Lots of Vietnam's cuisine is defined by Hue, primarily due to the historical importance as the Nguyen Dynasty's capital. While its economic & political importance has declined into nothingness, usurped by the bustling Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city, its culture lives on throughout the country in the form of food, products, languages and many more.
Food is one that permeates through every level of society, and no matter which Vietnamese city you are in, you will definitely see 'Hue' signs plastered all over local eateries! Therefore if you're interested in Vietnamese cuisine, you must learn the way they are made in Hue, where it all began.
