Restaurants in Vietnam

Frequent visitors to Vietnam often say that to truly experience Vietnam, they must dine out. Vietnamese cooking is a symphony of subtle flavors and ingredients. With many of the restrictions of Western influences being lifted, Vietnamese cooking is being reintroduced to French influences. For regional flavor, Hu yen Anh is an open air cantina that serves only two dishes, banh uot nuong and bun thit nuong. Located in Hue, Vietnam, this tiny restaurant is a testament to the beauty and simplicity of Vietnam. It is one of the restaurants in Vietnam that you won’t want to miss. Often called “one of the prettiest restaurants in the city,” diners are just as impressed by the opium den screens as they are by the mi quang soup. Afterwards, diners can stop downstairs for some ice cream and people watching on one of the City’s busiest streets. Vietnam restaurants are now serving fast food and Pho 24 is one of the most popular. This extremely popular fast food chain serves the Vietnamese national dish Pho in some very unique and delicious ways. Perfect for eating on the run. Some of the best restaurants in Vietnam serve international food. They can be found in Ho Chi Minh City.
