Asian cuisine is among the most popular choices for Australians when it comes to dining out. In recent years Vietnamese restaurants in Victoria have established a strong following among diners intrigued and delighted by a culinary tradition very different from familiar Chinese, Indian, or Japanese dishes. The cuisine of Vietnam was influenced by its former French colonial occupiers, and Vietnamese restaurants and cafes often feature lunch specials of banh mi, the baguette-style sandwiches that have much spicier fillings than the average French bakery would offer.
The relaxed and casual style of Vietnamese cafes and diners is attuned to Australian culture. Many Victoria restaurant-goers have discovered the complex flavours of pho, the aromatic and rich Vietnamese noodle soup. Vietnamese dishes can be eaten at any time of the day, for example, banh xeo is a spicy rice flour pancake with various fillings and makes a popular brunch choice in Victoria restaurants while crunchy, piquant salads with papaya or lotus root feature on many lunch menus.
