Hotels that hosted SEA Games athletes and other officials carefully prepared dishes fitting the diverse tastes and preferences, but guests also enjoyed Vietnamese specialties to the hilt.

At the 31st SEA Games, the men's football teams in Group B - Malaysia, Laos, Thailand, Singapore and Cambodia – stayed at the Nam Cuong hotel in Nam Dinh Province, just two km from the Thien Truong Stadium.

Ingredients for noodle dish 'bun thang' are displayed at Pan Pacific Hotel in Hanoi for SEA Games athletes.

The hotel's kitchen had to serve the five teams with special nutritional requirements keeping in mind their religious faiths and preferences.

Nguyen Van Chien, the hotel's manager, said that the three main meals for the teams were served as a buffet of 60-70 dishes.

For example, the Indonesian team wanted masala fried eggs, which the team leader said suited the nutritional needs of the players. Some of the Indonesian players were Muslims who don’t eat pork, so their meals had to be adjusted accordingly.

For the Thai team, the hotel’s chefs served stir-fried noodles with special spices. Before the meal, the Thai team sent a player to the kitchen to provide guidance and instructions.

Chef Dong Van Quang said that the Thai players ate food that was quite salty and had more requirements to satisfy their taste.

While they got their food cooked to their liking, the Thai team also enjoyed the Vietnamese beef noodle soup pho.

Goalkeeper Kawin Thamsatchanan said he had tried it before and knew pho was a traditional Vietnamese dish. It was delicious and he had it every day when the team was in Nam Dinh.
