Vietnamese food has long been considered as one of the healthiest cuisines in the world. With the heavy use of fresh vegetables, a lot of poaching and steaming in their cooking techniques, the Vietnamese has managed to get the most texture and flavors out of simple ingredients like no other cuisine can.
The most popular types of Vietnamese food, are the pho, rice noodle soup served in clear refreshing chicken, beef or even vegetable broth topped with fresh aromatic vegetables, as well as the Banh Mi, a sandwich using Vietnam’s own version of the French baguette that is more crispy on the outside and airy inside. On the streets of Ha Noi, you will see sellers of this classic sandwich in nearly all corners of the street, reinstating its status as a national staple.
You must certainly have tried Gỏi Cuốn, the Vietnamese spring rolls made with steamed rice flour sheets chock full with (again) fresh vegetables, shrimp or chicken, dipped in the variety of dipping sauces Nước chấm that we love so much.
