onions, tomatoes, bean sprouts, various mushrooms, peppers, and tofu.
Fruits. Because of Vietnam’s tropical climate, there are a plethora of fruits. Some of the most sought-out ones are durians, bananas, passion fruit, lychees, longans, and mangos. Many times these can be complimented on desserts, such as shaved ice, or simply be eaten as a delectable snack.
Beverages. Quench your thirst with freshly squeezed sugar cane juice for your sweet cravings, fresh coconuts from the Mekong Delta, or wind down with a cup of coffee with some friends. Vietnamese coffee is usually made in an aluminum filter cup that slowly drips finely, ground coffee beans poured over hot water with a dollop of condensed milk. Better yet, if you want to immerse yourself with a larger crowd, try some of Vietnam’s popular alcoholic drinks including bottled beers like Saigon and 333.
