For many travellers, food is a crucial part of their holiday and something that has to be got right. Some are determined to try local cuisine; others may want the comfort of familiar food. Deciding where to eat at any market is always a difficult, and sometimes overwhelming task. Many tend to gravitate towards food stalls where other westerners are eating. However, these are not necessarily the best Vietnamese food stalls, but rather are those tailoring the dishes to a western palate. I would absolutely recommend being adventurous.
Every Night Market will have a great selection of food, with certain parts of Vietnam having specialty dishes. General food stand favourites, and mine too, are; Goi Con (translucent spring rolls) which are great for a refreshing snack, Pho, Vietnam’s National Dish (a noodle soup with pieces of meat and herbs), Cao Lau (a thick rice noodle dish with mint and a light soup), this is best in central Vietnam, and for those vegetarians out there, Com Tao (a rice noodle dish with vegetables lime and chili) can be enjoyed by everyone.
