Vietnam – Food lovers paradise

I spent around one month in Vietnam, and I tasted the local food from the north to the south, and I could go the other way round again because it was so amazing.
To be honest most of the time I ate spring rolls and fried noodles – I even ate them for breakfast – because it is just my favorite food in the World. But apart from that, I tried the local specialties in every city, from Bun Cha in Hanoi to rice paper on the grill in Hoi An I tried everything. Veggie lovers can come to their costs too, but it is easier when you eat meat. I even tried a frog which was not that bad at all.
What I missed a little it was the food sharing culture from China. In Vietnam, everyone is typically eating one plate, and often the food is not shared while in China the group orders a lot of food and everyone is eating everything.
Here are the best dishes I ate (But actually everything was good):

Food in Vietnam
Chicken is the most eaten meat in Vietnam

Kem hoa qua: A typical dessert in Hanoi. Fruits with Ice cream
Food in Vietnam
Pho: The noodle soup you can find everywhere in Vietnam. Here with Chicken

Egg Coffee: This is one of the most amazing things ever. It’s very sweet and keeps you away. Born in Hanoi you can find the original one there.
Food in Vietnam
Bun Cha: A local once said to me ” If you are in Hanoi and don’t eat Bun Cha, you haven’t been in Hanoi”. This is the restaurant where even Barack Obama ate a plate of Bun Cha on plastic Chairs in 2017.

Like in China, the restaurants who look the most shitty are always the best. It is very common in Vietnam to eat on this tiny plasitk chairs with plastic tables. If you’re 1,90 meters like I am, it’s not the most comfortable position to eat, but it’s part of the experience.

“No risk no fun is my motto”, especially for food. Just try and eat everything you see and where the locals sit. In 99% of the cases, it is amazing even if you think at first ” eww no here I can’t eat.”

The only thing you have to pay attention is coriander when you love it, it’s fine, but if you, like me, hate it, you have to ask them that they don’t put coriander in the dish because there are a lot of recipes with coriander in Vietnam.
