What You Can Expect From Our Vietnamese, Thai, And Chinese Restaurant
For many of us, it’s easy to get a hankering for Asian food. From rice to noodles to meats, Asian cuisine can be very similar, and hands-down mouthwatering. However, what sets Vietnamese, Thai, and Chinese food apart from one another? Let’s find out!
Vietnamese cuisine is distinct in the fresh herbs and vegetables that are used copiously in dishes. With a minimal amount of added fats and lots of fresh veggies, Vietnamese food is often light and healthy. Pho, a light noodle soup with broth and rice noodles, is a traditional Vietnamese dish that exemplifies the inclusion of light and refreshing herbs and vegetables in the cuisine. Bean sprouts are one of the vegetables that are consistently included in many dishes.
What’s interesting about Vietnamese food is that, although it’s very unique and distinct in and of itself, it gathers a lot of inspiration from Chinese cuisine. The Chinese ruled in Vietnam for many years, so their ways of cooking were left behind, like stir-frying and steaming. Vietnamese cuisine also draws from the French with their use of onions and chilies. From refreshing Pho to beefy stews, you can’t go wrong with the fresh, delectable taste of Vietnamese cuisine.
The culture of Thailand is ingrained in the cuisine, and vice versa. While many meals in the West consist of an appetizer, main course, and then dessert, Thai food does not — all dishes are presented and eaten in conjunction with one another. Traditional thai food is cooked around four main seasonings: sweet, sour, spicy, and salty. A good example of this is a Thai meal of fish, vegetables, noodles, soup, and fresh fruit for dessert. Rich in flavor and culture, you can’t go wrong when you order Thai food.
For many Westerners, Chinese food is the first that comes to mind when thinking about Asian cuisine. While not the only type of Asian food available, authentic Chinese food is hands down delicious. Like most types of Asian cuisine, like Thai and Vietnamese, Chinese cuisine is rich in history and culture. From cooked and steamed meats, like pork, chicken, duck, and beef, to chow mein and dumplings, Chinese food is versatile and can range from rich flavors to more light and refreshing vegetable dishes.
The great thing about Asian cuisine is that there are inumerous options for vegetarians. If you are not a meat eater, chances are you’ve turned to Asian vegetable and tofu dishes.
