"Banh mi Phuong" in Hoi An, which was hailed as"a symphony within a sandwich" by the late world famous chef AnthonyBourdain, is also on the list. “Arrive hungry and order one with everything.You will be handed a fresh, crunchy baguette filled with salad, pork, pate,fish sauce, mayonnaise and a gratuitous fried egg, wrapped in a piece of localnewspaper," Traveller wrote.  

Snails, a popular dish among Vietnamese diners, still seemsto be exotic for foreign foodies, but was among the top 21 dishes of 2018.Different types of snails with different methods of cooking – fried, pan-fried,grilled, boiled, simmered are “all delicious, particularly when paired with coldbeer and a humid evening”.
