Generally understanding

What makes Vietnam culinary so special? It’s because the traditional cooking is deeply appreciated for its fresh ingredients, the minimum of oil usage, and relying major on herbs and vegetables. In terms of Asian’s culture, it is about the yin and yang, the sugary and salty, the cookery and heating as well as the fresh and fermented.


Therefore, Vietnam’s dishes are also considered as one of the healthiest food on the world.

Consequently, it is easy to understand why the north food is heavily influenced by China’s cuisines. When you move towards the south, the flavor is more blending with Thailand and Cambodia. Besides, the tropical climate also creates more rice paddies, coconut groves, and herb gardens which are directly partake in the ingredients.

Unity and diversity

Each region sustains its unique gastronomy to be proud of, which all form into the “erratic diversity of cookery”. Chinese and French had left their influence towards the local culture during the colonial time that added more vibrant essence to the culinary. It will be hard to compare specific features of dishes from each region while travelers can soon find out that there is more than one a capital of food in this skinny country.


Coming to Hanoi, you will have chance to taste authentic and original food, while Hue offers its royal trait and Ho Chi Minh provides some of the most wide-ranging place for dining.
