Being the omnivore that I am, I will eat anything, including vegetarian cuisine!

The Vietnamese, like all countries, have always eaten dishes that would fit a vegetarian's diet. However, as a result of western cultural influences, a desire to cater to foreign vegetarian tourists, and a growing vegetarian culture, vegetarian restaurants are now opening in Vietnam. In fact, one recently opened half a block from my apartment complex.

As you can see below, the Vietnamese put their own spin on it. The top photo is of a salad made from Julian-ed carrots, some kind of chopped greens, and lotus roots. I particularly like the purple orchid. The bottom photo is of spring rolls made with vegetables of some sort and a bowl of minced garlic and sliced red pepper dipping sauce. Needless to say, but I'll say it anyway “It was "ngon quá”!  (very delicious)
