Overview: Vietnamese cuisine

What is Vietnamese Cuisine? A unique blend of cultural influences has created food with its own distinct personality

In simple terms, Vietnamese food is lighter and more refreshing than Thai food - using crisp, uncooked vegetables, subtle seasonings, raw herbs, and unique flavor combinations. Often described as textural, with fresh, sharp flavors, it is also more tropical and fragrant than Chinese food.
At the heart of Vietnamese cuisine, with its hearty kick and unique aroma, is the salty, pale brown fermented fish sauce known as nuoc mam. The cuisines of Cambodia, Thailand and Burma use a similar sauce, however the Vietnamese variety seems to have a more pungent flavor.
