Vietnamese food in France

imageIf you’ve ever wonder why an Asian country would be known for a delicacy that looks a lot like a baguette sandwich (Bánh mì) just review Vietnam’s history. The French colonized Vietnam for more than 6 decades so there are many French gastronomic influences in the Vietnamese cuisine. They brought delicious ingredients and flavors indigenous to France. While I’m here in France, I tried my favorite Vietnamese dish, Bún gà chä gïò ( grilled chicken, fried egg roll, lettuce, carrot, peanut with vermicelli) and discovered that the favors are ever more French influenced with more intensity and creaminess rather than clean and refreshing taste typical of version in California.
