Vietnamese cuisine is all about balance. Rice is a staple that provides carbohydrates. Land is plentiful so chicken, beef, and pork are popular. The country’s proximity to the sea provides protein from fish and other sea creatures. Various vitamins and minerals are found in leafy greens, fruits and vegetables. While spices such as ginger, chili, lime, basil, mint and coriander mix with fermented fish sauces give each dish a rich and complex aroma as well as flavor profile. A Vietnamese Buffet is sure to be a hit at your next lunch as your entire team will be able to craft themselves a meal that is satisfying and flavorful!
Typically, ordering buffet style Vietnamese catering means you'll receive a base of rice, your choice of proteins and a selection of additional toppings such as lettuce, pickled carrots, daikon, cucumbers, peanuts, jalapenos, mint, sambal hot sauce and fish sauce. But for more traditional Vietnamese options, the food will have a mix of Chinese and Thai flavors with an emphasis on hearty curry and stew-based options. It's important to note that most meats are marinated in fish sauce as well.
