Vietnamese food is so good, soooo gooooood.
Pho (beef noodle soup, which is served with a load of flavourings on the side to add as you see fit)
Spring rolls – these were Mr Beet’s favourite and we ordered them as a starter virtually everywhere we went. But the best ones were the ones we made ourselves on our cooking course.
Cao Lau (thick noodle soup with pork – to be authentic it has to be made with water from a particular well in Hoi An)
Various salads (including stuff like green papaya, jack fruit, sesame beef, shrimp, peanuts – always delicious)
Breads and pastries (unlike China, where the bread is horrible, the Vietnamese have their former French oppressors to thank for awesome bread and pastries)
