Vietnam is one of the most beautiful countries in Asia, and one with great variety in culture, nature, temperature and last but not least: cuisine. Vietnamese food is still relatively unfamiliar in the Netherlands; many people believe it to be the same as Chinese and/or Indonesian food. Everybody knows about Vietnamese spring rolls and bah-pau.
However, there are so many little known Vietnamese dishes that are definitely worth trying. The use of fresh vegetables and spices is characteristic of Vietnamese kitchens, and the result is a diverse array of flavours.
