Ordering Vietnamese dishes

LotusRapper | May 3, 2015 07:47 AM

Found a site (2 parts) that provides useful pronunciation guides for popular dish names, greetings, phrases and place names.

So next time don't you go ordering "bun theet newyong chah gee-oh" when you really should be saying "boon tit nyong chah yeoh" ;-)

I'm good with the tones and inflections because of their similarities to Cantonese (and Toisan dialect), but the nuances with the consonants can be tricky.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
