Vietnamese cuisine . Spicy, yes. Boring, bland, uninteresting, predictable – definitely not. Worth a try? Absolutely. The food itself, in fact, is enough reason to trek through Vietnam. Often, authentic cuisine means street food. Part of the whole experience is jostling eager, hungry patrons to get a steaming bowl at a market’s most famous stall. From the signature lemon grass to so-called secret ingredients, Vietnamese cuisine is a whole worthy adventure in itself.
