Vietnamese food: one of the healthiest cuisines in the world
The Twin Cities is home to a large and growing Vietnamese population, and that means we have excellent choices when it comes to authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Traditional Vietnamese cooking is known for using fresh herbs and vegetables, little dairy and oil and complementary textures, along with five fundamental taste senses: spicy, sour , bitter, salty and sweet.
