In Vietnamese culinary culture, there are many ways of processing, performing and presenting the meals, which can be described in 9 features below:
1. Sociable diversity
Vietnamese can easily absorb the culinary culture of other people and regions, then turn it into their own ways. This is also the culinary highlights of our country from North to South.
In a Vietnamese meal, you often see some generations gathering together.
2. Less Fat
Vietnam dishes are mainly made from vegetables and fruits, so they would be low fat. The dishes neither require a lot of meat like in Western, nor use too much oil as in Chinese dishes.
3. Strong fragrance
When preparing food, Vietnamese often use fish sauce to add and combine with other ingredients, which made the food more delicious. Each dish has its own suitable sauces depending on its flavor.
4. The combination of many substances and flavors.
Vietnamese dishes often include many types of food such as meat, shrimp, crabs, along with vegetables, beans and rice. There is also the synthesis of many flavor such as sour, spicy, salty, sweet, etc.
5. Tasty and healthy
The phrases of tasty and healthy are always in the spirit of the Vietnamese food. Vietnam cuisine is the combination of dishes and flavors, in order to create a distinctive look of the country. These “cold” foods such as duck or snails are usually processed with spice and warming food as ginger, Vietnamese mint, etc. It's the balance way of interesting yin and yang that only exists in Vietnam.

6. Using chopsticks
Pick up is an art, how to pick the food without losing it, etc. The Vietnamese chopsticks appear in every family meal, even when rotating or grilling, Vietnamese do not often use fork to skewer as the Western.
Community factor exists obviously in the cuisine of Vietnam, for example, there is always a bowl of fish sauce in a meal, or at least put them in small bowls from that big bowl of fish sauce.
Before each meal, Vietnamese have a habit of inviting. The invitation expresses social, emotion, hospitality, and respects to the others.
9. Clean the wheels
Vietnamese often prepare the dish and serve it at one time, unlike Westerners eat each dish separately.
