Food in Vietnam

My most primal reason to travel is to eat. I can really just end my post like that. Delicious pho with authentic broth, fresh seafood that is still alive until it hits the fire minutes before it lands on your plate, soft buns surrounding a savory pork and egg filling. Can we take a second to talk about the sweets? I didn't get a chance to snap a photo of Che - a traditional Vietnamese dessert - before it was quickly ingested by my family and I. But the crepes and the Japanese matcha dessert were phenomenal. It's very clear that Vietnam has many influences including French, Chinese, and Japanese. And I will definitely say that one of the many things I will miss the most is the food.
