A trip to Vietnam is not complete without tasting the street food. With emigration and globalization, many Vietnamese street food dishes have become popular favorites around the world.
The iconic Vietnamese Beef Noodles or Pho Bo is perhaps one of the best known dishes and the Vietnamese spring rolls wrapped in rice paper or Cha Gio is another dish that is closely associated with the country.
With Vietnamese ingredients now easily accessible in Chinatowns and supermarkets worldwide, you can prepare these delicious Vietnamese street food recipes in the comfort of your kitchen.
Believed by some to have been a legacy of the French beef stew or pot au feu, the Vietnamese Pho Bo is one of Vietnam’s best-loved dishes. Slices of raw beef together with raw bean sprouts, mint and basil leaves are served with noodles in boiling hot soup, and get cooked even as they are being eaten.
