Vietnamese food question

SIMIHOUND | Mar 5, 2011 09:43 AM

I have a few questions about items that came with my Vietnamese food at a new restaurant in my area. When a main dish which has no sauce such as bbq beef comes with vermicelli noodles and plain rice are they to be eaten alone? Was I supposed to add something to it?

What is traditionally done with the large amount of bean sprouts and other vegetables that come with the food? Are they eaten plain? I understand that some items are wrapped with others items but some items don't wrap if you know what I mean?

When I eat pho, do I toss in the veggies that come with it?

Thanks. I am new to this type of cuisine.
