Vietnamese cuisine is ranked among the 15 favourite cuisines in the world, according to a survey conducted by YouGov, a UK global public opinion and data company.
Vietnamese cuisine’s rising popularity has pushed it slightly ahead of Hong Kong and Taiwan to rank 13th among 34 most popular cuisines in the world.
YouGov is an online market research company based in the U.K.
The survey, conducted between May to December last year, ranked national cuisines after collecting responses from 25,000 food lovers from 24 countries and territories.
55 percent of the respondents chose Vietnamese food as their favourite, compared to 54 percent for Hong Kong and 50 percent for Taiwanese cuisine.
Italian food topped the list at 84 percent, followed by Chinese and Thai cuisines.
Vietnamese cuisine has become better known in the world over the last couple of decades, with international chefs and prestigious food magazines praising several national dishes.
In 2017, Hanoi and Saigon, Vietnam’s biggest metropolises, were named among the world’s best food destinations by Caterwings, a site that offers online food ordering services in Europe.
The Vietnamese iced coffee with condensed milk has also been lauded by publications like NatGeo and The New York Times.
