I Love Hanoi Food

The Vietnamese noodles have different colors (white, red, yellow), shape and thickness, depending on the types and regions.  For example, Phở gà (noodles and chicken), Phở bò (noodles and beef), Bún bò Huế (Huế city’s beef noodles), Mỳ Quảng (Quảng Nam province’s noodles) etc.

Hanoi Beef Noodle

We often eat noodle soup, rice porridge, sticky rice or bread for breakfast. The major meals are lunch and dinner, when we eat rice, meat or fish, vegetables and soup. Vietnamese people love to eat freshly cooked food and mostly don’t like freezing food. We go to markets to buy food on a daily basis. Women are always busy thinking about what to cook today and tomorrow for their families.

I found this paragraph on a website about food and wine. I agree wholeheartedly with the comment made by a foreigner, when he said about our food culture:

Bún thang - Noodle soup with chicken, fried egg, pork and mushroom.

“I loved a lot of things about Vietnam and the Vietnamese people, but what struck me most was their obsession with food, cooking and eating. I was reminded over and over again of Italy, where the same obsession obtains. Conversation with strangers doesn’t revolve around discussions of the weather, but just like Italy revolves around food – what I ate today, what I’m going to eat tonight, what I’m planning to eat tomorrow. The Vietnamese are a bunch of Asian foodies.”

I have never eaten fast food in Vietnam. I’ve never cared about fast food, because Vietnamese food are so good. Sometimes I ate fast food when I traveled abroad, just because of their convenience. I also ate noodles in other countries, like Japan, Thailand and Laos, however the noodles in Vietnam are the best noodles I’ve eaten.
