100 Vietnamese Foods to Try

Got this fun topic through Wandering Chopsticks Food Blog. Going through this list made me think about Vietnam and all the wonderful food I tried. I now have a list of new things to try on my next trip. I'm not sure if I would eat Southern Field Rat though. I have a thing for eating animals in its own form. I get freaked out finding a chicken head in a pot or any kinda of animal head beside fish. Even though Wandering Chopsticks have a great list, I could not resist making a list of my own. Vietnamese cuisine has such a large menu but I feel some of the best dishes are common everyday meals.

Bold the foods you've eaten.
Leave alone the foods you haven't eaten.
Strike through the foods you don't ever intend to eat.

wow, okay, i'm sitting in my office and am really hungry, was going to check your blog for some idea of quick meals tonight... I can't believe you gotten the chance to eat all of those meal you listed, i'm a bit stun and envious. now i'm just more confused as to what to eat...

btw, your new theme could not be rendered properly it ended up to be gray text on black. Google Chrome rendered it just fine though...isn't that funny that blogger is owned by google.
