Back Story

Watch the magic unfold, find out how Eat like a Viet was born.


Discover Vietnam through my eyes, I’ll take you to the coolest spots to eat, hang out and get to know the locals!

Then let’s come back to our kitchens to cook the amazing food that the streets of Vietnam has to offer.


"If you’re lucky enough to visit Vietnam, soak up every experience. It will stay with you long after you’ve left."

Did you ever wonder why Vietnamese ladies are always covered head to toe when it's 30 degrees outside? It’s because, culturally, fair skin is desirable. It is associated with wealth and beauty, as it is assumed that if you have dark skin you must do hard labour and work outdoors

Do you know why Vietnamese fishermen use round boats like the one opposite? During the French colonial era taxes were levied on boats that the fishermen could not afford. In response, the fishermen designed circular woven baskets that floated but didn't look like aboat and therefore escaped the tax
