There are many differences between Northern and Southern Vietnamese cuisine, the most notable being the use of fresh herbs and vegetables in Northern Vietnamese cuisine versus soy sauce and fish sauce in Southern Vietnamese cuisine. Another difference is that Northern Vietnamese cuisine is typically less spicy than Southern Vietnamese cuisine. However, despite these differences, there are also many similarities between the two cuisines, such as the use of rice as a staple food. photo: Anna…

I never realized that there were such significant differences between Northern and Southern Vietnamese cuisine! It's fascinating to learn about the contrasting flavors and ingredients used in each region. For anyone traveling to Vietnam, I would highly recommend trying dishes from both the North and South to fully appreciate the diversity of Vietnamese cuisine.

I've always been a fan of Vietnamese cuisine, and it's interesting to learn about the differences between the Northern and Southern regions. It's amazing how the use of different ingredients and cooking techniques can create such distinct flavors and dishes. I can't wait to try bun cha and hu tieu on my next trip to Vietnam!

Very little difference except that sea-food products are ore numerous and cheaper in the South than in the North

No worries, Southern Vietnam is indeed recognized for its plentiful seafood and more budget-friendly prices compared to the North. It's a seafood enthusiast's dream down there! As Anthony Bourdain once stated, The South has an abundance of seafood that influences their cuisine. So if you appreciate seafood, be sure to treat yourself to Southern Vietnamese cuisine. Enjoy!

It's heartwarming how Northern Vietnamese cuisine is gentle, focusing on clear broths and fresh herbs, while Southern Vietnamese cuisine showcases nurturing tropical ingredients. The diversity within Vietnamese cuisine is truly touching!
