Vietnam boasts street food in Moscow

NDO –The Vietnamese Street Food Festival, the eight of its kind, opened at the Hanoi-Moscow Trade Centre complex (Incentra) in Moscow, Russia, on March 8, with the aim of promoting the Vietnamese culinary culture to Russian people and international friends.


Under the theme “Celebrating the International Women’s Day March 8”, the three-day festival includes a wide range of activities featuring the Vietnamese cultural identity.

Visitors are offered the characteristic dishes of Vietnamese cuisine including nem ran (fried spring rolls), pho bo (beef noodle soup), and bun cha (noodles with grilled pork), in addition to various simple and distinguished street foods such as banh mi, banhduc, banhcuon, bun thang, and others.

Visitors also have an opportunity to admire Vietnamese art performances, traditional games and the cooking of Vietnamese dishes.

Besides traditional Vietnamese dishes, a wide range of products made in Vietnam are introduced to visitors including coffee, tea, noodles, spices, fruits and dry goods in a bid to turn the Vietnamese Street Food Festival into a trade and culture promotion programme held regularly at Incentra.

According to incomplete statistics, more than 200 Vietnamese cuisine restaurants are operating in Moscow.

General Director of Incentra Investment company, Nguyen Canh Hong Linh, cum head of the Organising Board of the festival, said that Incentra will invite more chefs from different Vietnamese regions to Russia to introduce international visitors to more Vietnamese dishes at the next festivals.
