Why We Love Vietnamese Cuisine
There’s much to love about Vietnamese cuisine, as foodies will attest. Characterised by the extensive use of fresh ingredients, condiments, herbs and spices, all these elements come together flawlessly to produce a well-balanced combination of contrasting flavours and textures that excite the taste buds.
Some common ingredients you will find in Vietnamese food include fish sauce, shrimp paste and soy sauce. Moreover, who can forget the presence of fresh herbs and vegetables such as lemongrass, ginger, long coriander, bird’s eye chilli and lime, which give the food a refreshing taste that’s distinctly Vietnamese. It also helps to know that Vietnamese food is considered one of the healthiest cuisines in the world. Yet another good reason to indulge in Vietnamese fare!
You’ve never really tried Vietnamese food if you don’t have these quintessential dishes marked off your foodie checklist:
Pho: Arguably the most iconic dish from Vietnam, this popular street food is a bowl of brothy goodness. The heavenly combination of chewy rice noodles, thin beef slices and fresh herbs encased in a hearty broth makes for a simple yet effective meal to warm the hearts and stomachs of those who savour it.
Banh Xeo: This dish, which literally means “sizzling pancake”, consists of crisp, savoury pancakes generously stuffed with vegetables and meats, including pork, shrimp and bean sprouts, giving it an interesting mix of soft and crunchy textures.
Com Tam: Referred to as “broken rice”, this unassuming dish is elevated to the next level when paired with other ingredients for a delicious well-rounded meal. Take Com Tam Suon Nuong for example, where com tam is accompanied by juicy grilled pork chops, an egg and vegetables at the side. Delish!
Banh Cuon: The Vietnamese steamed rice rolls are filled with minced pork, wood ear mushrooms and shallots and served with sides such as cha lua (Vietnamese pork sausage) and a fish sauce-based dipping sauce called nuoc cham. An excellent dish for a pick-me-up at any time of the day!
