The country of Vietnam is full of so many adventurous activities and things to do. However, a vacation in Vietnam should also include you eating a lot of Vietnamese food. All Vietnamese dishes are filled with healthy ingredients. Once you add in the unique flavors, your taste buds will be asking for more. You can easily try a new Vietnamese dish every day and still not have tried them all by the time you leave.
Since there are so many different Vietnamese foods available in Vietnam, you may feel overwhelmed. That feeling may have you wondering exactly what you should be trying first. And of course, it can also cause you to wonder if you are skipping over something delicious.
Pho is the one Vietnamese dish that no one should turn down when on vacation in Vietnam. This Vietnamese dish is a type of soup. It is prepared using beef stock, noodles, beef or chicken, and spices. You can easily order this dish wherever you are vacationing in Vietnam.
Bò Kho is a type of stew. It is usually served for both breakfast and lunch. The meat, which is usually beef, is simmered in fish sauce. Water, sugar, carrots, onions, and spices are added. I recommend eating it with a chunk of crusty French bread.
Cha Giò and Nem Rán is the name of Vietnamese spring rolls. The former name is what they are called in the southern part of the country. The latter is what they are called up north. No matter what they are called, they are delicious and well worth trying during your vacation in Vietnam! The spring rolls are minced pork and veggies mixed together and wrapped in rice paper. They are then fried until golden and crunchy.
Com Tam means broken rice. You will find this Vietnamese dish in every food stall around the country. Many of the locals order it for lunch because it is cheap and filling. This dish is prepared by placing meat and greens on top of a plate of rice.
Bún Bò Hue is a meal that is popular in Hue, Vietnam. The locals in this city love their foods spicy and this dish does not disappoint. To prepare this meal, the broth is made from beef bones, fermented fish sauce, and lemongrass. Then noodles, vegetables, herbs, and either beef or pork are added. Before the dish is complete, a little chili is added to give it a little kick.
Bánh Mì is a flaky loaf of bread. Millions of loaves are made every day in Vietnam. While some people will eat them plain, others will turn them into delicious sandwiches.
Bánh Xèo is a Vietnamese pancake made from rice flour and turmeric. A must-try during your vacation in Vietnam. These pancakes are served with beansprouts and greens for a well-rounded meal.
This Vietnamese food is mainly served for breakfast, but some people can eat it at any time of the day. It is basically cubes of rice flour fried and served with eggs and green onions. Think of yumminess that will melt in your mouth.
These are the best foods in Vietnam to try as you are eating your way through Vietnam. Your family may be leery of trying these new foods since they are not familiar with them. But I guarantee that once they take their first bite, they will be begging for more.
