Pho is called in the North are very different from the pho at Saigon. Food culture is also very different in each place, in Hanoi, eating places are usually crowded roadside restaurant, small, independent. At Central, we may find the market more focused cuisine. Saigon fell, busiest city, every food can be found on the same street cuisine.

Dining experience in Vietnam

Daring adventure.

Many restaurants in Vietnam (especially Hanoi) did not look like a normal restaurant. Occasionally, some restaurants are located behind the door for someone, they will catering for your family right in your living room. Many eateries around the trolley only crank with a grill in the summer. We used several times toward the people who are sitting on plastic chairs in summer eating, ordered food like them and have a really great meal.

Local learning

A golden rule is applicable in most parts of the world, especially in Vietnam, which is never in the Western diner as his only guest. Such restaurants are usually very clean, but the price is expensive, but the quality was not outstanding. Have the courage to follow the locals, stop at a crowded diner natives. Do not be too worried because they do not have a menu translated into English, please look at the delicious dishes seem most eyes, or is the most widely known and used body language expressions for sellers. Places like this always have good food with native flavors that price is only a fraction compared to the restaurants for tourists.

Do not expect to menu

By the majority in Vietnam sidewalk restaurant only serves a single dish, for example, only sells pho shop, usually only sell noodle ... You could just grab a chair turned away and in less than 30 seconds will be people bring a dish in front of you something of the restaurant, be it noodles, fried noodles, skewers ...

Drink beer

Vietnam is very hot so a beer will help you refreshments immediately. In the summer you can see the beer is sold everywhere. We bought beer from an elderly woman, sitting at the bar prior sale. The couple sitting next to her on plastic chairs, watching people pass by. Beer in Vietnam is very cheap, very tasty further.

But do not just drink beer bottle, try beer, a local beer is very cheap in Vietnam. These two words mean "beer", that is, we'll be drinking beer straight from the tap text, they are baked and sold out the morning on the day, to drink with lots of ice. Feeling beer breath was hot and humid during the day here.
