…but mostly noodles
Vietnam is unique in the way that bread and noodles are both staples in the people’s diet. Most people know about Pho, but on my recent trip to Vietnam I found some other noodle dishes that deserve the same recognition.
1. Pho ga (Noodles with chicken)
The difference with this pho ga was that it came without soup. I would recommend trying it served this way because the seasoning of the noodles is tastier and you have the option of adding soup to your noodles as you like.
2. Bún riêu cua (crab noodle soup)
3.Bánh cuốn (steamed rice noodles filled with pork and mushrooms)
4. Bun cha (charcoal grilled pork)
5. Bánh đa cá (fish noodle soup)
6. Cha Ca La Vong (Hanoi turmeric fish)
The baguette might now be the same kind you’d find in Paris, but this quick snack is famous all around the world for its bright flavors. Try the pâté banh mi if you get the chance.
