10 Delicious Vietnamese Food To Try In Vietnam

Food has undoubtedly become more of a subject of fondness rather than just being a necessity for survival. Talking about the contribution it has made to the business sector, there has been tremendous growth in the food industry.  New food bloggers and restaurants are coming up each day, discovering an innovative class of the food.  But while most of the countries are known for innovation made in the food sector, Vietnam has still maintained it's old age class dishes, from varieties of seafood to mouth licking soups.  Here are the top 10 Vietnamese food you should go for in Vietnam:

  1. Bánh cuốn

One of the most famous popular dishes in the country, it is a dish having rolls with fillings of seasoned pork and wood ear mushrooms. These are wrapped in steamed and fermented rice batter, accompanied by fish sauce dip. Beyond the taste, lies the excellent method of its preparation.

  1. Banh Mi

One dish you might find on almost every Vietnamese street is this uniquely prepared sandwich, taking you back to the French colonial period. Taking you to the genesis of Banh Mi, the name came from 'Banh,' meaning bread and 'Mi,' saying wheat. It is a fusion of both Vietnamese and French culture, consisting of juicy chicken and pickled veggies topped with pepper mayo, chilli sriracha and soy. It has a price of between 10,000-15,000 VND.

  1. Pho

If looking for the country's signature dish, here it arrives, embracing rice noodles in a flavoured soup along with meat and beef. Pronounced as 'fur,' it is eaten as breakfast and available for 20,000-30,000 VND.

  1. Bun Cha

Typically a mixture of barbeque pork, noodles and fish sauce, along with a bit of sliced papaya, carrot and other herbs. You might have trouble finding this dish, but you can find it under its other name ‘Obama noodles’ since the person himself visited the country in 2016 and ate the meal. 

  1. Bánh xèo

Basically, a Vietnamese version of Indian dosa, made of rice flour, coconut milk and turmeric, filled with noodles, chicken, mung beans and sprouts. This crepe or pancake is also well known by the name Sizzling pancake due to the sound it makes while frying. The savoury dish has a price between 15,000-25,000 VND served with fresh lettuce or rice papers.

  1. Gỏi cuốn

Unlike the Chinese spring roll, which is fried, these spring rolls made from banh trang, i.e., traditional rice paper. Made of crispy salad, prawns and pork, and served with a sweet-and-spicy dip topped with peanuts.

  1. Chè

Indeed, a saviour for you on a hot day, this dish can be best termed as 'sweet dessert soup.' An all-year-round dish, made from varieties of ingredients, from kidney beans to grass jelly and tapioca fruit to coconut cream.

  1. Hu Tieu

Putting it simply, it is a ‘pork bone soup’ consisting of noodles and meat varying from cities to cities across the whole country. You might really regret if coming out of Vietnam without having this dish.

  1. Mi vit tiem

Maybe a bit less popular than the other dishes, but it is no less delicious. Mi vit tiem is a roasted duck dish with chunky egg noodles, depicting a mixture of Chinese and Vietnamese culture and flavours.

  1. Ca Kho To

Indeed heaven for the fish lovers, this dish makes a blast of sweet-salty flavours in your taste buds. Available in the southern parts of the country, this dish is made up of catfish caramelized in thick gravy along with a combination of different sauces.

Now that you are already dreaming of having these world-famous cuisines put this on your to-eat list when you are in Vietnam.
