Ordering Vietnamese dishes

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.
