What Is Vietnamese Food?
Vietnamese food is known for its fresh and healthy ingredients and minimal use of oil. Because of this it is considered one of the healthiest cuisines in the world. It is also one of the most flavorful. The use of fresh herbs combined with the right balance of spices is what makes Vietnamese food taste and smell so good. Fresh fruit and vegetables are a huge part of the Vietnamese diet along with lots of fresh seafood and rice. Rice is the main staple from South to North, whether it’s steamed or in the form of a cracker, rice paper, or rice noodles. Another staple is mam, or a fermented fish sauce which varies regionally and is used in marinades, salad dressings and to flavor many dishes”
