Outlook Traveller magazine lists five best Vietnamese foods you need to try
The Hanoitimes - Street food in Vietnam is an explosion of flavors. Salty, hot, sour and sweet – don’t forget to have your fill.
Pho in Vietnam.
The writer named pho the number one dish among the five street foods across Vietnam. “The simple chicken or meat broth is peppered with spring onions, coriander, noodles, and meat. It’s accompanied by chili, lime, garlic and sauces to flavor the broth with. I can’t tell you how good it is. I’ve had pho before many, many times but the refreshing taste of waking up early in Hanoi and heading to a street vendor for some pho will always be an experience worth writing about,” Outlook Traveller wrote.
Pho is followed by goi cuon, bun cha, cao lau and banh mi.
Earlier, Pho, Vietnamese iconic traditional food, has been listed among the world’s 15 best foods that are easy on a globetrotter’s pocket, according to a list released by UK-based travel site Rough Guides.
Pho is a bowl of flat, soft rice noodles dipped in a fragrant beef or chicken broth flavored with different condiments. It is served with beef or chicken, shallots and chili, and lemon to taste.
“The warming broth is eaten at any time of day, and is best bought from a hole-in-the-wall vendor, where it probably costs less than the raw ingredients back home,” Rough Guides wrote.
