The people of Central Vietnam have a distinctive menu that includes spicy food and seafood. Bun bo hue, or “spicy beef soup,” is one dish from this region known for its intense flavor as it contains peppers to bring out the inherent taste in meat dishes like pork or chicken noodle soups. Another popular item on their list would be banh xeo – flat noodles mixed with shrimp paste served cold during summer months when you can’t tolerate any heat! Finally there’s goi cuon: fresh spring rolls made using rice paper wrapping around vegetables such at cucumbers then filled up inside before being wrapped into little balls which look appetizing enough even without sauce.
