5 Vietnamese Dishes to Keep in Mind
In this report, we will introduce authentic Vietnamese cuisine that you must try when you visit Vietnam.
Nowadays, along with the increase in the number of Vietnamese residents, Vietnamese restaurants can be found in Japan.

When it comes to Vietnamese cuisine, many people would probably answer “Phở”. It is one of the world’s most famous Vietnamese dishes, and of course, it is still a national dish loved by Vietnamese people.
Pho is said to have originated during the French colonial period when the French used leftover beef and bones.
There are differences between pho in the northern and southern parts of Vietnam. In the north, a bread-like dish called Quẩy is dipped in pho soup and eaten together. In the north, it is usually eaten with quẩy, while in the south, only pho is eaten. The taste of pho soup also differs, with southern pho having a slightly sweet taste.
