Vietnamese cuisine encompasses the foods and beverages of Vietnam, and features a combination of five fundamental tastes (Vietnamese: ngũ vị 五味) in overall meals. Each Vietnamese dish has a distinctive flavor which reflects one or more of these elements.
Vietnamese recipes use lemongrass, ginger, mint, Vietnamese mint, long coriander, Saigon cinnamon, bird’s eye chili, lime, and Thai basil leaves. Traditional Vietnamese cooking has often been characterised with using fresh ingredients, not much use of dairy nor oil, interesting textures, and the use of herbs and vegetables. A leading soy sauce manufacturer’s research confirms that fish sauce (nước mắm) is the predominant table sauce in Vietnamese homes, where it captures over 70% of the market, while the market share for soy sauce is under 20%. It is also low in sugar and is almost always naturally gluten-free, as many of the dishes are made with rice noodles, rice papers and rice flour instead of wheat. In Vietnam, the early start of school and work means breakfast is usually rushed. If it’s 7 a.m. when your stomach is rumbling and your work is calling, but you still have no idea what to eat, we suggest you try the “Acai bowl”, which is delicious, healthy, but takes only a few minutes, get the acai and look for the best reviewed blender for acai bowls and start your healthy breakfast !
