CNN has recently named two Vietnamese classics, Pho and spring rolls, in its list of the world's 50 best foods.
Among the dishes named by CNN, spring rolls stand at 30 and pho at 28.
CNN says spring rolls made from pork, shrimp, herbs, rice vermicelli and other ingredients wrapped in rice paper is served at room temperature. It's "meat light," with the flavors of refreshing herbs erupting in your mouth.
Dipped in a slightly sweet Vietnamese sauce laced with ground peanuts, it's wholesome, easy and the very definition of "moreish."
Pho is a "national specialty" of Vietnam, and is mispronounced by many foreigners.
Pho is served with broth, fresh noodles and herbs. The ingredients combine to create a unique flavor in a delicious and well balanced dish.
According to CNN, Pho, oft-mispronounced national dish is just broth, fresh rice noodles, a few herbs and usually chicken or beef. But it's greater than the sum of its parts -- fragrant, tasty and balanced.
