But generally, most Vietnamese dishes are super fresh, full of bright flavors, loaded with herbs and salads, with just a bit of protein.
Myanmar, Khow Suey
Khow Suey is a one-pot meal with noodles and veggies cooked in coconut milk and decorated with peanuts and fried garlic. This is another dish which is loved worldwide because of its strong flavors.
