2. Go for Pho

When it comes to choosing what to eat, you really can’t go wrong with pho. This traditional Vietnamese soup is made with rice noodles, beef or chicken broth, and topped with fresh herbs and vegetables. It’s simple, delicious, and will definitely fill you up.

3. Leave Room for Dessert

Vietnamese breakfast wouldn’t be complete without a little something sweet. Again, there are lots of options to choose from but some of our favorites include chewy tapioca pudding and soft custard buns filled with lotus paste.

4. Don’t Skip the Coffee

I found this article about the rules of breakfast in Vietnam to be quite fascinating. The communal aspect of breakfast with family and friends is something I think many other cultures could benefit from. The light and healthy options for breakfast also sound delicious and I would love to try them myself.

It’s fascinating to learn about the breakfast culture in Vietnam, where breakfast is not just a meal but a social activity. The emphasis on a balanced meal with rice, meat, vegetables, and soup is impressive. It’s also interesting to note the preference for hot beverages instead of sweet foods for breakfast. As they say, Pho-nomenal breakfast experience!

It’s funny, I’ve been to Vietnam before, and I’m pretty sure these rules don’t apply there.

In fact, it seems like the only rule that applies in Vietnam is “eat whatever you want, whenever you want.” The food is so good that the people there don’t even care if you have breakfast or not.

Breakfast in Vietnam is way more peaceful and relaxing compared to what I grew up with… Which was a rush, yelling, and just generally not healthy food!

I tend not to mix salty with sweet. So when I was in Vietnam, I would either have pho or I would have something sweet with a coffee for breakfast. I do like how everyone makes a point to make this meal so relaxing.

I like that soup is considered breakfast. I have always preferred lunch meals for breakfast over the standard everyone else seems to eat… Cereal, donuts, eggs and bacon.
