Have you ever heard of “phở” – a famous Vietnamese noodle soup that has been on many restaurants’ menus, the delicious and convenient “bánh-mì” sandwich that you have only seen through the pictures, or the spring rolls which you can try in many variations? If you have heard or probably tried them already, you already had a clue of Vietnamese food – a cuisine that combines both yin and yang, nature and human, look and taste altogether, is for a fantastic meal that you will enjoy. Not only Vietnam offers you a glimpse of its gorgeous landscape with many essential highlights, the country also has a huge Vietnamese food culture that awaits you to discover, which makes Vietnam become one of many visitors’ favorite tourism destinations.
As Deborah Cater has once said, “You have to taste a culture to understand it”, cuisine is a huge and quintessential part in every culture. It is also the easiest way for you to learn and appreciate the diversity of your travel destination. If you are a food lover, or just simply one who loves trying new dishes, Vietnamese food will be an ideal suggestion for you to think about. From traditional to modern dishes, from the original to the improvisational, Vietnamese cuisine has a lot for you to taste and discover while travelling to Vietnam. You can choose to enjoy the meal in a luxurious restaurant, or a simple one at a local street food vendor since they will both give you pleasure of good food and nice atmosphere. Moreover, you can take part in a cooking lesson to have yourself a fascinating experience as a chef, while earning more than just your newly-found ability of cooking. From a simple dish like “chả-giò” to something more complex like a bowl of BBQ pork with noodles, everything that you can try and learn at once is always available, as you got to learn more about such ingredients, fruits and herbs in Vietnamese cuisine.
