Top 10 Vietnamese Dishes You MUST try before Die

Over the past few years, Vietnamese food has become increasingly popular all over the world. Culinary lovers may have tried two of Vietnam’s most famous dishes – spring rolls and bread rolls. Rice, noodles, fresh vegetables and herbs all play a big role in Vietnamese food, making it one of the healthiest dishes in the world.


In Vietnam, you will discover an unmistakable truth: Vietnamese people like noodles. They eat them every day, sometimes for each meal. Vietnamese noodles are made from a few basic ingredients, most commonly rice, wheat and green beans, but the whole side dish is built on these basics.

1. Pho (Vietnamese Noodles)

The most popular soup of Vietnamese people, this flavoursome broth is also the most mispronounced country (‘fuh’ is the correct pronunciation). This brothel originated in northern Vietnam – near Hanoi, and went global in the 20th century with Vietnamese refugees. The broth is usually simmered with beef bones and spices and has noodles, beef or chicken and herbs. If you have ever been to Hanoi, go to Pho Gia Truyen and taste the Pho Tai Pho with beef breast meat.


2. Bun Cha

The most popular soup of Vietnam. Bun Cha: Barack Obama and famous chef Antony Bourdain met a bowl of Bun Cha at a standalone restaurant in Hanoi. That restaurant – Bun Cha Huong Lien, has now become an indispensable stop for gourmets and tourists. Hanoi’s quintessence is a meal and includes grilled pork, rice noodles (vermicelli) served with dipping sauce.

3. Goi cuon


The most famous dish in Vietnam: translucent spring rolls containing green vegetables, coriander and various combinations of minced pork, shrimp or crab. In some places, they serve with a bowl of lettuce and / or mint. A southern variation has grilled pork strips with green bananas and star fruit, then dipped in rich peanut sauce – each is as good as sound.

4. Banh Mi (Vietnamese Sandwich)


This baguette sandwich is filled with greens and a choice of fillings, including freshly made pâté and omelets, so great that it has been imitated all over the world.


5. Bánh cuốn(Vietnamese Rice noodle roll)


Family cake includes some dishes like steamed rice cakes. So soft and delicate, my favorite dish is this roll from an autoclave. Our Intrepid travel guide has brought us to a third generation roll master in Hanoi, who fascinated us with her skills. She scooped each scoop of rice flour cake into an autoclave, closed the lid for a few seconds, then carefully turned the thin sheets of paper with a bamboo stick onto a tray to fill chopped mushrooms and pork. Each bite is covered on pieces of fried chives and must be dipped in dipping sauce.


6. Chè


For dessert, try Che, a pudding made from sticky rice and beans.

7. Ca Kho To (Caramelized Fish in Clay Pot)

 Clay pot is kind of like Asian cousin of Dutch oven. The thick clay walls keep heat and moisture, help soften and caramelize meat when braised. In this dish, the fish develops a sweet sweet taste from sugar and fish sauce during the long process. 

8. Cha ca


Seafood dishes are one of the outstanding dishes of Vietnamese cuisine. Father ca, thought to be invented in Hanoi, is probably the most famous. It sees fried white butterfish with cumin and green onion, then served with rice noodles and some peanuts.

9. Bánh xèo (sizzling pancake)


Huge cakes, cheap and full of Vietnamese
Pancake containing shrimp, pork, bean sprouts and eggs, then fried, wrapped in rice paper with green vegetables and dipped in spicy sauce before eating.

10. Nom Hoa Chuoi (Vietnamese Banana-Blossom Salad)


Flower buds, or banana flower salad, are a great choice without meat. Lime and chili are the main flavors and add a refreshing punch to finely chopped vegetables.
