Vietnamese Buffet and DIY Bowls Catering

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!
