Vietnamese cooking, a story told in exotic flavors and sights

This fascinating culture will envelop you while you visit, and the foods of Vietnam are equally intriguing. Spicy, fresh, and bright, Vietnamese cooking is sought out worldwide for good reason. In Vietnam, great importance is put on both flavors and freshness. Presentation too becomes the focus of each dish, and condiments are always bright and pleasing to gaze at. In Vietnam, all of the senses are treated to a meal. Soups are made with quickly cooked meat and clear bright broths. Noodle dishes spring to life with bright fresh citrus, crisp vegetables, and crunchy peanuts. Heaviness is avoided in favor of light and tangy full flavor meals.
