Seen as a “gift from God”, rice is sacred in Vietnam. It is the centre of mealtimes, diet and culture. It’s one-size-fits-all. We pair ours with the satisfying crackle of crispy pork belly. Or tender steak cubes, tossed in a rich, peppery sauce. Or juicy chicken, infused with lemongrass & chilli. Rice soaks up these succulent flavours, making each bite more explosive than the last.
