I understand why Vietnam is Anthony Bourdain’s favorite place to eat. Banh Mi could be the world’s most perfect sandwich. Pho (pronunciation guide) is a deliciously comforting noodle soup. My wife got hooked on Bun (rice vermicelli) dishes and Vietnamese iced coffee (very strong, sweetened with condensed milk) when she worked in lower Manhattan near Chinatown. From what I’ve sampled in this country, I’d love to try the real thing in Saigon or Hanoi.
