Bun rieu.

"Bun rieucua" is described as "highly flavoursome" and “almost unfairly inexpensive” at 1.5 USD a bowl. This noodle dish is eaten widely across the country with a fragrant soup based on crushed freshwater crabs along with noodles, crab meat, fried tofu, pork and fresh herbs.

"Banh mi Phuong" in Hoi An, which was hailed as "a symphony within a sandwich" by the late world famous chef Anthony Bourdain, is also on the list. “Arrive hungrily and order one with everything. You will be handed a fresh, crunchy baguette filled with salad, pork, pate, fish sauce, mayonnaise and a gratuitous fried egg, wrapped in a piece of local newspaper," Traveller wrote.

Snails, a popular dish among Vietnamese diners, still seems to be exotic for foreign foodies but was among the top 21 dishes of 2018. Different types of snails with different methods of cooking – fried, pan-fried, grilled, boiled, simmered are “all delicious, particularly when paired with cold beer and a humid evening”.
