Eating in Vietnam ranges from cheap noodle soups on the street to a banquet in one of the luxury hotels. You can find a wide range of international fare including French, Italian, American, Indian, Chinese and Japanese.
The most typical Vietnamese food is Pho, the noodle soup with meat in it. It is very cheap at about 50c per bowl and usually well spiced. The main types are: Pho Bo with beef, Pho Bo Tai with rare beef fillets and Pho Ga with chicken.
Nuoc Mam is the fermented fish sauce used to spice absolutely everything in Vietnam.
Seasonal fruits (e.g. dragon fruit, rambutans and longans), fresh vegetables and local seafood are widely available, although supply can vary by region and season. All fruits and vegetables should be cooked or peeled before eaten.
Drinking water or ice is generally not recommended, even in the cities. Bottled water is cheap and readily available instead.
