On top of the list is “pho.”

CNN travel describes pho as a simple staple, consisting of a salty broth, fresh rice noodles, a sprinkling of herbs and chicken or beef. It features predominately in the local diet. It's cheap, tasty and widely available at all hours.

The second famous dish, but top choice when it comes to lunchtime in the capital is bún chả, according to CNN travel.

Small patties of seasoned pork and slices of marinated pork belly are grilled up over a charcoal fire. Once they’re charred and crispy, the morsels are served with a bowl of fish sauce-heavy broth, a basket of herbs and a helping of rice noodles.

Other Vietnamese street foods which CNN travel recommends include Xoi (savory sticky rice); banh xeo (crispy crepe bulging with pork, shrimp and bean sprouts, plus the garnish of fresh herbs), Gỏi cuốn (spring rolls),  Bún bò nam bộ, Cao lầu, Bánh mì, Bột chiên, and café trứng (Vietnamese egg coffee).-VNA
