Vietnamese cuisine is influenced by the ancient imperial cuisine of the Nguyễn dynasty and the French colonization. Its dishes are always modelled according to the balance of the five elements: spicy, sour, bitter, salty and sweet.
Vietnamese cuisine bears the influence of its neighbouring cuisines: Indian, Thai, Cambodian, Malay and Chinese, as well as of its colonizers: the French. Contrast and balance are the principles that decide how vegetables and spices are carefully combined with poultry, meat or fish. The resulting dishes are scrumptious but light and colourful to the eye. The importance given to the freshness of ingredients and the minimal use of oil has earned Vietnamese food a reputation of being one of the world’s healthiest.
