I prefer food down in the south. They do have a lot of rice dishes and I love rice. They also seem to have more variety that is not loaded with spice. I like some things hot but not everything.

I don't know if I ever actually noticed this before when I was spending time in Vietnam. It makes sense though that different areas would offer different tastes. This is pretty cool though learning about it. Now I know where to go to get the best of any type of dish.

I love how this article talks about the different tastes of Vietnamese food, and it's clear the author knows their stuff.

I'm planning a trip to Vietnam, and I'm excited to try all kinds of new foods.

I think the biggest thing to remember is that when it comes to food, cultural differences can be very subtle. In Vietnam, for example, there's a huge difference between the food in the North Central and South regions of Vietnam. But it's not like you'll be able to tell just by looking at a plate of food, you might not even taste it!

I've been lucky enough to travel all over Vietnam, and I can tell you that some of my favorite meals were from places where people from other regions would say "this isn't real Vietnamese food." And I'm sure they're right but that doesn't mean they weren't delicious!

The northern cuisine is known for its simplicity and fresh ingredients, while the southern cuisine is more complex, uses more spices and herbs.

A lot of this likely comes down to the weather. Different areas grow different crops at different times. I love that you can get so much diversity in terms of food dishes going to different areas!

I prefer central food the most. I think in some cases the tastes and quality are very simular but they have different ways of utilizing what they have.
