Forty delicious Vietnamese dishes introduced on CNN

2011-10-06 (GMT + 7)

Pho, bun cha, banh cuon and many other Vietnamese dishes have been featured on the American travel website CNNGo.

“Vietnamese cuisine doesn't win any points for complexity. Many of the most popular dishes can be made just as well on the side of the road as in a top-end restaurant.” CNNGo writes. “But it’s precisely this simplicity, the subtle variations by region and the fresh ingredients that keep us pulling up a plastic stool for more,” the website adds.

Unsurprisingly, pho tops the list of delicious dishes. “What list of Vietnamese cuisine would be complete without pho? It’s almost impossible to walk a block in Vietnam’s major cities without bumping into a crowd of hungry patrons slurping noodles at a makeshift pho stand” the webpage writes.

The list includes dishes in Northern, Central and Southern regions in Vietnam and even dishes eaten between meals such as nom hoa chuoi (banana flower salad), hoa qua dam (blend of fresh tropical fruit) or che (sweetened porridge made of bean jelly, coconut milk, fruit, and ice).

Not only does the site introduce photos of the dishes, but also the best places to eat these dishes.

CNNGo, launched in September 2009, covers travel, lifestyle, personalities and latest trends in the most fascinating and vibrant places in the world.
