HA NOI (VNS) — US-based news website Business Insider has listed the most iconic food to eat in 50 countries, describing Viet Nam's pho as a must-try.
It said the noodle soup is so popular throughout Viet Nam that it is served everywhere, even in restaurants hidden away in small city alleyways or village storefronts.
In June last year Business Insider had described Ha Noi's pho as the first of "40 meals you should eat in your lifetime".
Another American newspaper, the Huffington Post, called pho a "bowl of heaven" when listing it as one of the 12 most delicious foods people should discover when travelling abroad.
CNN placed pho at No. 28 in the list of the world's 50 best dishes, saying "some dishes you eat to stay alive, while others you eat because to not eat them would be a crime."
Among the other dishes named in the Business Insider list were asado, the grilled Argentinean steak; wiener schnitzel, the deep fried Austrian veal cutlet; feijoada, the Brazilian stew made from black beans and smoked beef and pork; and xiaolongbao, China's soup dumpling. — VNS
