Fresh, light and flavorful, Vietnamese cuisine is a perfect blend of fresh ingredients, pungent fish sauce, tart limes and a wide variety of familiar and exotic herbs. Pork, chicken and fish are popular, but there is also a well developed vegetarian culinary tradition. An endless variety of rice noodles are common, most famously in phở bò, the beef noodle soup from the northern part of the country.
