Vespa Pho Gaining international popularity, a steaming bowl of flavoursome pho is one of Vietnam’s most celebrated dishes. This noodle soup usually features clear noodles in a broth with beef or chicken and some vegetables and herbs. Banh Mi The French influence in the region is obvious when considering the popularity of the fresh baguette in Vietnam. Take crusty bread and stuff it with pork or ham, coriander, salad and pickled condiments and you’ve got a favourite lunch or breakfast treat for locals and travellers alike. Fresh Fruit When in Vietnam, take the opportunity to try exotic fruits not widely available elsewhere in the world. Rambutan, persimmon, mangosteen, dragon fruit, jackfruit and durian are all delicious snacks that can be bought cheaply from markets and roadside stalls.
