"Pho" (rice noodle soup served with beef or chicken), "Bun cha" (rice noodles served with grilled pork), and "Banh mi" (Vietnamese baguette filled with ham, pate, salad... ) are listed in the list of top 100 famous food and beverages from countries all over the world by the World Records Union (Worldkings).
The Worldkings wrote that ‘Food and beverages always bring a source of inspiration to people and also reflect the culture of a nation. That is the reason why World Records Union cooperated with Viet Nam Book of Records in collecting and classifying the Top 100 famous food and beverages of countries all over the world.’
The organisation described ‘Pho’ as a traditional dish and one of the most typical dishes of Vietnamese cuisine.
Meanwhile ‘bun cha’ is described as a famous specialty of Hanoi. It is a perfect combination of roast pork, salad (salad, green papaya) and sauces.
‘Banh mi’ also received praise from many international tourists. The sandwich is really popular in Viet Nam. It has very different forms depending on where the visitors are in Viet Nam, according to the Worldkings.
