Pho bò (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup)
A trip to Vietnam is incomplete without pho.
Pho Gà (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup)
I had pho almost every morning and found the broth to be simple and light. Although less ingredients are used compared to South Vietnamese pho, I found North Vietnamese pho to be delicious!
Hạ Long Bay
Cá kho to (Vietnamese caramelised & braised catfish)
Nem cá (deep fried fish spring rolls)
