Note about Vietnamese cuisine

The 3 main Culinary Cuisines of Vietnam are North, Central, South cuisines. Around 1954, there are major of North, Central  Vietnamese  immigrated to  Saigon, south Vietnam.  Saigon became the melting pot, so we have rich regional foods  such as  “Pho” (north region), Bun Bo Hue (central region), and Hu Tieu (south region).

Large cities in California, Texas, Florida, US, there are big Vietnamese populations.  There, we have many regional Vietnamese foods.

In Tra Vinh, and Mekong Delta, food is  different from other regions of Vietnam, because food is mixed by French, Chinese, Vietnamese, Khmer cuisines. Our food guides are based on southern Vietnamese  cuisines.

  1. Thanks for the forum about Nem Nuong Dipping Sauce from http://portlandfood.org/topic/14280-best-nem-nuong-cuon-in-town/. After reading the discussion, I modified nem nuong dipping sauce guide.
    The 3 main Culinary Cuisines of Vietnam are North, Central, South cuisines. Vietnamese food in Saigon, California, Texas are from north, central, and south Vietnam. Vietnamese food from the Mekong Delta is different from other regions of Vietnam, because it’s influence by French, Chinese, Vietnamese, Khmer cuisines. Before 1975, there were very few central and north Vietnamese people settled down in the Mekong Delta, so there was no “Pho” noodle soup there. My food guides are based on Tra Vinh and Mekong Delta cuisine.
