Despite the varied landscape of Vietnam, all of the cuisine contains this brilliant balance of aromatics, heat, sweetness, sourness, and fish-sauciness. As with other Asian cuisines, it’s all about the yin and yang; the sweet and the salty, the cooling and the warming, the fresh and the fermented.

How do restaurants talk to guests?
Speak Appropriately Greet your diners the minute they walk in the door. Use respectful titles – sir, ma’am and miss work well. Don’t interrupt. Listen intently and pay attention to what they want.
When the waiter asks “Are you ready to order?” or “Can I take your order?” If you are ready, you can give your order. Use “ I’d like… ” or “I’ll have…” to introduce your order and expression “for starter/appetizer” to talk about the first course and “for main course” to talk about the second course of food you will eat.
What should I order first in a restaurant?
First things first. Ordering your food abides by that basic rule you’ve probably already been told since you were a kid: women order first. When the server takes orders, they’ll most likely go from oldest female to youngest, and then on to the men.
What do Vietnamese call foreigners?
Correct translations of “foreigner” are “ người nước ngoài” (formal), “người nước bạn” (informal or comedic), “người ngoại quốc” (formal and rare). Foreigner is a general term in Vietnam, which indicates all non-Vietnamese people. Westerner is translated into “Tây” (means “the West”).
Is Vietnamese food spicy?
In general, northern Vietnamese cuisine is not bold in any particular taste—sweet, salty, spicy, bitter, or sour. Most northern Vietnamese foods feature light and balanced flavors that result from subtle combinations of many different flavoring ingredients.
What is the most popular Vietnamese food?
Pho might be Vietnam’s most famous dish but bun cha is the top choice when it comes to lunchtime in the capital. Just look for the clouds of meaty smoke after 11 a.m. when street-side restaurants start grilling up small patties of seasoned pork and slices of marinated pork belly over a charcoal fire.
What do Vietnamese eat daily?
Meals emphasize rice, vegetables and fish, and cooking methods often involve steaming or stir-frying. Rice is the staple of the diet, consumed in some form in almost every meal. For Vietnamese adults, all three meals of the day may consist of steamed rice with side dishes of vegetables or fish or meat.
