You can see there is an array of Vietnamese dishes being offered, and some are so alien to us. The creative usage of fish sauces, shrimp paste, soy sauce, herbs, lemongrass, Vietnamese mints, coriander, lime leave the food to have a distinctive taste. On top of that, they are healthy with minimal usage of oil but focuses more on usage of fresh ingredients, and features a lot of herbs and vegetables.
