The website says bánh mì (baguette) is extremely popular in Việt Nam and sold at many stalls along the streets.
“Although there are many shops selling bread, each shop has a different taste, this is what makes branding and differentiation for each diner.”
It says phở is a traditional dish, one of the typical dishes in Vietnamese cuisine.
The distinctive flavour and great taste of bún bò Huế (Huế beef noodles) originated in the country’s old capital, but visitors can easily find this dish everywhere in HCM City from sidewalk stalls to restaurants, the website notes.
Bún chả is a dish with noodles and fried pork grilled over charcoal and served with spicy tomato sauce. The bún chả sauce is considered the soul of the dish and put in the bowl in small quantities and very hot.
Many foreign tourists in HCM City commented that the city has a diverse array of shops ranging both in quality and price from luxury to affordable and they all carry their own personal style.
