Q1. What is Vietnam’s famous food?
Pho, often regarded as Vietnam’s ‘national soul’ dish, is the country’s quintessential culinary symbol. A standard bowl of pho typically comprises rice noodles, beef or chicken, bean sprouts, lime wedges, and an array of fresh herbs like basil, mint, cilantro, and onions. Bun Bo Hue is also a popular dish. Bun Bo Hue is a spicy Vietnamese beef noodle soup. The main ingredients of Bun Bo Hue are rice noodles, beef, fermented shrimp sauce, pork knuckles, pig blood curds, and lemongrass. The broth of Bun Bo Hue is reddish brown and served with raw vegetables and sate. Sate is an indispensable sauce, helping to make the beef noodle dish spicy and aromatic.
Q2. What are the table manners in Vietnamese culture?
There are no special or mandatory rules for having meals in Vietnam. However, the Vietnamese often use wooden chopsticks instead of stainless steel chopsticks commonly used in Korean culture.
Q3. Can you recommend a Vietnamese restaurant in Korea?
There are many Vietnamese restaurants around Yeungnam University, so choosing which is the best is hard. However, in my opinion, I would say that pho da (Stone Bowl Pho) in Yen Yen Quan is so delicious that you should try it once. You can experience a different way of eating pho because there is a hot stone pot pho. When you order hot stone pot pho, it is served with a soup in a hot stone, and the ingredients come out separately, so you can put the ingredients you want and eat them. The Yeungnam Observer shares Vietnamese food with Do oc han.
Do oc han: I was so happy to introduce Vietnamese food. Reporter Woo Ji-yun: I never tried hot stone pot pho, so it was interesting. When I eat rice noodles, the soup cools and feels greasy, but these pho do not feel greasy because the soup is hot. Also, it was so lovely to drink natural coconut.
