Dining Tips


Vietnamese

Vietnamese cuisine offers many healthy dishes because much of its flavor comes from fresh herbs such as mint, lemongrass, Thai basil and coriander. Rice, fruits, and vegetables are commonly used as the staple ingredients, whereas meats are used as an accent to dishes. For healthier Vietnamese options, consider:

  • Canh chua tom (sour shrimp soup)
  • Goi cuon (fresh spring roll)
  • Bo xa lui nuong (grilled beef with lemon grass in rice paper with vegetables)
  • Bún chả (grilled pork and vermicelli noodles over salad, sliced cucumber, herbs and bean sprouts)
  • Mi quang (broth, noodles, herbs, vegetables, and roasted rice chips)
  • Lychee in light syrup or tropical fruit sorbets
