All the amazing food of Vietnam

My love for Asian food is already well known if you aren’t on the blog for the first time. Vietnamese food is one of the best in the world. So fresh and tasty everywhere in the world but just plain fantastic in Vietnam iself. I didn’t eat a single dish here which I didn’t like. Of course Pho for breakfast is amazing,

but let’s not forget the coffee which you can drink all day.

The first couple of days while riding with Phuoc, he was the one who ordered. You can’t believe the tastiness of this food.

Every day brought a new culinary adventure like this chicken in fried rice. See here how the chicken is revealed.

Another lunch brought us directly to coast to a place where you can see your meal swimming around. My favorite seafood place, everything is was delicious.

Of course once we were on our own there was only food for two to sample and we had to order what’s on the menu. Here for example at Les Jardins de la Carambole in Hué.

Salads in Vietnam are an explosion of flavors in your mouth. It’s never just one ingredient, it is a mix of crunchy and soft.

On Christmas Eve we stayed in Hoi An and went for dinner at Morning Glory Signature. The food was delicious and if a little cockroach was scuttling away from underneath the bamboo basket, then so be it. One shouldn’t be so fussy.

Once we got to Phu Quoc the food became different as well. As it should be because every region has its own dishes. Since we were on an island surrounded by water it’s obvious that we sticked with what came out of the sea.
