Spring rolls (goy coo-un)
You know spring rolls: Those soft, bouncy, wiggly rice paper wraps filled with crunchy vegetables, vermicelli noodles and sauteed shrimp or pork. These are typically served with peanut sauce, and one of the most commonly encountered appetizers on any Vietnamese menu — as well as one of the most accessible.
Pho/ Noodle Soup (fuh)
Among all the Vietnamese dishes that came to the attention of the people in the western hemisphere, nothing else has received such tremendous acceptance as pho. Pho is considered the national dish of Vietnam, and it has captured the fascination of so many people in the west because of its deceptive simplicity and its complex flavors. Pho is the perfect comfort food – warm, hearty, and deliciously refreshing.
Bún / Vermicelli (boon)
The same rice vermicelli noodles found in pho are served cool atop a bed of greens to make sort of a rice noodle salad. Bun is usually topped with hot meat (chargrilled pork is a popular choice) for a nice contrast in textures and temperatures, then tossed with fish sauce and whatever else you decide to jazz it up with. As with pho, hoisin sauce and Sriracha are popular additions.
Com / Rice Plates (gum)
Com dia refers to a rice plate, while anything after “com” on a menu refers to the type of meat and other toppings that come with the rice. Thit nuong is most common, but other favorites include ga nuong and bo nuong (chargrilled chicken and beef, respectively). All rice plates also come with a dipping sauce to perk up the rice and a bowl of broth laced with garlic and/or scallions to sip between bites of the sticky rice and cleanse the throat.
