For those looking to explore different world cuisines, Vietnamese food is a great place to start. It uses everything from tofu to beef to shrimp, so there is something to satisfy every taste at your table. Communal dining is a natural part of Vietnamese cuisine, so it’s always a good idea to serve the meal with a variety of sauces, fresh herbs, and sides to enhance any dining experience—large or small.
The best part is, today’s grocery stores carry more products that align with the ever-growing demand for global food. Once hard-to-find ingredients are now readily available at your local market. If you can’t find what you need in the global foods aisle, check out the health food section, where you’re bound to find specialty ingredients like rice noodles and coconut milk.
