Eat when the locals do
You should eat during Vietnam’s mealtimes, because after that it can be quite difficult to find any stalls still opened. In the morning, you might want to try out a bowl of hot noodles. Morning vendors can usually be found in the areas near markets or schools.
The lunch stalls in Vietnam open 11:300 am – 1pm. There’s a wide range of street food for you to choose from, such as caramelised fish and roasted pork, garlicky greens, fluffy omelette. At around 5pm, you’ll see that the stalls and restaurants in Vietnam are back to business again. 6 – 8pm is the ideal time to taste some grilled barbecue seafood or flaming hotpots.
Choose the right stalls
Don’t just choose any stall you can find on the road. Check if the eatery can meet the following criteria:
The stalls need to be clean and organized
The dishes needs to be fresh and nicely presented
Choose the busier stalls
Spice things up with sauces and condiments
To perfect to your dining experience, don’t forget to add the right sauces and condiments to your dish. On the table you’ll likely to find chili paste, garlic and chili in vinegar fish sauce, limes, freshly chopped chili etc.
