Vietnamese Recipes & Cuisines

Recipes of Vietnam

Although the cuisine of Vietnam has been inspired to a certain level by the Chinese cuisine, it would undoubtedly not be mistaken for Chinese food, for unique Vietnamese food features an identity and taste all its own. Rather than soy sauce you have the widespread use of fish sauce, nuoc mam, that is added during cooking. Nuoc mam is much more pungent compared to other Southeast Asian fish sauces. When it is unavailable, add a little dried shrimp paste to Chinese fish sauce to get a great alternative. However nuoc mam sauce (or nuoc cham), which can be served as an accompaniment with almost everything, is based on nuoc mam by having fresh sugar, garlic, chili, lime or even vinegar and lemon. The taste is sharper plus more pungent compared to anything the Chinese cuisine could offer.

Noodles and rice are definitely the staple food in the Vietnamese diet, however they have also developed a taste for French bread through the years and mix it with beef, cooked Vietnamese style, to make delicious, if considerably unorthodox sandwiches.

Breakfast in Vietnam is normally noodle soups. It is quite overwhelming by Western benchmarks, for it is redolent of fresh cilantro herb (called Vietnamese parsley), garlic and nuoc mam. Rice, together with dishes of seafood,poultry and meat, is the basis of the other meals.
